In a follow up to the tremendously successful Lord of the Rings course, this class--hosted by Dr Becca S Tarnas--guides the reader through Tolkien’s sweeping saga of the First and Second Ages of Arda. The expansive vision and grand language can make The Silmarillion a more challenging read than The Lord of the Rings, so this course is designed to unpack the philosophical, spiritual, and literary meanings within Tolkien’s text.
