It is one of the most widely read books of all time: Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings". His Trilogy is not only fantasy, but built out of mythological and historical material. The purpose of this course will be to look into some of the resources Tolkien used to establish Middle-earth with all its magnificent and fearful features. We will also try to find answers to the perennial questions of Wisdom, Fate and Destiny he raises.
