J. Patrick Pazdziora on “‘I will give you a name’: Sentient Objects in Tolkien’s Fiction”. #s311 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds #Tolkien
Pazdziora: Kullervo is, in reality, “old” #Tolkien - pre-war, pre-Middle-earth. The paper will focus on animism, esp. Kullervo’s talking sword. #s311 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds #Tolkien
Pazdziora: the speaking sword is the most tangible link between Kullervo and Narn-i-chin-Húrin - but it doesn’t occur in the Kalevala. #s311 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds #Tolkien
Pazdziora: Tailbiter in Farmer Giles of Ham is also described in anthropomorphic terms and has agency. Bilbo’s Sting seems to also have this sort of agency and a name. #s311 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds #Tolkien
Pazdziora: where does that leave us in terms of the agency of the One Ring? The “luxuriant animism” of Kullervo remained as a subtle element in Middle-earth. #s311 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds #Tolkien
