Tolkien ou la féérie du verbe

 

JRR Tolkien, ou la féérie du verbe
une heure de documentaire dans lémission Une vie Une oeuvre
http://www.franceculture.fr/emission-une-vie-une-oeuvre

« Pour ce philologue médiéviste enseignant à Oxford la linguistique et les langues nordiques, créer un univers monumental ne suffisait pas : il fallait aussi lui inventer une géographie toute entière, construire des langues imaginaires.. »

« Si les trilogies cinématographiques ne peuvent rendre toute la complexité de l'oeuvre de Tolkien dans sa portée esthétique, philosophique, initiatique et spirituelle, elles ont eu le mérite de relancer des millions de lecteurs dans son imaginaire poétique, sur les sentiers des elfes et les routes perdues des hobbits, sur les pistes des géants de pierre menacés par les orques, les dragons et les vieilles forêts, pour remonter aux sources de la légende du "Pays Faërie" »

Pour Tolkien (Vincent Ferré, Paris XIII) - http://www.pourtolkien.fr/
