Reading Tolkien

Jun 18, 2021

Today I present an interview with scholar and writer Dawn Walls-Thumma. We discuss Dawn's essay 'Attainable Vistas: Historical Bias in Tolkien's Legendarium as a Motive for Transformative Fanworks' published in Volume 3 of the Journal of Tolkien Research.

We discuss a range of topics, including historical bias in The Silmarillion and what it means for readers of the book, the state of Tolkien scholarship, fandom, fanfiction, and other matters. Join us!
