Memory in Tolkien’s Medievalism I: @asthiggins on “World-Building and Memory in The Name-List to the ‘Fall of Gondolin’” @IMC_Leeds #IMC2018
@asthiggins: lists were important in #Tolkien’s early mythology, as in ancient and medieval epics and tales #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
@asthiggins: The Book of Lost Tales records philological debates which contest how origins of names are remembered in his Invented world #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
@asthiggins: Legolas features as an obscure character in the very early writings of #Tolkien, and in the name-list associated with The Fall of Gondolin. Legolas = green-leaf and keen-sight (different meanings in his two invented languages) #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
@asthiggins: the name list to The Fall of Gondolin becomes an archival memory of stories and characters - the first of many paratextual elements that #Tolkien would integrate in his Invented mythology #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
