A very suspicious item (claims to be signed)

The Preface from Christopher Tolkien in this edition includes one illustration (Mirkwood) only, so this is not the right edition for you. The printing/binding is what I would expect for a £9.99 book and I think the real problem with this edition is the numbering (2 for UK editions)

A real eBay bargain, £150 for a 1962 Lord of the Rings which "looks like a new book".

Ok, but it is only one volume of the book (The Return of the King) and it has no Dust-jacket but does have Unwin Hyman on the spine, which makes it more likely to be from 1987 than 1962.

Looks like this book has finally been published

Green Suns and Faerie
Essays on J. R. R. Tolkien


Verlyn Flieger

A major contribution to the growing body of Tolkien scholarship

With the release of Peter Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings movie trilogy and forthcoming film version of The Hobbit, J. R. R. Tolkien’s popularity has never been higher. In Green Suns and Faërie, author Verlyn Flieger, one of world’s foremost Tolkien scholars, presents a selection of her best articles—some never before published—on a range of Tolkien topics.

The essays are divided into three distinct sections. The first explores Tolkien’s ideas of sub-creation–the making of a Secondary World and its relation to the real world, the second looks at Tolkien’s reconfiguration of the medieval story tradition, and the third places his work firmly within the context of the twentieth century and “modernist” literature. With discussions ranging from Tolkien’s concepts of the hero to the much-misunderstood nature of Bilbo’s last riddle in The Hobbit, Flieger reveals Tolkien as a man of both medieval learning and modern sensibility—one who is deeply engaged with the past and future, the regrets and hopes, the triumphs and tragedies, and above all the profound difficulties and dilemmas of his troubled century.

Taken in their entirety, these essays track a major scholar’s deepening understanding of the work of the master of fantasy. Green Suns and Faërie is sure to become a cornerstone of Tolkien scholarship.
