Join Corey Olsen, the Tolkien Professor, on a four-week, eight-class journey through The Two Towers. In our discussions, we work our way through the book a few chapters at a time, paying special attention to the mythic elements in Tolkien’s story. The class is open to everyone, and recordings will be posted afterwards.
This non-credit class is a pilot course for the new Mythgard Academy courses, free courses organized and hosted by the Mythgard Institute. If this kind of class seems like a good idea, and if you would like to have a vote in deciding what other books we read and discuss together, consider supporting Mythgard’s Indiegogo campaign, currently underway. For more details, see http://igg.me/p/306784/x/2033961.

|24||The Two Towers||The second volume in J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure, THE LORD OF THE RINGS. Frodo and his Companions of the Ring have been beset by danger during their quest to prevent the Ruling Ring from falling into the hands of the Dark Lord by destroying it in the Cracks of Doom. They have lost the wizard, Gandalf, in a battle in the Mines of Moria. And Boromir, seduced by the power of the Ring, tried to seize it by force. While Frodo and Sam made their escape, the rest of the company was attacked by Orcs. Now they continue the journey alone down the great River Anduin—alone, that is, save for the mysterious creeping figure that follows wherever they go.||--||$9.99||View in iTunes|
