Just want to express my appreciation that the re-publication of PE #14 was announced here (as well as on the usual Yahoo-groups), and that I was able to pre-order straight away, this time.

Also my thanks that the issue is reprinted in the first place. Now for the others - one down, three to go, in my case!

Without checking the full index for the exact issue of the article, if your citation is correct (Volume 15, Spring 1989) then you want Issue #57 (15:3), also $3.50 as a back issue.

John Rateliff responded:


Unfortunately, this issue of MYTHLORE falls among those I still have inaccessibly boxed away. But if this person is looking for a copy, he needs to be warned that this issue is NOT #15 but part of VOLUME 15. The issue he's looking for would be somewhere around #56.
I do have a copy of the dissertation, though in rather battered condition, and so could provide a copy of specific pages or passages if he can't find one for himself; I believe Marquette and probably Wheaton have copies as well. And since the dissertation was for a degree granted at the University of Southern California, there shd be a copy on file there as well.
At least one important excerpt from this dissertation has been published as an essay: "Gollum's Character Transformation in The Hobbit", which lays out the changes between the first and second editions of the Gollum-scene in parallel columns. It appears in Lobdell's A TOLKIEN COMPASS (both the original 1975 edition and the truncated 2003 re-issue).
--John R.


I do see Marquette has it listed in their archives. I can dig into the USC more if that will help. I will check my Mythlore Index tonight as well to see what issue the article appears in.

I will forward your request to the Mythsoc mailing list to see if anyone can help with the comparison. The back issue of Mythlore is available from the back issues website here:

http://www.mythsoc.org/mythlore/history/

That particular issue is $3.50 plus shipping. If you need help ordering (don't like Paypal or whatnot) let me know and I can help out.

Probably the same article appears in Orcrist #7 (1972-73). I don't have a copy of that issue of Orcrist right now, unfortunately. A citation refers to the Orcrist article as her dissertation "epitomized in" the Orcrist article, so it is probably rewritten for a wider audience. Sorry for the long link! (http://books.google.com/books?id=FCaM ... ve%20Technique%22&f=false)

Tangentially related, I found the following paper online that refers to the one you are looking for (good further reading maybe):
