Just had a look at my copy of The Welsh Review, which is an A5 booklet, with 63 pages, Tolkien's poem is on 11 pages of A5 printed on both sides, I am struggling with how this can become a 120 page book.

Trotter, if you click on one of the related sites, like Amazon, you will see Verlyn Flieger's name there.

Link: https://www.amazon.ca/Lay-Aotrou-Itrou ... 0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=

It is also on the harperreach website: http://www.harperreach.com/products/the-lay-of-aotrou-and-itroun/

Edit: And thanks for the information about the English/Serbian edition. I am aware of that for a while and have been considering getting it for a while now.

The title (in your browser) of the linked HarperCollins web page states "The Lay of Aotrou and Itroun - Verlyn Flieger - eBook". That's the only reference I could see to Flieger.

I guess it would need some additional material by someone in order to bulk it up from being a small pamphlet... I enjoyed the Serbian edition; A few bits of tortured English here and there, but overall a worthy volume.

Edit: Some extra info:

I'm not sure if this has come up (I did a quick search of the boards and did not find anything on it).

HarperCollins seems to be releasing The Lay of Aotrou and Itroun by Verlyn Flieger later this year.

Link: http://www.harpercollins.ca/978000820 ... -lay-of-aotrou-and-itroun


The website states at the moment that it is an ebook only, and I can't find any reference to Verlyn Flieger on the site that you linked to, where did you see that?

The poem has been reprinted twice, since its appearance in the Welsh Review in 1945, http://www.tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=31350, in a bilingual English/Serbian edition.
