Tolkien Scholar Segura to speak at Raynor Library

September 26, 2006 at 8:12 am by xoanon  - 

The Raynor Memorial Libraries’ Department of Special Collections and Archives will host a lecture by Tolkien scholar Eduardo Segura, Professor of Aesthetics, Philosophy of Language, and Literature at the Institutio De Filosofia Edith Sten (Granada, Spain) today at 3:00 p.m. in the Raynor Library, 1355 W. Wisconsin Avenue, Milwaukee. Professor Segura’s presentation, “Tolkien, Lewis, and Hollywood: What Images Cannot Say,” will center on differences between literature and cinema as artistic means, particularly from J.R.R. Tolkien’s and C.S. Lewis’ outlook. Dr. Segura will discuss Tolkien’s passion for inventing languages, and the immense difficulty of communicating metaphorical meaning on film—even those brilliant scenes that Hollywood has recently released. A question and answer session will follow. [More]
