Post Tolkien in 2020 . . . and whither then I cannot say
on: August 29, 2020 12:05
I live in a place surrounded by northern forests. I have places that remind of Lothlorien. And when I'm out there I can't help but be called by the legendspace Tolkien created. And what better place to be in these times than Middle Earth? Reconnect, people, with Middle Earth! Even if you're not near Lothlorien.

The Northern forests of old were a dangerous place, and still are if you get lost. Not so many wolves or bears these days. They feature in the old tales as ominous and threatening, as in Hansel and Gretel. Tolkien picks up on this with Mirkwood in The Hobbit and then later with the Old Forest and Fanghorn. No wolves or bears though. The delightful woodlands of Lothlórien are more akin to the later managed woodland, more open and bright with open glades and flowering plants. I would recommend 'Gossip From The Forest' by Sara Maitland, an exploration of the old tales which have their origins in the forest.

I would love to find the book, tarcolan, as long as it is nota horror based novel.
