Tolkien and the Lord of the Rings: A Guide to Middle Earth, Colin Duriez
This absorbing guide to the mind behind Middle-earth will introduce or remind readers of the abundance that exists in Tolkien’s thought and imagination.
The book opens with an introduction to the various parts and chapters of The Lord of the Rings and links this to a subsequent A-Z section, divided into sub-sections, e.g. beings, places, events, writing, themes. The last part of the book is a brief biography of Tolkien, with information on his professional life, his friends (such as C.S. Lewis and the Inklings) and the shape of his thought and work.
Condition: Good. A book that has been read but is in good condition. No obvious damage to the book cover. No highlighting of text, no writing in the margins, and no missing.
