Style and Re-vision in Tolkien

While Edmund Wilson lampooned Tolkien's style, even more sympathetic critics
such as Burton Raffel have argued that Tolkien's style is not sufficiently
literary ,while some dismiss his writing as artless. More recently, Tom
Shippey has argued that the hybrid styles of The Lord of the Rings are
purposefully chosen for aesthetic effects. With the publication of the
History of Middle-earth, we can study the development of Tolkien's style and
analyze his writing process, both of which changed dramatically over time
and among literary works.

READERS, READING AND RECEPTION IN DEVOTIONAL LITERATURE AND PRACTICE
(Essay Collection)
 
We are currently soliciting proposals for essay-length studies about
readers, reading, and reception in devotional literature and practice,
with particular interest in England in the later Middle Ages. This
collection of essays draws on current scholarly interest in medieval
readers, reading, and reception that extends across such disciplinary
bounds as art history, architecture, social history, and literature
studies. We seek proposals for papers that investigate a wide variety
of approaches to and examples of devotional readers, reading or
reception in the later Middle Ages.
