Mae g'ovannen (Well met) my Middle Earth brothers and sisters!
I am grateful for these two Tolkien scholars and the content of this site and their podcasts.
I wanted to share a couple scholars of Tolkien’s work that I have found very educational.
Dr Louis Markos is a professor in English and Scholar in Residence at Houston Baptist University and has published more than 18 books including On the Shoulders of Hobbits: The Road to Virtue with Tolkien and Lewis and from A to Z to Middl-earth with J.R.R. Tolkien to name just a few. His writings are deep insights into the writings of Tolkie.n. Jonathan S McIntosh has written a magisterial tome “The. Flame Imperishabl:e: Tolkien, St Thomas and the Metaphysics of Faerie”. He opens deeper insight into the Ainulindale and plumbs the depth of Tolkien’s legendarium.
I know we all read extensive and the last thing we need is more books to expend our time and mental energy on. I just wanted to pass on a couple authors that have studied and written deeply on Tolkien's writing.s.
