About the Author:

J.R.R. Tolkien (1892–1973), beloved throughout the world as the creator of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, was a professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford, a fellow of Pembroke College, and a fellow of Merton College until his retirement in 1959. His chief interest was the linguistic aspects of the early English written tradition, but even as he studied these classics he was creating a set of his own.

Review:

"The book has a haunting quality, characteristic of the best of the `deeper' folktales. It is a beautiful, memorable story." Times Educational Supplement"It may be compared to the most delicate miniature but it is one of a rare kind: the more closely it is examined the more it reveals the grandeur of its conception. Whoever reads it at eight will still be going back to it at eighty." New Statesman"A tremendously valuable volume with important new insights into Tolkien's way of working. It's also a beautiful hardcover edition of the story." Mythprint
