#Tolkien: Medieval Roots and Modern Branches, I: first up, Andrzej Wicher on “Some Boethian Themes as Tools of Characterization in J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings” #s749 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
Wicher links Théoden’s lethargy with the amnesia/lethargy that Lady Philosophy can heal in Boethius #s749 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
Wicher: Gandalf and Galadriel as two sides of one character, both with androgynous characteristics #s749 #imc2018 @IMC_Leeds
Wicher: views on Boethius as implementing a “neutralised Christianity” - comparison with #Tolkien’s Christian-inspired yet non-overtly-Christian mythology. #s749 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
Wicher: Lady Philosophy bridges a number of binaries: male/female, young/old - compare these two descriptions of Lady Philosophy and Galadriel #s749 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
Wicher: can we read both the Consolation of Philosophy and The #LordoftheRings as Menippean satires? Both condemn the obsession with material possessions and power. #s749 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
Wicher: Boethius’s retelling of the Orpheus myth has resonances with The #LordoftheRings: esp. the image of Orpheus followed by walking trees. #s749 #IMC2018 @IMC_Leeds
