Thanks Urulókë for that one--I wasn't aware of that book.
As most of you already know, the reprint of _J. R. R. Tolkien, Scholar and Storyteller: Essays in Memorium_ is now available: http://www.amazon.com/J-R-Tolkien-Sch ... +Scholar+and+Storyteller.
I'd highly recommend it if you don't already own it.
"It includes his obituary notices from The Times of London [frequently and erroneously attributed to C.S. Lewis] and his valedictory address at Oxford in which he points out, eloquently and purposefully, the artificiality of the split between language and literary study." I think the version printed here is slightly different than the one that appears in _Monsters and the the Critics_. The collection also contains an early piece by Shippey.
