Tolkien and the Notion of Fate
MetadataShow full item record
A lot of research has already been carried out about John Ronald Reuel Tolkien's life and about how Tolkien's works can be connected to mythological and biblical stories. However, to date no studies exist that focus on the notion of fate in Tolkien's works. The main focus of this thesis will be on what kind of fate or 'wyrd' (OE) is prevailing in Tolkien's works and how Tolkien uses different types of fate.
