The core of the book examines The Lord of the Rings as a linguistic and cultural map and as a response to the meaning of myth. It presents a unique argument to explain the nature of evil and also gives the reader a compelling insight into the unparalleled level of skill necessary to construct such a rich and complex story. Shippey also examines The Hobbit, explaining the hobbits' anachronistic relationship to the heroic world of Middle-earth, and shows the fundamental importance of The Silmarillion to the canon of Tolkien's work. He offers as well an illuminating look at other, lesser-known works in their connection to Tolkien's life.
About: Analyzes Tolkien's 'The Hobbit,' 'The Lord of the Rings,' 'The Silmarillion,' and his lesser works, and explains how his works tie into storytelling tradition dating back to Grimms' fairy tales and 'Beowulf.
