Yet it has also been widely labeled as reactionary and escapist by hostile critics. Patrick Currys book shows just how mistaken they are. He reveals Tolkiens profound and subtle advocacy of community, ecology, and spiritual values against the destructive forces of runaway modernity, Tolkiens remedy, and the project implicit in his literary mythology, is a re-enchantment of the world. In helping us to realize that living nature, including humanity, is sacred, his writings draw on ancient magical mythology, but at the same time resonate closely with the ideas of contemporary radical ecology. Curry argues that Tolkien addresses hard global realities and widely justified fears. In this way, his story has transcended its English roots to achieve universal relevance, and his imaginary world gives people everywhere hope for this one.
