Product description

Review

“Shippey’s exploration of Tolkien’s themes, especially the nature of evil, is superb” Independent

“Shippey’s research seems limitless. He writes with unusual clarity and presents his arguments well” Sunday Times

“Shippey deepens your understanding of the work without making you forget your initial, purely instinctive response to Middle-earth and hobbits” Houston Chronicle

About the Author

Professor Tom Shippey taught at Oxford, overlapping chronologically with Professor Tolkien and teaching the same syllabus, giving him an intimate familiarity with the poems and the languages which formed the main stimulus to Tolkien’s imagination. He subsequently held the same Chair of English Language and Medieval Literature at Leeds University which Tolkien held early in his career, and currently holds the Walter J. Ong Chair of Humanities at Saint Louis University, USA.
