RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 70174816 LA English T1 Ents, elves, and Eriador : the environmental vision of J.R.R. Tolkien A1 Dickerson, Matthew T.,, Evans, Jonathan D., PB University Press of Kentucky PP Lexington, Ky. YR 2006 SN 0813124182 9780813124186 AB "The burgeoning field of agrarianism provides new insights into Tolkien's view of the natural world and environmental responsibility. In Ents, Elves, and Eriador, Matthew Dickerson and Jonathan Evans show how Tolkien anticipated some of the tenets of modern environmentalism in the imagined world of Middle-earth and the races with which it is peopled." "Dickerson and Evans examine Tolkien's major works as well as his lesser-known stories and essays, comparing his writing to that of the most important naturalists of the past century. A vital contribution to environmental literature and an essential addition to Tolkien scholarship, Ents, Elves, and Eriador offers both Tolkien fans and environmentalists an understanding of Middle-earth that has profound implications for environmental stewardship in the present and the future of our own world."--Jacket.
