The current volume, being the second of two dedicated to 'Tolkien and Modernity', grew out of the wish to further the exploration of Tolkien as a 'contemporary writer', i.e. an author whose literary creations can be seen as a response to the challenges of the modern world. It comprises papers that focus on four broad themes: love, time, heroism, and style. Although one could argue that these topics have been present since the beginning of literature, though sometimes temporarily submerged, it is with the cataclysm of World War I and the entry of Einstein's Theory of Relativity into the public consciousness - two events that shook the very foundations of pre-modern society - that they gained a new and immediate relevance.

Tolkien and Modernity 2 book. The current volume, being the second of two dedicated to 'Tolkien. In short: you do you, Honegger and friends. But I remain unconvinced that connections between the style of late Beethoven pieces and Tolkien's imagined textual historiography can tell me much about the meanings of either.

Talk about Tolkien and Modernity 2

The best essay here in Judith Klinger's "Hidden Paths of Time: March 13th and the Riddles of Shelob's Lair." When speaking of Sam's wish/plea/prayer to Galadriel that he be allowed to return to Frodo's side, Klinger says that Sam's enduring hope comes here in the form of his "ability to reinterpret ultimate separation as a hope for reunion." Instead of being an "empty fall into nothingness" as Sam thought death when tempted to suicide, "death is now envisioned as a `quiet rest' that Sam can eventually share with Frodo, and a reunion that affirms an irrevocable bond." I've not heard this expressed so beautifully before. Grace filled the younger hobbit in a different way than it did his master, and gave him the ability throughout the Quest, to have hope that is so alive that it can even see past death to life again. This is the hope that Aragorn tries to convey in his last words to his beloved Arwen. That Sam can see with the same eyes of faith and not even know his Creator is an astonishing gift from Ilúvatar. Klinger also points out that when Sam looks upon his beloved master by the light of the Phial, and is gifted with another vision in which he sees ahead, this time to after Frodo has left for the West. The Ring-bearer's face was "fair of hue again, pale but beautiful with an elvish beauty, as of one who has long passed the shadows." She also points out about the power of the Ring being "eclipsed" by the joyful reunion of Sam and Frodo in the Tower of Cirith Ungol. Very interesting. I also enjoyed Anna Slack's essay.
As another reviewer states, the essay by Judith Klinger is by far the best of the collection. It is well thought out and subtly crafted. I am not sure whether her conclusions are accurate but it does seem likely that Tolkien may have added the time warping dimension to Shelob's cave as he was particularly interested in the topic. I also really enjoyed the essay previous to this one by Anna Slack about the "slowly kindled courage." This is probably due to the linking of greek myth to the context of Tolkien's work (an area I have often thought about myself). Book 1 of this two part series is by far superior however this is worthwhile if you are looking for a broad scope of criticism towards Tolkien.
