Please note that this course has started and enrolment is no longer possible.

No 20th-century author has been more influential than Tolkien, and The Lord of the Rings all but created modern fantasy. This course spends the first week looking at Tolkien's work and its adaptations, including Jackson's films, and the second week on later fantasies indebted to, or reacting against, Tolkien's example.
