Description

Christopher Tolkien's professional work as a medievalist has been overshadowed by his editing of his famous father's writings. But his work on Old Norse (with the Viking Society for Northern Research, and his edition of Hervarar Saga) and on Middle English (including three editions of Chaucer texts, coedited with Nevill Coghill), as well as teaching duties as a Fellow of New College, Oxford, gave him essential insight that would later be the basis for the editing of his father's posthumous publications, including scholarship and translations as well as imaginative literature. This session will explore Christopher Tolkien's medieval work.
