Letter to Nevill Coghill
From Tolkien Gateway
On 21 August 1954, J.R.R. Tolkien wrote a letter to Nevill Coghill.
- Subject: Wayne G. Hammond and Christina Scull have stated that: "Nevill Coghill had written to Tolkien asking for explanations, some of which the author felt should be left until the later volumes of The Lord of the Rings appeared and his friend was able to read them". Tolkien did, however, offer some comments about Tom Bombadil in his letter.
- Publication: A section from the letter was published in a blog post by Wayne G. Hammond and Christina Scull.
