Interdisciplinary in approach, Tolkien the Medievalist provides a fresh perspective on J. R. R. Tolkien's Medievalism. In fifteen essays, eminent scholars and new voices explore how Professor Tolkien responded to a modern age of crisis - historical, academic and personal - by adapting his scholarship on medieval literature to his own personal voice. The four sections reveal the author influenced by his profession, religious faith and important issues of the time; by his relationships with other medievalists; by the medieval sources that he read and taught, and by his own medieval mythologizing.

‘The..essays...[are] remarkable for their originality and thoroughness and are important contributions to the study of Tolkien’s rhetorical artistry... [the] result is a handsomely and carefully edited book that is worth reading and―in my case―re-reading.’ – Thomas Honegger, Friedrich-Schiller-University
