Extraordinarily Explicit Heart-earth Q&A with The Tolkien Professor–Corey Olsen

Sep 4, 2018

Partially two of my interview with Corey “The Tolkien Professor”
Olsen, we speak about a number of extraordinarily explicit questions on
Heart-earth, together with: What’s “magic” in The Lord of the
? Whogiddy-what is Tom Bombadil precisely? Do the great
penalties of Eowyn’s disobedience to Theoden justify her
movements? Are orcs—possessing loose will however apparently evil by means of
nature—metaphysically coherent?

2:06 The paradox of “magic” as utilized by other beings and
races in The Lord of the Rings

12:13 Is Tom Bombadil God or a Christ-figure? What does it imply
that “he’s,” and that he’s “the Grasp”? Is Tom a Maia? West vs.
east and resurrection within the barrow-wight episode

35:04 Does Eowyn’s achievement of prophecy in slaying the
Witch-King justify her abandonment of her tasks to stick in the back of and
rule/give protection to her other folks within the King’s absence? Simplistic feminist
misinterpretations of Eowyn; Rohan’s vs. Gondor’s cultural

44:26 Eowyn’s depression vs. Sam’s; other types of hope; Sam’s
perspective in opposition to his responsibility and the sense during which he lacks hope

59:38 Extra on Eowyn, Rohan’s debased cultural values

1:07:02 How Tolkien advanced in his idea of flat vs. spherical

1:09:17 Are orcs evil by means of nature? How can that be if they have got
loose will?

1:15:22 What’s the foundation of the
variations/superiorities/inferiorities a number of the races of
Heart-earth, and the way is it other from real-world racist
