"Both provocative and stimulating... provides a rewarding exploration of that web of relationships which defines Middle-earth". (Robert A. Collins, Florida Atlantic University)
"The author has taken a complex and convoluted masterpiece and dissected it in a clear and concise style. Fans of Tolkien's classic will welcome it". (School Library Journal)

Written during the rise of Nazi Germany and the subsequent world war, J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings chronicles the war against a Dark Lord whose mission is the domination of Middle-earth. Revised and significantly expanded for a new generation of Tolkien readers, Jane Chance's classic guide to the Lord of the Rings series explores its "mythology of power" by placing the epic within the twentieth-century context of Tolkien's life and times. By examining the interrelationships among themes of power, language, and politics, Chance argues that the popularity of the trilogy stems from its celebration of the individual differences of the marginalized and disenfranchised, typified in the insignificant figure of the hobbit as Everyman.

Jane Chance is Professor of English at Rice University. She has published fifteen books on medieval mythography, Anglo-Saxon, and Middle English literature. Four of these focus on Tolkien, including Tolkien's Art: A Mythology for England, the companion volume to this book.
