J.R.R. Tolkien and the Uses of Fantasy

Fantasy literature is enjoying a new surge of interest sparked by the popularity of the Harry Potter series and the film version of The Lord of the Rings. While fantasy has always made for popular reading or listening, what accounts for its special appeal? In honor of Hobbit Day (September 22nd), Clia Goodwin, our guest from the NH Humanities Council, explains how Tolkien’s world has a mythic structure that reveals much about the human condition. This program is sponsored by a grant from the NH Humanities Council.

Join us on Tuesday, September 17, 2013 at 6:30pm for J.R.R. Tolkien and the Uses of Fantasy.
