Dr. O'Connor: Tolkien and Nostalgia: Baxter Hall 101, 8:00PM - 9:00PM
The Catholic Newman Center and the Philosophy Department present a lecture by Dr. David O'Connor, Professor of Classics and Philosophy at Notre Dame: "J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings has sometimes been belittled by literary critics as an exercise in nostalgia, a pointless and backward-looking rejection of the modern world. There is a grain of truth in this criticism: Tolkien rejected, not just the modern world, but worldliness. His moral vision comes into focus when we consider The Lord of the Rings along with two great ancient exercises of nostalgia, Homer’s Odyssey and Plato’s Republic."
