Though Tolkien’s novels were very successful in the last century, after the Peter Jackson trilogy in the early 2000s, their reach increased to encompass the globe. Irrespective of geographical or linguistic differences, they spoke to all of us in different ways. In this informal discussion group, you are welcome to just listen or to share your thoughts/reactions/ take on various aspects of Tolkien’s works, mainly his Legendarium. Whether you first came across his books or films, please feel free to tell us about what struck you most about them. Which aspects of various characters, value systems, races, cultural mores, mythical elements etc. did you relate to most? What reminded you of facets of your own traditions/legends/classical stories from your region? In what ways do you project familiar elements from your culture onto Tolkien’s works and vice versa? What is the glue that binds so many fans, readers, viewers, scholars together from all over the world?
