Why we love this
The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien, edited by Humphrey Carpenter. London: George Allen and Unwin, 1981. First UK printing. Tolkien belonged to a generation of prodigious letter writers. From this fascinating selection we see a mind of rich complexity; artistic, religious, charmingly eccentric, sentimental, and ultimately brilliant. As he wrestles with the creation of the characters for his Lord of the Rings trilogy in particular, his comments to friends make fascinating reading.
