Kristine Larsen: “‘Forgot even the stones’: Stone Monuments and Imperfect Cultural and Personal Memories in The Lord of the Rings” #s227 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds #Tolkien
Larsen: (forgetting) family history in the #LordoftheRings: the hobbits mistake the Trolls as real, while Aragorn remembers the story of their petrification from Bilbo #s227 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds #Tolkien
Larsen: forgetting (“other”) cultural history: the Púkel-men at Dunharrow - the head of the Gondorian king on the way to Mordor. #s227 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
Larsen: the symbolism of the stone monument is significant throughout the #LordoftheRings. #s227 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
Larsen: for #Tolkien the lack of cultural memory leads to superstition and fear: e.g. the stone of Erech. Also, the Argonath invoke fear and dread to those not in possession of cultural memory (e.g. the hobbits). #s227 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
