That’s right folks.
Today the much-anticipated new book by Tolkien is now available 😀
Beowulf: A Translation and Commentary contains the Professor’s own translation of the Anglo Saxon epic poem, and includes essays to accompany the work.
But that’s not all, for we also get a fascinating short story written by Tolkien himself, entitled Sellic Spell.
I can’t tell you how excited I am to get my hands on a copy and start reading. The book has been dispatched to me and I’m hoping to receive it within the next day or two.
Naturally, expect a review of the contents and the book itself, once it arrives.
In the meantime, in my next post I’ll be writing about (yet another) intriguing bit of Middle-earth mystery … something involving a creature that outmatched a Valar … hmmm – that is, of course, unless my copy of Beowulf: A Translation and Commentary arrives before that 🙂
