That C S Lewis relationship with his house mate Mrs Moore was sexual and romantic calling her his mistress Thankfully I had read Sayer s biography already and knew the arguments and evidence both for and against this hypothesis for it is an hypothesis and had already formed my own opinion based on the facts White asserts this fact in passing Having read no other biographies of Tolkien I have no idea how many similar facts about the Professor he WHOS WHO IN AFRICAN AMERICAN LITERATURE VOL.1 likewise assertsIf I may make a guess I would say that White has no real religious affiliation certainly he is not a Catholic and probably not an Anglican This occurs to me for two reasons He claims well he states it as if it is true that Tolkien s religious fervor found its origin in his childhood when he witnessed his widowed and newly converted Catholic mother become ostracized by her Anglican relations and inaws It is entirely possible that Tolkien s faith was greatly a reaction against this but I highly doubt that the man himself would have thought as much and although I have finished the book am still eft uite curious as to what he did think or whether his thoughts on the subject are even recordedThe second reason is that ater in the book when discussing the religious mileau of Tolkien s Middle earth recordedThe second reason is that Alphas Abused Mate later in the book when discussing the religious mileau of Tolkien s Middle earth says that the Professor imposed various aspects of his Christian faith into his pagan universe Again I ameft very suspicious as to whether or not Tolkien would agree with his biographer White make brief mention of Tolkien s theory of mythology and Christianity and faery tale at the inception of his biography but has apparently forgotten much of this subject by the time he reaches his analysis of the Lord of the Rings It sounds just as bizarre to me to say that Tolkien imposed aspects of Christianity upon his pagan world as it would be to say that Saint Paul imposed his experiences of Jesus Christ onto the writings found in the Old Testament Tolkien believed that the reality of the Triune God of Christianity shone through the pagan world just as much or at east nearly as much as it did through the Jewish world Whether or not folk believed in Him He still existed and exerted an influence albeit an influence cloaked and hidden in the poetic or philosophical anguage of the time So for elements of Christianity to be discernible in the in the poetic or philosophical Climate Smart Agriculture (Natural Resource Management and Policy Book 52) language of the time So for elements of Christianity to be discernible in the Christian world of Middle earth should be no surprise and certainly no imposition given the knowledge that Tolkien believed that elements of Christianity were indeed discernible in the pre Christian world of our EarthMoving on to the only part of this book that I enjoyed I will say that I actually enjoyed reading White write about the Lord of the Rings This book clearly came from a place of deep deepove and respect for the book It would seem that the publication of the Lord of the Rings is an actual miracle given all the trouble Tolkien had with publishers It is very easy to compare Tolkien with his cinematic counterpart George Lucas who Academic Body likewise is notoriously cantankerous and tinkered almost obsessively with his worksong after their releaseTolkien is an intensely interesting figure My interest is not Saint Germain On Alchemy lessened in the slightest given that I have cause to believe I would not enjoy spending time with him at all I think the next biography I read will another Tolkien I want to follow this rabbit hole as far as it goe.
