From the Publisher

This monograph is a collection of analytic articles--both previously published and unpublished in about equal measure--on Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit," written by Tolkien scholar and Comparative Translationist Mark T. Hooker, most famous, perhaps, for his application of Comparative Translation to the study of Tolkien. All of the articles in the book have been reviewed and revised to take into consideration the materials newly made available in "The Lord of the Rings: A Reader’s Companion."

Reviews

Beyond Bree and Hither Shore say that there is "something here for everyone with even a passing interest in Tolkien. All of the articles are well researched, insightful, and highly informative."

Amon Hen (the September 2006 issue) says: "Highly recommendable."

Tolkien Studies (No. 4) says: a "pleasantly eccentric volume" . . . "Hooker has a wide variety of things to say that have not been heard before."

Lembas (No. 130, August 2007) says: "All in all, certainly a book that's worth the effort of taking the time to go through peacefully. For linguists--language nuts or not--and also for others, certainly one of the better products of [Tolkien] fandom."

Tolkien Collector's Guide says: "a good read and a good reference, so go buy a copy if you haven't already."


The Raynor Memorial Library at Marquette University and the Thuringian University and State Library at Jena, Germany have added a copy of A Tolkienian Mathomium to their collections.
