What a fun review of Toilken
I have enjoyed read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. I am enjoying this series of lectures. What a great way to learn...and no tests!
This podcast has become self-indulgent and plodding. 5 episodes on a poem. Not really for me.
Educational and Entertaining!
Not only has this greatly expanded my knowledge and my enjoyment of both Tolkien's written works and the adaptations, I think that Prof. Olsen has, by example, taught me to be a more precise thinker and communicator. Can't speak highly enough of this show or his classes.
