Carol Brown Lecture Series: Michael D.C. Drout
Oct 3, 2013
The Carol Brown Lecture Series, sponsored by the English Department, presents Michael D.C. Drout (DC'90), professor of English and director of the Center for the Study of the Medieval at Wheaton College. In Drout's talk, titled "How To Read J.R.R. Tolkien," he'll discuss how many readers read The Lord of the Rings multiple times because they say it's more of an experience than just reading a book. He'll explain this effect and another, equally surprising feature of Tolkien┐s work: that he is able to create the impression that certain elements of his texts are genuinely old.
