    Tolkien's The Fall of Arthur

    Just wondering if anyone has already picked up, or is planning to do so shortly, the Fall of Arthur which was recently released? This is a new book including JRRT's narrative poem involving English Arthurian Legend, plus a bunch of additional material and insight added in by Christopher Tolkien.



    I do not have plans to buy it right away as my reading list is quite long right now, but curious if anyone else has and if so what are your impressions?

    I started a thread on this topic last November, The Fall of Arthur. I did in fact pre-order the book and received it on or about May 23rd. I have not read it in its entirety, but have perused it a bit.

    The book has a very nice Foreword by Christopher Tolkien introducing the work. The poem itself is relatively short and, as is so common with Professor Tolkien, unfinished. The poem is followed by four chapters by Christopher Tolkien discussing the work.

    If you are a great fan of Tolkien and/or alliterative verse, I highly recommend it. If you are a fan of only Tolkien's works about Middle-earth or do not care for poetry, then I would not recommend it.

    Thank you for that hotlink. I am a great fan of Professor Shippey, and very much appreciate his insights into Tolkien's works.
