Review quote

"Students preparing research papers and students boning up for class will reach eagerly for these well-designed additions to accessible literary criticism..." "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."
