J.R.R. Tolkien introduced us to the The Hobbit in 1937. The Lord of the Rings trilogy was published in the 50’s. Tolkien’s “world of Middle-Earth” still continues to fascinate and enamor us today. This session discusses the humanistic themes and psychological considerations of this much-loved trilogy.
