but for now I'd say that the 'Moberly–Jourdain incident' had about as much 'influence' on Tolkien's works as did the Cottingley fairies, which is to say, none at all


I bought this point up with Dimtri Fima at Oxenmoot this year, garm was there as well, and she completely agrees.

Garm, I too have that Fleiger Hb sitting on the 'to read' shelf; it's been there for quite a while now, along with Tolkien Studies 2009 (I haven't even bought TS 2010 yet!). Tolkien criticism just leaves me totally bored at present; sorry...

I have a copy; though I'm afraid it's still on my 'to read' list. However, taking it down from the shelf, I see that Flieger mentions that an account of the incident was published in 1911, and that Tolkien 'could have' been aware of it. Flieger uses the phrase 'could have' twice in a very short space of time, in a quite densely-packed passage.

I'm afraid I don't have the time at present to do the Professor's argument justice, but for now I'd say that the 'Moberly–Jourdain incident' had about as much 'influence' on Tolkien's works as did the Cottingley fairies, which is to say, none at all.

Though I could be wrong.

I'd hope that most bookshop owners do not get customers like this.
