Lecture on what’s missing from ‘Rings’

January 17, 2005 at 9:16 pm by xoanon  - 

Michael Drout, a professor at Wheaton College in Norton, will deliver a lecture Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. at the Duxbury Library on “The Lord of the Rings: What the Films Left Out.” A professor of Anglo-Saxon literature, Drout is considered an authority on J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy trilogy, “The Lord of the Rings.” He has spoken twice before at the Duxbury Library on the connections between Tolkien’s fantasy series and the literature of the early Middle Ages. Wednesday’s talk will focus on elements of Tolkien’s epic that the filmmakers could not fit into the three recent films on the “Rings” trilogy. Drout said those missing aspects of the books are important to understanding the fictional world of Middle Earth. [More]
