Nowhere and Back Again

Nowhere and Back Again is a psychogeography of J. R. R. Tolkien’s Middle-earth. Armed with the framework of the Situationist International and the tenets of Christianity, the blog pours over the maps and books of Middle-earth, telling its story through stormy literary criticism of each location in Tolkien’s fictional continent. Tearing sections from the Red Book of Westmarch and scribbling on its pages, Nowhere and Back Again tells a new, spiritually incendiary, politically liberatory tale of Middle-earth, that of the lands themselves and the authors and characters shaped by them.
