Middle-earth's Manuscript Sources and Tolkien's Narrative Persona: A Reading of Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings from within the Middle-earth Frame.

Held in the new UGST Chapel

Refreshments Following




As a scholar, Tolkien spent a great deal of time working from manuscripts. He knew that what ancient texts lose when measured by modern notions of historical reliability, they gain in terms of historical transcendence and meaning. Likewise, as a storyteller, in The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien creates a narrative persona who bases his story on his compilation and translation of ancient and possibly unreliable, manuscripts. This persona operates within his story's narrative frame as an analogue for Tolkien's own work with manuscripts. Just as Tolkien inserts himself, in the form of his narrative persona, into the framework of Middle-earth, so also is the reader invited to read The Lord of the Rings from within this same framework. Tolkien created a fictional world rich enough to provide a place within which to read his story, and text with enough "historical" depth to be read as an artifact of history.


In this lecture, Jeremy Painter will attempt to demonstrate that Tolkien fictionalizes and dramatizes the kinds of phenomena around which a modern compiler of medieval manuscripts and stories has to work: fragmented manuscripts, lacunae, dittography, palimpsests, and variable texts—Tolkien has successfully distressed his story in such a way that it has gained the atmosphere of an ageing legend culled from three major sources.
