Bon, #VendrediLecture et #Vendredi13 oblige, je me sens en veine d'écrire un [THREAD] sur un livre qui a marqué mon adolescence.
#LordOfTheRings aka #LeSeigneurDesAnneaux en VF.
Je compte cependant attaquer la chose sous l'angle militaire. Stratégie, opératique et tactique.
Alors quelques mentions préliminaires.
1) Qu'est-ce qui me qualifie pour m'attaquer au sujet?
Une maîtrise en histoire contemporaine des représentations, 25 ans de geekerie assumée et 10 ans de carrière militaire se doublant de 35 piges d'intérêt pour la res militaris.
2) Pourquoi maintenant?
- Parce que je suis ET flemmard ET très occupé.
- Parce que je veux me faire inviter chez @alexjubelin sur le #Collimateur @IRSEM1
- Parce que je peux enfin souffler et écrire un peu.

We have lost the greatest mind in the dynamic world of #Tolkien Scholarship. Like his Father he was an intellectual giant who poured his entire life into those monumental works.

Never was the adage more true: He was a GENTLEMAN and a SCHOLAR.

A memory.
Born in Leeds in late 1924 - he studied at the Dragon 🐉 School at an early age, connecting him later to his Father’s beloved Oxford. He served in the Royal Air Force; continuing a family legacy of military service. He is pictured twice here as the littlest one on the right.

What an experience for him! Listening to his Dad spin marvelous stories of Bilbo, Thorin and Gandalf! 🧙🏼‍♂️

His teenage years enriched by giving feedback during the lengthy 15-16 years of writing #LOTR.

Can you imagine BEING THERE at his Father’s desk for that?! #GeekHeaven

[BREAKING] We have confirmed from multiple sources that @AmazonStudios new billion-dollar #LOTR series will open its first season centered on a young Aragorn.

Let's discuss whats available and how this opens up Tolkien's Legendarium. A thread. #Tolkien
Firstly, we must stamp out any remaining confusion:

From the first press release, we know this so-called #LOTR series will NOT be a retelling of the events of the War of the Ring. #BeenThereDoneThat

Instead it will be Appendices based and cover a lot of time and history. /2
This is the greatest advantage the show runners have: that so much of Tolkien’s storytelling, even just in “Appendix A,” covers a tremendous swath of time.

Starting with a young Aragorn narrative allows connections to his Numenorean bloodline (and to the founding of #Gondor). /3
