Low-Culture Receptions of Tolkien's High Fantasy: You can't always get what you want

Bishop, Chris


The purpose of this chapter is to explore the space that lies between 'authority' and 'subordination' - between the aspirations of the author for an intended audience and a projected reception, and the historical actuality of that audience and its reception. What I intend to demonstrate is the case of this particular author is just how large the distance between creation and reception can be.
