This is a hardback volume containing the well-loved poems from Tolkien's literary masterpiece 'The Lord Of The Rings', featuring a cover illustrated by celebrated Tolkien artist Alan Lee.
The book features poems written in Tolkien's inimitable style - each of which add to the magic, mystery and lyricism of the epic saga of 'The Lord Of The Rings'.
These poems can also be enjoyed as a separate entity, apart from the main body of the text, with each stanza giving insight into the mythology and sagas of Tolkien's' parallel universe of Middle-earth.
Trying to furnish England with a mythology he felt it hitherto lacked, and drawing on his own studies of epic poems of the past, including classics such as 'Beowulf', it could be argued that Tolkien's poetry is at the heart of the saga that was to become the Book of the 20th Century.
