    The Tolkien Reader MOBI Û The Tolkien Epub / tolkien epub, reader kindle, The Tolkien book, The Tolkien Reader PDFExcellent compilation of some of Tolkien's shorter works Farmer Giles of Ham is a funny adventure story The Adventures of Tom Bombadil is a collection of funny epic nonsense and sad poems only two of which are actually about Tom Bombadil Leaf by Niggle is my all time favorite short story of Tolkien's He's kind of poking fun at himself working so hard on his legendarium that he gets grumpy when other duties get in the way but in the end he learns what is important Niggle also learns that being creative is valued by God This ties in directly to Tolkien's main point in his essay On Fairy Stories He argued that fantasy is its own art form and shouldn't be relegated to children's stories Instead creating fantasy worlds is a reflection of our creator He says Fantasy r

    The Tolkien Reader MOBI Û The Tolkien Epub / tolkien epub, reader kindle, The Tolkien book, The Tolkien Reader PDFThis is a great read adding a lot to one's knowledge of Tolkien The three best pieces in the book are On Fairy Stories Leaf by Niggle and Farmer Giles of HamOn Fairy Stories deals with two important themes subcreation and eucatastropheSubcreation is the act of world building in which all creators of stories participate It’s not creation The primary world the physical and spiritual world in which we live was created by God The world in which the events of our stories take place is not the primary world but a secondary world that has been subcreated by an author The author stands in relation to his subcreated world as God stands to the primary world There is of course one big difference characters in the primary world have free will whereas characters in the secondary world do not Even here you can be nit picky Every author will attest that sometimes characters take on lives of their own and assert a kind of freedom over events in the secondary

    The Tolkien Reader MOBI Û The Tolkien Epub / tolkien epub, reader kindle, The Tolkien book, The Tolkien Reader PDFThis collection is a must read for fans of all forms of fantasy His essay On Fairy Tales is worth reading at least twice If reading On Fairy tales for the first time I suggest you try to avoid reading the footnotes They're interesting but they knock you out of Tolkien's thought train Then read it again preferrably immediately For while Tolkie
