Ausstellung Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth in Oxford

Recommended Posts

Die Bodleian Library in Oxford stellt vom 1. Juni bis zum 28. Oktober 18 in der Weston Library unter dem Titel Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth aus.


This exhibition will explore the full breadth of Tolkien's unique literary imagination from his creation of Middle-earth, the imagined world where The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit and his other works are set, to his life and work as an artist, poet, medievalist and scholar of languages.

For the first time since the 1950s, an unprecedented array of Tolkien materials from the UK and the USA will be reunited in Oxford and displayed together in this seminal exhibition. Tolkien: Maker of Middle-earth will feature manuscripts, artwork, maps, letters and artefacts from the Bodleian's foremost Tolkien Archive, the Tolkien Collection at Marquette University in the USA and from private collections. The exhibition will delight both Tolkien fans as well as scholars, families and visitors of all ages.


Das dürfte den ein oder anderen interessieren. Nur nach Oxford müsst man kommen :kratz::clapping:


Passend zu der Ausstellung und pünktlich zur Eröffnung soll auch ein Buch mit demselben Titel erscheinen. Darin sollen "Zeichnungen, Briefe und weiteres Material aus den Tolkienschen Archiven" veröffentlicht werden, die man vermutlich auch in der Ausstellung begutachten kann :-)
