Normal 0 false false false EN-US X-NONE X-NONE This is a 2nd printing of the 1994 edition of Poems and Stories. Besides some mild edgewear to the dust jacket and the spine having loosened slightly from the textblock (see picture), I’d say this book is in very good plus to near fine (like new) condition. I don’t think this book has ever been read. The dust jacket is protected in a Mylar book jacket cover. A collection of pieces that barely touches upon Middle-earth; overall, it renders a much more complete account of this scholar, poet, critic, and storyteller’s talents. The charming, deceptively light poems of “The Adventures of Tom Bambadil” contain intriguing sidelights on Middle-earth lore, while the dramatic poem “The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth,” complete with scholarly introduction, describes the aftermath of the Battle of Maldon, which occurred in the year 991. The essay “On Fairy-stories” has won critical acclaim, as have the tales “Farmer Giles of Ham” and “Smith of Wootton Major,” as well as the story that most closely reflects Tolkien's personal philosophy (“Leaf by Niggle”). Some of these may be familiar, or available individually; still, this collection is a splendid accompaniment for existing fans or an excellent introduction for newcomers. Check out my other items! I have lots of Tolkien books and some C. S. Lewis ones up for sale--all starting out at just 99 cents. All the proceeds will benefit Compassion International; check out their website for more info.
