24095Tolkien and Musical Parody
- Feb 5 8:47 PMI'm currently pursing a doctorate in music and recently wrote a paper about Goethe and Schubert's relationship (or lack thereof) that dealt with, among other things, the subject of musical parody, e.g., writing a poem to the melodic form of another. I kept thinking how Tolkien did this as well, such as the "Old Troll" song going to the tune of "The Fox Went Out on a Chilly Night."
Can anyone point me to sources about Tolkien and musical parody? I know I've read at least a mention of this, but my Tolkien books are in Indianapolis and I am in Urbana.
