The Story of The Hobbit

Journey there and back again with The Tolkien Professor in his Spring 2013 course.

This course will examine the life of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit. We will examine several important precursors of the book, works that helped establish the genre in which Tolkien was writing, or which influenced Tolkien’s own thinking. Dr. Corey Olsen will be joined in this class by distinguished guest lecturers – John D. Rateliff and Douglas A. Anderson and will also explore the film adaptations, including a bonus lecture of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
