A Book for the Literary Scholar
I've just completed a class on Tolkien, and have picked up the Shippey for myself to read as a capstone. Throughly enjoyable, but not light reading. This is a book for those who are interested especially in etymology and literary criticism.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Two amazing men!
Last night I saw Tom Shippey speak about this book at Left Bank Books in St. Louis. He is an fascinating man with many great insights into Tolkien and his writings. Shippey and Tolkien's lives, though lived fifty years apart, have followed similar paths. This puts Shippey in a unique position to write about Tolkien.Was this review helpful?
