Anyone who has read Marion Zimmer Bradley will know her books have strong female lead characters. Her discussion of The Lord of the Rings by Tolkien centres on the female characters in the Lord of the Rings - surprisingly few of them. I have read the book, The Lord of the Rings, more than once, and watched the DVDs, also more than once. Ms Bradley is very fair, indeed sympathetic, to Tolkien, his characters and his story. This is not a particularly long dissertation (not book length) but it shows interesting thoughts, side lights, insights into both the book and Tolkien's female characters.

While I was looking for stuff from MZB I did not know before, I stumbled over this short essay.
It does not contain a story by herself, but an analysis of and her thoughts about the relatively low number of female characters in Tolkien's Lord of the Rings.
It makes an interesting read if you are interested in such type of analysis, and in both authors, as I am.
Just do not make the mistake of expecting a fantasy story and then be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Hobbit analysis from a fantasy expert 8 Mar. 2013
By J. Vasilius - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Marion Zimmer Bradly has never written anything mediocre in her life. I have enjoyed her novels for years. I was pleased to see her quick intellect turn to one of my childhood favorites, "The Hobbit." Bradley goes beyond the pat explanations of Middle Earth as a reflection of Tolkien's scholarship in language and sagas. Her analysis of the interplay between the standard stories and Tolkien's variations were insightful and grounded in bother her own scholarship and an apprectiation of Tolkien's stories and their world.In particular, I relished her explanation of how a reader can be a feminist and still enjoy a book devoid of female characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Helps my understanding . . . 9 May 2013
By Eric McFail - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a definitive work by one of the best fantasists of the last two generations. Of thousands of writers I have read, she's one of the top authors on my hero list! We all miss her.
