I tried to contact the University of Oxford. But got no result. Then I discovered that the 'Oxford Magazine' have its own website then I sent another email today. But I think it is dificult.

The bibliography in Brazil on Tolkien is very small. Are only about 60 books. As you can see in the ebook that I did with the list of all books published here:http://tolkienbrasil.com/noticias/sob ... cacoes-tolkien-no-brasil/

I'm doing an analysis of Tolkien's poems and it is not my intention to publish online or in print work anything. Is a academic seminar on literature.

The first academic studies of Tolkien's books in Brazil began around 2005. And I have always encouraged this kind of work here, since Tolkien's books are not considered 'academic' properly, but I think that could be change.

I did not think to contact the Tolkien Estate to provide me with the poem. But hopefully some other academic or even Oxford can provide me this poem.

The classic bestseller behind this year's biggest movie, this film tie-in edition features the complete story of Bilbo Baggins' adventures in Middle-earth as shown in the film trilogy, with a striking cover image from Peter Jackson's film adaptation and drawings and maps by J.R.R. Tolkien. Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely travelling further than the pantry of his hobbit-hole in Bag End. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard, Gandalf, and a company of thirteen dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an unexpected journey 'there and back again'. They have a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon...The prelude to The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit has sold many millions of copies since its publication in 1937, establishing itself as one of the most beloved and influential books of the twentieth century.

Tolkien: The Forest and the City (Hardback) Edited by Helen Conrad-O'Briain, Edited by Gerard Hynes ($63.33)

Full description for Tolkien: The Forest and the City

Despite the popular and scholarly association of Tolkien with the natural world and literary world-building, Middle-earth as landscape and built environment has been relatively neglected as background, foreground and actor in his texts. Tolkien: the forest and the city presents new work by some of the finest scholars in Tolkien studies, as well as research from a number of emerging scholars, addressing this lacuna. The permeable interface between nature and culture, creation and sub-creation, within Tolkien's world is of absolute importance to our understanding of Tolkien's larger point in writing. From deforestation to the shape of a window, from Sam's cooking gear to the origins of the party tree, this book surveys a world written to distill and intensify the realities of our own. Drawing on a wide variety of critical approaches, from philology to ecocriticism, in a clear, approachable style, this collection explores the interaction of culture and nature that imbues Tolkien's secondary world with the immediacy of our own.

The Hobbit Facsimile First Edition: Boxed Set (Hardback) By (author) J. R. R. Tolkien $50.63




Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers Ltd
Published: 13 September 2013
Format: Hardback 312 pages
See: Full bibliographic data
Categories: Classics Fantasy
ISBN 13: 9780007440832 ISBN 10: 0007440839
Sales rank: 202,844

This sumptuous gift set contains a replica of the very rare first edition of The Hobbit, plus a book about the books's publication history and a CD of previously unreleased archive recordings featuring J.R.R. Tolkien reading from his book. The Hobbit was published on 21 September 1937 with a print run of 1,500 copies. With a beautiful cover design by the author and a coloured frontispiece painting, the book proved to be popular and was reprinted within three months, and history was already being made. The scarcity of the first edition has resulted in copies commanding huge prices, way beyond the reach of most Tolkien fans. In addition, subsequent changes to the text - particularly those to chapter five when Tolkien decided to expand the text to marry it up to events in The Lord of the Rings - mean that the opportunity to read the book in its original form and format has become quite difficult. To commemorate the 75th anniversary of publication, this special edition reprints the first edition, so that Tolkien's book may be enjoyed in its original form. Included in the box is a CD deaturing recordings of Tolkien reading extracts from the book, including more than half an hour of archive recordings only recently discovered and never before released. In addition, a full colour booklet traces the origins of The Hobbit and its publication history, complete with a gallery of artwork and covers for this remarkable book.

J. R. R. Tolkien is arguably the most influential and popular of all fantasy writers. Although his position and status have long been controversial, his popularity has not faded. His best-loved works, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, have sold millions of copies around the world and continue to enthral readers young and old. This lively collection of original essays examines The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings in the light of children's literature theory and approaches, as well as from adult and fantasy literature perspectives. Exploring issues such as gender, language, worldbuilding, and ecocriticism, the volume also places Tolkien's works in the context of a range of visual media, including Peter Jackson's film adaptations.
