Nov 8

Tom Shippey has written up a very nice book review of Martin Arnold's The Dragon: Fear and Power in the November issue of Literary Review.

"Any uncertainty about how to visualise dragons is swept aside by a hundred illustrations, taking in old masters, medieval illuminations, films and posters (for instance, of suffragettes facing down the dragon of ‘Indecency’). Tolkien would be pleased to know that we once more live in a great age of dragon invention."
