Following a lengthy biographical introduction, 15 essays gathered from a variety of sources delve into the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, explaining some of the themes of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, as well as exploring Tolkien's style and sources. Essays range from those praising Tolkien's ability to combine adult themes and children's style, to those criticizing him for failing to unite common objects with universal themes. Others reject charges of racism against Tolkien or analyze his use of myth and heroism. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
