|Lift Bridge Book Shop in Brockport, NY is sponsoring a discussion session and book signing event with Elizabeth Whittingham. Elizabeth is the author of The Evolution Of Tolkien's Mythology: A Study of the History of Middle-earth, published late last year. The publisher states "this work provides a thorough study of Tolkien's life and influences through an analysis of The History of Middle-earth. The work begins with a brief biography and an analysis of the major influences in Tolkien's life. Following chapters deal with elements common to Tolkien's popular works, including the cosmogony, theogony, cosmology, metaphysics, and eschatology of Middle-earth. The study also reviews some of the myths with which Tolkien was most familiar--Greek, Roman, Finnish, and Norse--and reveals the often overlapping relationship between mythology, biblical stories, and Tolkien's popular works."
Elizabeth A. Whittingham teaches in the English department at SUNY College at Brockport in Brockport, New York.
