Gergely Nagy on “#Tolkien Remembering Tolkien: Textual Memory in the 1977 Silmarillion” #s227 #imc2018 @IMC_Leeds
Nagy: the 1977 Silmarillion as a “textual field” - it was accused of reducing the multiplicity of the variants that #Tolkien created. #s227 #imc2018 @IMC_Leeds
Nagy: the making of the Silmarils - the diction around Feanor’s actions changed subtly throughout the different versions. Christopher Tolkien seems to have been attuned to the sounds of language when choosing between versions. #s227 #imc2018 @IMC_Leeds
Nagy: Christopher Tolkien (externally) and Bilbo (internally) as editors - the published Silmarillion is a work of editorial processes #Tolkien #s227 #imc2018 @IMC_Leeds
Nagy: how much is Bilbo imagined to have acted as a unified of textual variants? #Silmarillion #s227 #imc2018 @IMC_Leeds
Nagy proposes the term “secondary philology” for this process in the fictional level - Bilbo as translator/editor/compiler/negotiator of the 1977 Silmarillion. #Tolkien sees history and culture as a series of textual transformations. #s277 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
