This work admirably displays Tolkien's powers as a poet who has fully mastered skaldic verse forms. He breathes new life into ancient poetics as well as into ancient myths. Literati have ignored Tolkien's real genius for far too long. It's time his reputation be raised from mere "fantasy writer" to one of the Twentieth Century's truly great writers.

A really good book explaining how Tolkien got the ideas for the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit books. Also very interesting was the Norse poems and how they were constructed to tell their myths and stories. A very easy to read book that is full of information. Great!
