The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun by J. R. R. Tolkien
The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun

fafnir, May 7, 2009

For any true Tolkien fan, you must read this book to find the beginnings of the Mythology of Middle-Earth. I found the academic level hard to digest and the poetic format difficult to follow. Once you get the rythm of the poetics and immerse yourself in Norse mythology, you really can find answers to where Middle-Earth came from. A must read for anyone who has read the Appendices and the Simillarion.
