Letter 352 is a letter written by J.R.R. Tolkien and published in The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien.

Summary

This fragment of a letter, dated June 5, 1973, was addressed to Ungfrú Aðalsteinsdottir, an Icelandic reader. Tolkien is very pleased to know there will be an Icelandic translation of The Hobbit, because he considers the language best suited for the story.

Notes

Tolkien would not live to see the translation published. Hobbitinn, translated by Úlfur Ragnarsson and Karl Ágúst Úlfsson, was published by Almenna Bókafélagið in Reykjavik in 1978.
