The Annotated Hobbit - hardcover

ISBN: 9780007137275

ID: 9780007137275

John R. R. Tolkien, geb. am 3. Januar 1892 in Südafrika, in England aufgewachsen, früh verwaist, hat mit seiner Romantrilogie `Der Herr der Ringe` das Genre `Fantasy` überhaupt erst geschaffen. Er zeigte sich schon als Kind fasziniert von alten, längst vergessenen Sprachen und Mythen. In Oxford spezialisierte sich der Stipendiat, der seit Kindertagen in seiner Freizeit zum bloßen Zeitvertreib Alphabete kreierte und neue Sprachen komponierte wie andere Menschen Musikstücke, bald aufs Altenglische und beschäftigte sich vor allem mit mittelalterlichen Dialekten der westlichen Midlands. W.A. Craigie, ein Kenner besonders der schottischen Volksüberlieferungen, führte ihn in die isländischen und finnischen Sprachen und Mythologien ein. Das Finnische wie das Walisische wurden später Grundlage für die Elfensprache im Herrn der Ringe. 1924, gerade 32 Jahre alt, wurde Tolkien als Professor für englische Sprachen nach Oxford berufen und blieb mehr als vierzig Jahre. Mit Frau und Kindern lebte er in einem schmucklosen Reihenhaus am Rande der Stadt. Tolkien ist 1973 gestorben, sein Fantasy-Land `Mittelerde` ist, obwohl literarisch inzwischen vielfach abgekupfert, der beliebteste literarische Abenteuerspielplatz für Kinder und Erwachsene geblieben.

The Annotated Hobbit: Hardback: HarperCollins Publishers Ltd: 9780007137275: 07 Apr 2003: The definitive edition of this beloved children's classic, featuring a wealth of accompanying illustrations and notes which take the reader further into both the story, and the tale of how it was written. The definitive edition of this beloved children's classic, featuring a wealth of accompanying illustrations and notes which take the reader further into both the story, and the tale of how it was written. Seldom has any book been so widely read and loved as J.R.R. Tolkien's classic tale, The Hobbit. Since its first publication in 1937 it has remained in print to delight each new generation of readers all over the world, and its hero, Bilbo Baggins, has taken his place among the ranks of the immortals: Alice, Pooh, Toad. As with all classics, repeated readings continue to bring new detail and perspectives to the reader's mind, and Tolkien's Middle-earth is a vast mine of treasures and knowledge, its roots delving deep into folklore, mythology and language. The Hobbit is, therefore, an ideal book for annotation: as well as offering a marvellous and entrancing story, it introduces the reader to the richly imagined world of Middle-earth, a world more fully and complexly realised in The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion. Douglas Anderson's annotations make fascinating reading. Additionally, many of Tolkien's own illustrations embellish the text, and numerous illustrations from foreign editions exhibit an extraordinary range of visual interpretation. In an appendix there are details of the revisions made by Tolkien at various times to the publsihed text, which provide an uncommon and privileged glimpse into the special concerns of an exceptional and painstaking writer.

The Annotated Hobbit - used book

ISBN: 9780007137275

ID: 11823165

For readers throughout the world, The Hobbit serves as an introduction to the enchanting world of Middle-earth, home of elves, wizards, dwarves, goblins, dragons, orcs and a host of other creatures depicted in The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion -- tales that sprang from the mind of the most beloved author of all time, J.R.R. Tolkien. Newly expanded and completely redesigned, Douglas A. Anderson's The Annotated Hobbit is the definitive explication of the sources, characters, places, and things of J.R.R. Tolkien's timeless classic. Integrated with Anderson's notes and placed alongside the fully restored and corrected text of the original story are more than 150 illustrations showing visual interpretations of The Hobbit specific to many of the cultures that have come to know and love Tolkien's Middle-earth. Tolkien's original line drawings, maps and color paintings are also included, making this the most lavishly informative edition of The Hobbit available. The Annotated Hobbit shows how Tolkien worked as a writer, what his influences and interests were, and how these relate to the invented world of Middle-earth. It gives a valuable overview of Tolkien's life and the publishing history of The Hobbit, and explains how every feature of The Hobbit fits within the rest of Tolkien's invented world. Here we learn how Gollum's character was revised to accommodate the true nature of the One Ring, and we can read the full text of The Quest of Erebor, Gandalf's explanation of how he came to send Bilbo Baggins on his journey with the dwarves. Anderson also makes meaningful and often surprising connections to our own world and literary history -- from Beowulf to The Marvellous Land of Snergs, from the Brothers Grimm to C. S. Lewis.
