Présentation de l'éditeur

"DECONSTRUCTING TOLKIEN has something to offer just about everyone, no matter where your particular passions may lie. In this collection of essays, stories, discourses, and tributes, Ed McFadden has gathered together a wide range of topics, perspectives, and outlooks on some of the most intriguing factors concerning THE LORD OF THE RINGS. LORD OF THE RINGS is a masterpiece that can be examined and re-examined through the course of one's life. The complex narrative, written with nonlinear gambits, plot-twists, stratagems, and a fusion of secondary stories, offer themselves up to continual review and analysis." -from the introduction by Tom Piccirilli, author of Mean Sheep, The Night Class and Grave Men

This special e-book edition contains new analysis of The Hobbit not available in the print edition.

Praise for Deconstructing Tolkien: A Fundamental Analysis of The Lord of the Rings-

Nth Degree Magazine – “[DT] is one of the most approachable analyses of Tolkien that I’ve read. McFadden alternates between his own opinions on Tolkien and fiction from authors that he feels had some influence on The Lord of the Rings. I found myself disagreeing with McFadden’s points almost as often as I agreed with them but, most importantly, McFadden’s analysis always made me look deeper at a story that I thought I knew pretty well already. And isn’t that what all good analyses should do?” by Jennifer Walford. “Mcfadden’s choice of layout for this book using essays and short fiction is innovative and works quite well for the purposes of providing a rich understanding of the Tolkien phenomena. Blending essay with notable fiction, Mcfadden provides thought provoking evidence on Tolkien’s inspirations, especially from his contemporaries and friend C.S. Lewis, and the influence of writers like H.G. Wells. Even more impressive was the inclusion of a story by self-proclaimed protégé of the Tolkien school of style, Jane Yolen. This inclusion solidified McFadden’s arguments on how pervasive LOTR has been, and in light of the films, will continue to be for many generations.”

Interesting views. I have read Tolkien's books several times and I must say I never really thought about any deep meaning in any of them. I just considered them entertaining fantasy. This book made me think and that is a good thing.

It was good, but it really could have covered more than it did. I guess it's okay, though. Read it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Bravo! A must read for continuing appreciation of Tolkien 11 décembre 2012
Par Danny T - Publié sur
I just finished reading E Mcfadden's Deconstruction of Tolkien and found it really well written and insightful. It brought back to me many fond memories of my youth and this is perhaps the single most important thing I got from reading it, that, and the hopeful idea that my young son will also be enthralled by these works as much as I am.
I first read the books in high school -and reread them during my grueling wrestling season every year. Some of the other teamates also read them and I remember times when we had drinking parties in the woods and would crazily playact the characters in the book. The fact that I wanted such a place as middle earth to be real shows me how much the books meant to me as an adolecsent. I have read them all again (as well as the Hobbit) many times as an adult but have lost touch with any peers that share my continued interest so it was very nice to hear of Mcfadden's passion for them and also his in depth knowledge. I skipped ahead to the chapter "When Gandalf Talks " as I was eager to hear if my favorite passage was there. There are so many gems within the narrative and one of them hit home during an audio book version I listened to some 20 years ago. It is the part where Frodo tells Gandalf that Gollum deserves to die only to hear Gandalf answer that "there are many that live that deserve death and many are dead that deserve life -can you give it them? Not even the wisest among us can see all ends. " As Mcfadden writes that passages in the books could indeed help form social and moral beliefs for individuals, the unexpected liberal mindedness of Gandalf 's answer to Frodo helped me to solidify my personal position on the death penalty. It truly was an ephiphany that I had missed in many readings prior. I am sure there is still more to learn and Mcfadden has brought out this desire for me. I am 53 years old now and I just read the Hobbit to my 7 year old son. I am now faced with the decision as whether to take him to see the movie (my wife will help of course!) as it may be too violent. Mcfadden's comparisons on the LOTR written works and films as well as his expectations on the upcoming Hobbit film are helpful in making a decision. Being a disciple of Neil Postman as well, I fear the impact of visual media on the written works. Mcfadden's offering helps counter any negative effects because it keeps an intelligent, critical, written dialog on-going with the subject. Still, it is my hope that my son and many other children will have the life lessons in the books to help guide them and the fantastic stories they contain to inspire them. Mcfadden's work is great. I am much indebted to him for rekindling my passion and providing me with a scholarly yet readable analysis that allows for a deeper connection to the books on a personal level.

Has this guy even READ Lord of the Rings?

Quote: "While the film shows Frodo and Sam leaving Hobbit on together, the truth is that Fatty Bolger left with them. A clean lift - no Fatty. But since Fatty doesn't go on the quest and plays a very small part in the story, one is left wondering why Tolkien didn't write it the way Jackson did."

Oh my god! Are you serious??? Fatty Bolger did NOT leave with Sam and Frodo, Pippin did!! And he played a critically important role in the quest.

And to suggest that there is ANYTHING that Tolkien did that should have been changed to what Jackson did is simply... abominable. I want a refund. This book sucks.
