A Tolkien Compass


Ten writers with different viewpoints explore the political, religious, cosmological, and psychological principles of the creator of The Lord of the Rings. As leading Tolkien authority Tom Shippey (author of J. R. R. Tolkien: Author of the Century) observes in his foreword, A Tolkien Compass lives up to its name by providing vital guidance to both new and seasoned travelers in Middle-earth.
