The Magical Worlds of The Lord of the Rings

“This is a wonderful and excellent book. ...Colbert is clearly very studied on Tolkien as well as Beowulf, Norse Mythology, and other literature that inspired Tolkien. ....Should be a companion to all people reading LotR.”

This book is based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s own explanations of the origins of his stories and the meanings behind them. Because his fictional worlds were deeply connected to his real life, the book also reveals much about Tolkien himself.
