Tolkien Referenzen

Zu meiner Sammelleidenschaft gehört unter anderem auch das Zusammentragen von Zitaten und Anspielungen auf J.R.R. Tolkien, sein Werk und dessen Adaptionen in anderen fiktionalen Werken. Früher konnte ich das im Forum der Deutschen Tolkien Gesellschaft voll ausleben. Leider wurde das geschlossen, also übertrage ich nach und nach meine gesammelten Schätze auf diese Seite. Ich wollte ja schon immer mal einen Artikel über Intertextualität schreiben …

A couple of Edwardian earthwork suveys, The Old Straight Track by Alfred Watkins and The Real Middle Earth: Magic and Mystery in the Dark Ages, which confirmed that Martin Chorley was an enormous Tolkien nerd. As if the five or six different editions of The Lord of the Rings and the signed first edition of The Hobbit wasn’t proof enough.

The Hanging Tree. London: Gollancz, 2016. S. 299

Back in 1929 a pair of likely lads made the first of many attempts to drag the English out of their cosy brick hobbit holes and ascend into the future borne aloft on gleaming cubes of white rendered concrete.

The Furthest Station. London: Gollancz, 2017. S. 35
