Critique of "Distressing Tale of Thangobrind the Jeweler" refers to a hand-written manuscript by J.R.R. Tolkien, in which he offers a criticism of Lord Dunsany's story "Distressing Tale of Thangobrind the Jeweler". The manuscript was found in Tolkien's copy of the fantasy anthology Swords & Sorcery (which included the story), a gift from L. Sprague de Camp (who wrote the introduction of the book). According to sales of the item, Tolkien's text is "not [a] very complementary critique".[1][2]
