4.0 out of 5 stars Anglo-Saxon, 25 Feb 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Tree and Leaf, Smith of Wootton Major, The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth (Paperback)
Firstly. the quality of the second hand book. It was in very good condition and was a good format. I don't think Unwin maintained this size for long or it may have been lost in the multiple mergers. This is (I think) the only source of the "Homecoming of Beorhtnorth" which I wanted to read. It is worth the effort of reading and sdds to my respect of Tolkien. The other stories in the book, I had read before, but reread. "Smith of Wootton Major" is a fascinating faerie tale, but "Leaf by Niggle" is a bit twee and annoying. It was almost an allegory, a type of story Tolkien despised. The essay "On Fairy Stories" is well worth reading as a clear account of Tolkien as a writer of great faerie tales.
