課程概述 Course Description

Tolkien and Lewis are familiar to modern audiences who have read their works of popular fiction or seen the recent movie versions. Tolkien and Lewis are also significant scholars of medieval literature and their work as scholars informs their work as storytellers. The popular novels, in turn provide a gateway to studying some of the topics in medieval literature that absorbed the two scholars. This course will examine major scholarship and fictional works by these authors to enable us to understand the theories and ideas they expressed through books that are still engaging readers and influencing popular culture.
