The University Press of Kentucky - About the Book
Rating: 1. Tokens work. I am a fan of the Lord of the rings and the Hobbit, because of it I enjoyed this book because it talks about the author and how he came up with the ideas for the world of middle earth. Jul 04, Tony Rublaitus rated it did not like it.
As an avid LOtR fan, I was disappointed with this book. To its credit, it was carefully and thoroughly written and I learned a lot about Tolkien himself.
However, this was a dense and dull read to get through as I counted down pages until the end. Dec 09, Christine rated it it was ok Shelves: literary-criticism-biography , tolkien , women-writers.

My problem with this book is that while Chance has some very good points like power structure , she tends to leave out details that can undermine her points for instance, in her description of Biblo's birthday. I also do not understand how she reaches some of her conclusions. She writes how Boromir is racially aganist the Hobbits, but her only support is when Boromir yells at Frodo, a scene where you can say he was influenced by the Ring.

Paganism: Part III - The One Ring
Trivia About The Lord of the R Here they used cold limestone spring water to make bourbon and found that corn produced even better yields of whiskey than rye. Thus, the licit and illicit branches of the distilling industry grew up side by side in the state.
This is the story of the illicit side -- the moonshiners' craft and craftsmanship, as practiced in Kentucky. A glossary of moonshiner argot sheds light on such colorful terms as "puker," "slop," and "weed-monkey. Jane Chance's works are fairly often cited in Tolkien scholarship. Having gotten bogged down in Tolkien's Art: A Mythology for England, I wasn't sure what to think -- she had important ideas but I read this in and loved it at the time but find that the political symbolism described would have caused the eye of sauron to blink.
