J.R.R. Tolkien grew to love his Middle Earth creations, but he never lost his deep affection for Arthurian England and its legends. In the late thirties, he abandoned an epic poem nearly a thousand lines long on the fall of King Arthur. It was a lapse he would regret: Even the mid-fifties, he voiced hopes to return to this ambitious project. Now we can see why. Composed in artful metered unrhymed lines, The Fall of Arthur holds its place as a significant achievement by a scholar poet who loved his craft. Editor's recommendation.
