Ralph C. Wood on Tolkien and human language

by Anna Blanch on June 4, 2010

Today I want to share an interview with Professor Ralph C. Wood on how Tolkien viewed the use and meaning of human language. This is volume 49 of the free Mars Hill Audio bonus tracks ! Here is the full list of free interviews.

Professor Wood is Professor of Theology and Literature at Baylor University. He writes about Tolkien, Flannery O’Connor, P.D. James, G.K Chesterton and Walker Percy among others. You can read other articles by Dr Wood at his website.

If you are interested this is a good reason to join the Emerging Scholars Network, which is free, because Mars Hill Audio offers all ESN members a substantial discount on new subscriptions for one year (six issues) of the Mars Hill Audio Journal in either format: cassette for $33, CD for $35, or $25 in MP3 format. (That comes to $5 to $13 off their usual rates, by the way.) Non-US residents receive this discount but will need to pay an extra shipping cost. Even before you subscribe, you can order a free demo CD or cassette or listen to several bonus interviews for free in MP3 format.

Anna M Blanch is founder of Goannatree, and a PhD student in the Institute of Theology, Imagination, and the Arts at St Mary’s College, University of St Andrews, Scotland.
