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This monograph is a collection of analytic articles--both previously published and unpublished in about equal measure--on Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit," written by Tolkien scholar and Comparative Translationist Mark T. Hooker, most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."

Beyond Bree says 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."

Includes illustrations by James Dunning.
