Philology
(Bachelor’s programme)
2018
This final qualifying paper is devoted to the analysis and study of the characteristics of the organization of fictional space in the novel by J.R.R. Tolkien "Lord of the Rings". Particular attention is paid to the creation of fictional space, namely the work with the names of the locuses, its relationships with each other, as well as their role in the development of the plot and characters. The purpose of the work is to analyze the organization of space using the methodology of Lotman, as well as evidence that the entire space of Middle-earth in the novel forms a maze of paths for the main characters, which allows a new approach to the symbolic plan of the work.
