Wessex Research Group host a talk by Gordon Strong on ‘J.R.R. Tolkien Teller of Tales, Man of Faith’
In this talk Gordon will examine the endlessly fascinating inner life of Tolkien which was not only the wellspring of his inspiration, but helped to create an endless landscape of the imagination. Tolkien’s spiritual world is complex and sometimes contradictory. When examined there emerges a man of noble ideals and, above all, compassion. Gordon Strong has written numerous books on myth, legends and metaphysics. His Merlin – Master of Magick was a runaway success in the U.S. and his novels with both Medieval and Modern themes are very popular. As an authority on the Neolithic age and the Arthurian Tales, he has appeared in the National Geographic T.V. feature The Truth behind King Arthur.
