Written for all those who are interested in Tolkiens work, and of course for all those interested in hobbits, this is the first book to focus on the changes made to the hobbits characters not only by Tolkien but also by other artists - actors, writers, directors, lyricists and choreographers.The beloved characters of Bilbo, Frodo, Sam, Merry and Pippin have been much-adapted for radio, television, film and stage. Lynette Porter follows the hobbits through these many other lives, from Tolkiens on-page revisions and John Boormans unmade screenplays, through to Peter Jacksons The Lord of the Rings film trilogy and its musical counterpart. She also reviews over 50 years of Hobbit Art, including the work of Alan Lee, John Howe and Ted Nasmith. Journeying through fanzines, videogames, Fanfiction and more, Porter demonstrates how the hobbits, their characters and their stories continue to introduce new audiences to Tolkiens work, in new and adapted forms.
