June 23: Fav Character Archetype
Humphrey Carpenter relates the story that Tolkien, during his walking tour of Switzerland in the summer of 1911, purchased some picture postcards, one of which was a reproduction of a painting of an old man with a red cloak and a long white beard, seated under a tree and nuzzling a fawn. It is entided Der Berggeist and signed J. Madelener. Carpenter records that Tolkien “preserved this postcard carefully, and long afterwards he wrote on the paper cover in which he kept it: ‘Origin of Gandalf’ ”.
