Focused on Tolkien and The Lord of the Rings Online, this course explores what happens to stories and films when they are turned into online games.The course is
designed as a university-level English literature class—a multi-genre,
multimedia tour of how literature, film, and games engage in the basic human
activity of storytelling. Our journey
will enable us to learn something about narrative theory, introduce us to some
key topics in media studies and cover some of the history and theory of video
games. It will also take us to some
landmarks of romance literature, the neverending story that lies behind most
fantasy games: J.R.R. Tolkien’s The
Fellowship of the Ring, a bit of Edmund Spenser’s Faerie Queene, and poems by Keats, Tennyson, Browning, and others.
