I wonder is ELT is "English Language Teaching" and related to "Pearson ELT". From memory, Pearson acquired Longmans, so could be a paperback equivalent to the hardback Longman editions? Not something I have seen before personally:


Edit:

Tolkienbooks.net has an entry for it:

I didn't even try. I figured there was a 100% chance of there being other people prepared to may more than me. I suspect I will never have one of these!

I wonder if "Tolkien's Corrigan Poems" is simply a commentary by VF on various drafts of the Lay or if Tolkien wrote multiple poems that include reference to Corrigan (I'm not aware that he did)?

At the end of the day, it is a short poem, so the commentary giving context and explanation shouldn't really be a hundred pages long, unless intended to pad. Verbosity is not a virtue, and neither - necessarily - is squeezing in every draft.

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.



VERY large text for the poem + related essays + some plates + other blurb got the English language component of the Serbian edition to that. It is really a stretch, though.

I'm looking forward to Tolkien's annotated weekly shopping list in 2018, with 150 pages of detailed commentary on the impact of soap powder on Tolkien's thinking.

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:
