Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

J.R.R. Tolkien is the father of modern fantasy. He created characters and a world so rich with detailsand#151;and so uniqueand#151;that it warranted a whole new vocabulary along with it. His creation of language is not surprising, considering his first civilian job following his service during World War I was working on the Oxford English Dictionary. Inside, youand#8217;ll find a chronology of Tolkienand#8217;s life, along with a short biography and an explanation of his writings. Then flip through the dictionary to discover terms like Aglarond, the great caverns beneath Helmand#8217;s Deep, or the Black Riders and the mystery surrounding themand#151;among many other terms. This companion serves as a terrific resource for all those in love with Middle Earth and its inhabitants.

Luxurious rich brown flexibound cover.

Perfect for Tolkien fans, linguists, or anyone prone to fantasy.

Tolkien: A Dictionary is a beautiful addition to any home library, and makes a great conversation piece.
