Announcing The Release Date Of "Anglo-Saxon Community In JRR Tolkien’s The Lord Of The Rings"
Oloris Publishing is very pleased to announce March 25, 2014 is the release date for "Anglo-Saxon Community in J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings" by Dr. Deborah A. Higgens.
Be sure to watch for the release announcement closer to March 25, 2014. At that time the cover of the book, which features artwork by Ted Nasmith, will be revealed.
Dr. Deborah A. Higgens is the Director of the C.S. Lewis Study Centre at “The Kilns,” former beloved home of C.S. Lewis, located in Oxford, England. Higgens earned a Ph.D. in medieval and Renaissance literature, an MA in Rhetoric and Composition, and a BA in English Education. She has been a professor of medieval and Renaissance literature. Higgens is passionate about the literature and culture of the Old English poets and archeological sites such as Sutton Hoo with its majestic Anglo-Saxon artifacts. She even enjoys the medieval sport of falconry.
“My passion found itself in books of history, poetry, and of all places, in Rohan. J.R.R. Tolkien, as professor of Anglo-Saxon, not only felt what I felt, but explained it in his articles and wove it into his own fairy story. It is my wish to take you along with me on my journey into a fascinating culture of Anglo-Saxon warriors, ladies, landscape, and mead halls and their reinvention in Théoden, Éowyn, Galadriel, Lothlórien, Meduseld, and Rohan. May the journey stir your souls as it has mine.” ~ Dr. Deborah A. Higgens
