This is the next Tolkien book I'd recommend a good introduction to Tolkien the essayist and the short story teller The short story Leaf by Niggle and the essay On Fairy Stories alone are worth the purchase and the other pieces are pretty good too One wishes the poem mythopoeia were here too but alas it is notThe only downside to this book is that it overlaps with uite a few other Tolkien anthologies But in most cases that's okay because the scholarly tone of most of Tolkien's work means only very few people collect all Tolkien the anthologies anyway At any rate if I were to come up with a list of BASIC Tolkieniana er that looks strange No wonder that term isn't used often it would comprise of1 The Lord of the Rings;2 The Hobbit;3 The Tolkien Reader;4 The Silmarillion; and5 Humphrey Carpenter's Tolkien A BiographyAnd then you can explore the rest of Tolkien's body of work as you see fit

    Epub The Tolkien Reader Kindle ´ The Tolkien Kindle - è amateur sleuth.co tolkien epub, reader free, The Tolkien epub, The Tolkien Reader PDFI debated on how I should rate this book I really enjoyed a couple of the stories but liked the poetry less well I've never really been a fan of poetry even that within Tolkien's Middle Earth books However Leaf By Niggle and Farmer Giles of Ham were so enjoyable that they bumped this volume up to four stars In fact Leaf is so good that I would rate it as one of the best short stories that I have ever read

    Epub The Tolkien Reader Kindle ´ The Tolkien Kindle - è amateur sleuth.co tolkien epub, reader free, The Tolkien epub, The Tolkien Reader PDFMost of this was probably around 3 stars for me fine not memorableBut it also includes a wonderful essay On Fairy Stories I would consider this reuired reading for anyone with a particular interest in the fantasy genre What Tolkien has to say on subjects like originality escapism and the role of fairy stories in adult life is just as relevant today as it was when it was written

    Epub The Tolkien Reader Kindle ´ The Tolkien Kindle - è amateur sleuth.co tolkien epub, reader free, The Tolkien epub, The Tolkien Reader PDFThis collection is a must read for fans of all forms of fantasy His essay On Fairy Tales is worth reading at least twice If reading On Fairy tales for the first time I suggest you try to avoid reading the footnotes They're interesting but they knock you out of Tolkien's thought train Then read it again preferrably immediately For while Tolkien focuses on fairy stories he in fact discusses nothing short of the nature and significance of all fictionThe Homecoming of Beorhtnoth and Farmer Giles of Han illustrate the enormous breadth of Professor Tolkien's wit and scholarship The poems frankly might only be of interest to die hard LOTR fansRecommend you skip Peter S Beagle's essay on Tolkien's Magic Ring as it adds nothing to the collection If Mister Beagle actually read The Lord of the Rings he certainly didn't understand it Your opinions will be at least as good as his
