A new book was recently published by Palgrave Macmillan and written by Dr Dimitra Fimi,”Race and Cultural History: From Fairies to Hobbits.” You can view the author’s website here.
The author sums it up for us:
“My book is a new analysis of Tolkien’s mythology, looking at his creative vision from the perspective of cultural history. My main research question was how Tolkien’s fiction fits with the cultural and historical milieu of the period he was writing. I wanted to examine Tolkien’s work not as a peculiar and idiosyncratic one-off in 20th-century fiction, but as an integral part of it.”
