16939RE: [mythsoc] Tolkien Criticism
- Sep 6, 2006Ashleigh,
I have a few other suggestions to add to the mix. This is a good review
article of criticism after 1982 by Michael Drout and Hilary Wynne:
For earlier criticism, you should consult Richard West's Tolkien
Criticism: An Annotated Checklist from Kent State UP (rev. ed. 1981).
Does your library have Proquest Dissertations (the online DAI)? You can
use that to see how many dissertations have been done on Tolkien.

Subject: [mythsoc] Tolkien Criticism
Long-time lurker, first-time poster...
I'm currently working on a research proposal for my PhD thesis
(looking at the relationship between 'reality' and 'fantasy' in
popular epic fantasy). I want to give some indication of the extent
of 'Tolkien studies', something along the lines of "In 2005, there
were at least xx books and xx journal articles published on
Tolkien...". Even better would be if I could specify how much of that
was just on 'The Lord of the Ring'. Does anyone have any suggestions
as to where I could find these types of statistics?
