About the Book

"This collection of essays offers a consensus of director Peter Jackson's successful adaptations of J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy. Part One compares and contrasts the organizational principles of the books and films. Part Two focuses on the methods used to transform the characters and settings of Tolkien's narrative into the personalities and places visualized on screen"--Provided by publisher.
