I think many of you might be interested in these lectures. Good stuff and it might even make us better writers. ~Glor

============================================


My name is Corey Olsen. I am a tenured English professor at Washington College and a PhD in medieval literature, and I have been a student of Tolkien's works for as long as I can remember.

I have become increasingly frustrated with the separation between academics and general readers, and I am determined to come out of the cloister and spend my own career sharing my scholarly work with the public. I founded this website because I was convinced that there was a large number of people out there who are eager to be included in a thoughtful literary conversation about the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. I have been delighted to find that I was right: since I launched this site in July 2009, listeners have downloaded more than 120,000 of my lectures.

The Tolkien Lectures

On this website (and through my podcast feed on iTunes), I will be posting many different kinds of material, mostly in the form of digital audio files. The heart of my work on this site is my extended, in-depth lecture series on Tolkien's major works, but I have also provided several methods through which we can enter into a more interactive conversation. All of my recorded material is completely free; I hope you have as much fun listening to them as I have making them!


--------------------
Glorfindel was tall and straight; his hair was of shining gold, his face fair and young and fearless and full of joy; his eyes were bright and keen, and his voice like music; on his brow sat wisdom, and in his hand was strength.
