Re: About dwarves and their connection with nordic myth ...
- To William Cloud Hicklin :
>> Could it be that you're right: these names in fact did inspire theGreat Pyre?
Thank's, it's perhaps after Mr John D Ratelif the only positive opinion
about this fact. I'm very sad to not write as goodly as I want to speak
about my point of view of my 'paradox' for the 'editorial concession'
conceded by Pr Tolkien about his dwarves and their possible relation
with Old norse ones. I'm afraid that I have to say that I'm not agree
with that fact commonly accepted by all the Tolkien Community ... there
are too much things to much details to much words that make me think
that Tolkien did really take a lot of things from Norse Dwarves (
perhaps even to Norse Cosmogology about them ) to speak about a
simple 'concession'. I want to go farther than Mr Shippey did realy
goood about them, farther than the lots of ones that speak only about
the Names occuring in Völuspá ...
To Jason :
>> so I'd be curious to hear more about your work off-list (as yousuggested it was too complicated for the list). Drop me a line if you'd
Check your MailBox Jason ;)
>> I'd actually be interested in this too, I'm preparing lecture noteson Tolkien's dwarves for a Tolkien class I'm teaching next semester.
I work also about other interrestings things about Tolkien's dwarves
like death/size/women/magical object (in fact in Letters Tolkien
says 'Magic is Art' and the dwarves are Aulë childrens ....). Did you
read french freely ?
I can tell you that your lecture notes can be very interresting to me
if you can send them to my mailbox ?

I'll be happy to send them along when I've finished them, pretty basic though. And yes, I read French.
