Bodleian Libraries talk: Magical Tales: Wolves and Volumes

March 6, 2014 at 10:48 am by Demosthenes  - 

Bodleian Libraries As part of the 2014 Oxford Literary Festival, The Bodleian Libraries is hosting a talk by Carolyne Larrington and Diane Purkiss — authors of Magical Tales: Myth, Legend, and Enchantment in Children’s Books on March 26 at the Old Bodleian Library.

Hear how the medieval literature studied in Oxford by some of the world’s best-loved children’s authors — including J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis — inspired magical landscapes and mythic beings in their fiction. Magical Tales accompanied last year’s record-breaking Bodleian exhibition, Magical Books: From the Middle Ages to Middle Earth.

Carolyne Larrington is a supernumerary fellow and tutor in Medieval English at St John’s College, Oxford. Diane Purkiss is fellow and tutor in English at Keble College, Oxford.

Magical Tales: Wolves and Volumes
Speaker(s): Carolyne Larrington and Diane Purkiss
Date: March 26, 2014
Time: 10am to 11am
