Gaëlle Abaléa on “The Smith, the Weaver and the Librarian: Sub-Creating Memory in #Tolkien’s work” @IMC_Leeds #IMC2018
Abaléa: the figure of the weaver reoccurs in #Tolkien’s mythology - linked with mythological figures such as the Norse Norns. #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
Abaléa: weaving is significant among the Valar, linked with sub-creating the fabric of time in the early versions of the legendarium #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
Abaléa: Ungoliant and Shelob as anti-weavers or “dark”-weavers - literally creating darkness and sucking in light and memory #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
Abaléa: Aule and Feanor as a prime examples of the figure of the Smith in the legendarium. The incident at the Barrow-Downs also as an example of armour-giving linked to memory. The weapons obtained there seem to carry the memory of past conflicts with them #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
Abaléa: The Elves too attached to memory and to preserving the past. But not preserving leads to misremembering - see Athrabeth Finrod ah Andreth
