"Толкин в Оксфорде"
« on: 14/07/2013, 22:09:22 »
Недавно посмотрел фильм "Толкин в Оксфорде" на английском (это тот, который был снят в 1968 году ВВС в рамках серии "In Their Own Words British Authors"). Хочу поинтересоваться, а есть транскрипт или перевод этого фильма на русский? Заранее благодарен.

Oxford Calling
By THE NEW YORK TIMES

How does it happen that a writer of children's books (who began that way, if we may believe his critics) can end by producing a somber and brilliantly bizarre trilogy like "The Lord of the Rings"-part two of which ("The Two Towers") was reviewed here recently, and labeled definitely for adults? The author of that Gothic masterpiece, J. R. R. Tolkien, was asked how it all came about. What, we asked Dr. Tolkien, makes you tick? Dr. T., who teaches at Oxford when he isn't writing novels, has this brisk reply:

"I don't tick. I am not a machine. (If I did tick, I should have no views on it, and you had better ask the winder.)

"My work did not 'evolve' into a serious work. It started like that. The so-called 'children's story' was a fragment, torn out of an already existing mythology. In so far as it was dressed up as 'for children,' in style or manner, I regret it. So do the children.

"I am a philologist, and all my work is philological. I avoid hobbies because I am a very serious person and cannot distinguish between private amusement and duty. I am affable, but unsociable. I only work for private amusement, since I find my duties privately amusing."

Оффтопик оффтопиком, но, может быть, стоит собраться и сделать субтитры к фильму "Толкин в Оксфорде"?
