      Matt,

      Joseph Pearce came to Fargo-Moorhead and spoke at North Dakota State
      University and at Shanley Catholic High School. He also met with the
      Fargo-Moorhead GK Chesterton Society for dinner and my wife and I had
      the pleasure of dining with him. He is currently a fellow in literature
      at Ave Maria University in Naples, FL, and is editor of the Saint Austin
      Review, which is a conservative Roman Catholic cultural and literary
      journal.

      Pearce refers to himself as a cultural apologist for the traditional
      idea of Christendom, which immediately places him at odds with a lot of
      scholars.

      As to his work on Tolkien, he probably doesn't have anything
      particularly new to say. He interprets Tolkien through the lens of
      conservative British Catholicism, as Tolkien himself practiced. He has
      also written about other British literary figures such as Chesterton,
      Lewis, and Hilaire Belloc. I believe he also wrote a biography on
      Solzhenitsyn. Pearce has a specific point of view: traditional
      Catholicism, and he is very open about it. On a personal level he is
      winsome and gentlemanly, and tolerated this Anglican's questions with
      patience and courtesy.

      He is a lively speaker. By all means, attend his lecture.

      Cheers,

      Jay Hershberger
      Moorhead, MN

      Yeah, I would definately go see him. He wrote =Tolkien: Man and Myth=
      which
      is a great book.
