A glimpse of beauty,
This review is from: Tree and Leaf: Including MYTHOPOEIA (Paperback)
I'd totally recommend getting this if only for the short story "leaf by Niggle". Which in spite of Tolkien's professed "cordial dislike of allegory" is profoundly allegorical. I keep reading this every few months as a reminder of the narrative and purpose of life. Tolkien has allowed some of us to glimpse a little of the meta narrative of his work, and how he saw himself in the world. Really worth reading.
