From publisher's website: This group of new critical essays offers multidisciplinary analysis of director Peter Jacksonís spectacularly successful adaptations of J.R.R. Tolkienís Lord of the Rings trilogy: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), The Two Towers (2002) and The Return of the King (2003). Part One of the collection, "Techniques of Structure and Story," compares and contrasts the organizational principles of the books and films. Part Two, "Techniques of Character and Culture," focuses on the methods used to transform the characters and settings of Tolkienís narrative into the personalities and places visualized on screen. Each of the sixteen essays includes extensive notes and a separate bibliography.
