    ePUB Finn and Hengest eBook Ü Finn and Epub / Ü franzbielmeier.de Ü finn epub, hengest ebok, Finn and book, Finn and Hengest EpubDon't pick up Finn and Hengest expecting a story not even in the same sense as Tolkien's The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun It's mostly a collection of notes and lectures edited for coherence in which Tolkien pulled out the threads of what we know of Finn and Hengest from the fragments we have of poems referencing them and tried to reconstruct the historical events be

    ePUB Finn and Hengest eBook Ü Finn and Epub / Ü franzbielmeier.de Ü finn epub, hengest ebok, Finn and book, Finn and Hengest EpubOld English masterclassCurated and introduced by Alan Bliss the book is a thorough display of JRRT literary and historical forensic abilities Far from the creative and inventive author of Middle Earth professor Tolkien dons here the role of the college researcher and digs deep in the verses of the cryptic episode in Beowulf and the Finnesburg fragment to philologically reconstruct a forgotten page in English history in an amazing lecture It would be better for the reader to brush up any Old English knowledge shehe may have or at the least read Tolkien’s Beowulf translation before starting this book this read need scholar preparation

    ePUB Finn and Hengest eBook Ü Finn and Epub / Ü franzbielmeier.de Ü finn epub, hengest ebok, Finn and book, Finn and Hengest EpubThis book shows probably than any other that Tolkien wrote what a master in Linguistics he was Truely a testament to his intellect The astaunding amount of conclusions and information he can gather from a pair of texts that is in total not even 5 pages long just blows my mind This book is probably not suited for anyone who is looking for another LoTR from The Man himself Also my greatest respects to Mr Bliss Who whould have toyed with the idea that he could come so far from fixing broke

    ePUB Finn and Hengest eBook Ü Finn and Epub / Ü franzbielmeier.de Ü finn epub, hengest ebok, Finn and book, Finn and Hengest EpubDense and difficult this is an example of how far truly gifted and careful scholars—Tolkien is only the most famous—can go with fragments as small as these two A fascinating tour through speculation and some of the clearest examples in of all Tolkien to see him employing the detective capabilities of philologyBest read as an aside from the study of Beowulf rather than on its own

    ePUB Finn and Hengest eBook Ü Finn and Epub / Ü franzbielmeier.de Ü finn epub, hengest ebok, Finn and book, Finn and Hengest EpubThere are things in this book that WILL fly over your head unless you happen to be some sort of scholar in Old English It is also very much a scholarly essay not a narrative and will reference sources that you are unfamiliar with assume you can read and understand Old English and try your patience with subject matter that may reuire some GooglingEven if you have none of the skills above there is still much to be gained from this book With enough patience and a willingness to ignore the snatches that are unintelligible to all us rubes what we get is a discernible look into scholarship concerning an obscure episode in history notable mostly for it's connection to the epic poem Beowulf Tolkien's logic and opinions are fascinating and you will learn much about Anglo Saxon culture from a man who loved it And now we know a little about what that long aside in Heorot was all about

    ePUB Finn and Hengest eBook Ü Finn and Epub / Ü franzbielmeier.de Ü finn epub, hengest ebok, Finn and book, Finn and Hengest EpubHow did I skip reviewing this last year? Perhaps because my brain hurt so bad after reading it Essentially a raw dump of unpublished lecture notes the very poor editing a generous soul might prefer conservative to poor makes this a needlessly convoluted read However the scholarship presented in this little book is fantastic and is well worth the Herculean effort of will reuired to actually read it closelyRecommended for those with a deep interest in Beowulf or proto Anglo Saxon history
