Summary
"The Lord of the Rings rarely makes an appearance in college courses that aim to examine British and American literature. This volume aims to situate Tolkien and The Lord of the Rings within the literary period whose sensibility grew out of the 19th-century rise of secularism and industrialism and culminated in the cataclysm of world war"--
