Beyond Middle-earth: Tolkienís Smaller Works
Tolkienís major works of fiction, notably The Lord of the Rings, The
Hobbit, and The Silmarillion, have attracted a considerable body of scholarly
criticism. His smaller works of fiction, such as Farmer Giles of Ham, Smith of
Wootton Major, Leaf by Niggle, Mr Bliss, The Father Christmas
Letters, Roverandom, The Adventures of Tom Bombadil, or The
Homecoming of Beorhtnoth, have as yet not received an adequate treatment by the
critics. This is all the more deplorable since most of the texts mentioned are not only of
interest in connection with the interpretation of the longer works, but also show us hitherto
unknown facets of Tolkienís creativity. It is the aim of the 2007 DTG/WTP joint-conference
in Jena to explore some of these aspects and to redress the critical imbalance.
Please send an abstract (no longer than one page or 2500 characters) until 31 December 06
