Tolkien was a specialist in a recherché field. He did not, at least initially, write for a mass audience. Yet for many in the 60s his books, particularly Lord of the Rings, became a political badge and an interpretative text. Widely translated, his fiction won the accolade both of parody and of its own learned journal; rock bands took names from his characters; and "Tolkien" - or how he was read - demonstrably affected modern fantasy, in writing, film, video- and board-game. This book explores how his work came to be so diversely received. Dr Moseley's critical discussion examines Tolkien's view of fiction as "sub-creation", exploring his analysis of mythopoeia and of the status of art and literature in relation to his own practice. It is argued that in the critical concerns of Tolkien and his circle lie the key to important issues in his fiction. His use of linguistic game and literary pastiche is explored without obscuring his emotional commitment to the making of myths that expressed some of h

Issue #19 of The Other Journal examines our complex relationships with food from a theological bent. The thoughtful contributors to this issue take us to Middle Earth and the Romanian city of Constanta. They swing by swank Manhattan bistros and raucous NFL stadiums on game-day. But most importantly, they return us to the communion table and to that first garden where God walked with us and gave us the gift of his creation. The issue features essays by Elizabeth L. Antus, Peter M. Candler Jr., William T. Cavanaugh, Matthew Dickerson, David Grumett, Ryan Harper, Chelle Stearns, Stephen H. Webb, and David Williams; interviews by Daniel Bowman Jr., Heather Smith Stringer, and Jon Tschanz with John Leax, Lee Price, and Norman Wirzba; and creative writing, poetry, and art by Chris Anderson, B. L. Gentry, John Leax, Katherine Lo, Robert Hill Long, Lee Price, and Alissa Wilkinson.

Political philosophy is nothing other than looking at things political under the aspect of eternity. This book invites us to look philosophically at political things in J.R.R. Tolkien's legendarium, demonstrating that Tolkien's potent mythology can be brought into rich, fruitful dialogue with works of political philosophy and political theology as different as Plato's Timaeus, Aquinas' De Regno, Hobbes's Leviathan, and Erik Peterson's "Monotheism as a Political Problem." It concludes that a political reading of Tolkien's work is most luminous when conducted by the harmonious lights of fides et ratio as found in the thought of Thomas Aquinas. A broad study of Tolkien and the political is especially pertinent in that the legendarium operates on two levels. As a popular mythology it is, in the author's own words "a really long story that would hold the attention of readers, amuse them, delight them, and at times maybe excite them or deeply move them." But the stories of The Silmarillion and The Lord of the Rings contain deeper teachings that can only be drawn out when read philosophically. Written from the vantage of a mind that is deeply Christian, Tolkien's stories grant us a revelatory gaze into the major political problems of modernity--from individualism to totalitarianism, sovereignty to surveillance, terror to technocracy. As an "outsider" in modernity, Tolkien invites us to question the modern in a manner that moves beyond reaction into a vivid and compelling vision of the common good.
