Comments for Vulpes Libris

A collective of bibliophiles talking about books. Book Fox (vulpes libris): small bibliovorous mammal of overactive imagination and uncommonly large bookshop expenses. Habitat: anywhere the rustle of pages can be heard.

Comment on Where are the women in Tolkien? (Part 1) by Pat

Wed, 17 Jan 2018 03:46:30 +0000

I wonder back then how a book with women characters equal to men would have been received. I guess not well and maybe the book might not even have been published. Maybe that did influence Tolkien too. When one writes a book (it's a long work) the author certainly expects some financial returns.

Lively is not an author I usually pick up, though all her books are beautifully written. I really enjoyed MOON TIGER and JUDGEMENT DAY of her adult novels. Her memoir OLEANDER, JACARANDA is elegiac and amusing.
