Mythlore 10 (Volume 3, Issue 2) is an issue of the Mythlore journal, published by the Mythopoeic Society. It is the same as Tolkien Journal issue 17.[1]

Glen GoodKnight's article "Death and the Desire for Deathlessness: The Counsel of Elrond" contains a letter dated 17 November 1957 to Dr. Herbert Schiro (p. 19), in which J.R.R. Tolkien discusses allegory in The Lord of the Rings and argues that is about death and deathlessness, not power and dominion.[2] This letter was later partially published in The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien as Letter 203.
