Tolkien's Legendarium


Essays on The History of Middle-earth. Winner of the 2002 Mythopoeic Award for Inklings Studies.
Co-edited with Carl Hostetter.



When J.R.R. Tolkien died in 1973, he left behind a vast body of unpublished material related to the imaginary world of his fiction. Now arranged edited and published as The History of Middle-earth by his son and literary executor, Christopher Tolkien, these 12 volumes offer an unparalleled insight into the growth of Tolkien's mythology over five decades. This book is the first comprehensive critical examination of The History of Middle-earth.
