Review quote

"As always with Chelsea critical books, each volume contains the best of what has been written about the authors." "A scholarly and diverse analysis of a Mexican literary classic, recommended for college libraries and international literary study shelves." "Students preparing research papers and students boning up for class will reach eagerly for these well-designed additions to accessible literary criticism..." "Each attractive volume presents recent essays by noted critics who examine in detail aspects of a single literary work...Highly recommended for academic collections." "Each essay is well-defined and laboriously researched, and each opinion is defended within its context...The book is a useful tool for students needing to examine the themes and context of Tolkien's work."
