Wagner And Tolkien

by Renée Vink, Wagner And Tolkien Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Wagner And Tolkien books, "Both Rings were round and there the resemblance ceases," wrote J.R.R. Tolkien about the rings in his epic The Lord of the Rings and Richard Wagner's opera cycle The Ring of the Nibelung. Or did he? The answer is not as straightforward as many Tolkien fans believe, whether they agree with the statement or consider it misguided. Nor is the statement itself as transparently defensive as some Wagner buffs suggest. Much has been said and written about Wagner and Tolkien, a subject that tends to generate a certain amount of heat, mostly due to the former's controversial status as Hitler's favourite composer. But until now the various, often contradictory opinions and the facts and perceptions on which they are based were rarely discussed at length or analysed in depth. The publication in 2009 of Tolkien's The Legend and Sigurd and Gudr n with its partly Wagnerian content reinforced the need for a systematic treatment of the subject. This book offers one. There is more to both Rings than their common roundness, and the resemblance between Tolkien and Wagner goes beyond a Ring of Power and some narrative elements: they shared a number of preoccupations and interests - nature, nation, the North, death and immortality, language and above all, myth. This is a book about the two great mythmakers of their times, and about what they have in common despite everything that separates them.

Media Mythmakers

by Benjamin Radford, Media Mythmakers Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Media Mythmakers books, ...a provocative, well-researched book...gives an apt overview of many of the problems facing modern society. -Oakland PressThis book should be required reading for all who are caught up in the thrall of US mass media; all who think they are being manipulated, misled, and lied to but are not quite sure how an why this is happening...Written in an appealing style devoid of academic jargon and pontification, this book peels away the myths that mislead and provides the facts. It should be on every library shelf. Essential. -ChoiceWith insight and wit, Benjamin Radford trains his experienced skeptical eye on fear-mongering journalists and activists. The result is a fascinating book that leaves no modern American myth unchallenged. - Barry Glassner, author of The Culture of FearAs the lines between advertising, news, and entertainment blur, the ideal of an informed citizenry becomes harder and harder to achieve. We, the American public, aren't sure anymore what to believe, or where to put our money and trust. We know we're being manipulated, misled, and outright lied to by those who seek our support. Whether it comes from advertisers, activists, or the government, the manipulation is constant and pervasive.Those who are supposed to help us understand the world and the problems we face frequently fail us. Journalists and the news media offer entertainment and sensationalism instead of significant information. Politicians and lawmakers who guide our country are little better; instead of real solutions, we are offered merely illusions of change.This hard-hitting critique of our media culture examines not only the ways in which we are deceived, but the media's role in propagating those deceptions. But Media Mythmakers goes beyond criticism to give concrete examples of the damage that manipulation of the news causes. From missing children to the aftermath of the September 11 attacks, from the efforts to end slavery to AIDS education, myths and deception in the media threaten us all. While the public is being misled, real problems go unaddressed and resources are wasted on misguided ideas.In an increasingly complex world, where accurate and unbiased information is more important than ever, this book provides a timely and much-needed analysis.Benjamin Radford is managing editor of Skeptical Inquirer magazine and editor-in-chief of the Spanish-language magazine Pensar, published in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He is the coauthor with Robert Bartholomew of Hoaxes, Myths, and Manias: Why We Need Critical Thinking; and a member of the Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal (CSICOP). He has written hundreds of articles on a wide variety of topics, including urban legends, the paranormal, critical thinking, film, and media literacy. Radford is also a columnist for Skeptical Inquirer magazine and the Skeptical Briefs newsletter, as well as online at LiveScience.com and MediaMythmakers.com.
