J.R.R. Tolkien e a crítica à modernidade is a Brazilian academic book written by Paulo Cristelli.[1]

[edit] From the publisher

Relying on autobiographical material represented by the letters of Tolkien and important theorists of literature and the social sciences, Paul Cristelli makes it clear that Tolkienian fiction springs actually the great crises of the twentieth century: the mechanized wars, genocides scale unprecedented environmental destruction and accelerated by the successive phases of the Industrial Revolution.
