Quite True

<p>I have read <i>Beowulf and The Critics</i> and that particular quotation is very apt. It not only expresses Tolkien's view of translated work but goes back to Owen Barfield's similar point in <i>Poetic Diction</i> , a work that greatly influenced Tolkien. There is a thread for discussion of non English versions of LotR and The Sil in the Langauge forum. It has been rather heavily weighted toward the Germanic languages. We would love to have someone weigh in from the Russian text. <BR><BR><BR>BTW, this book is available from Amazon </p>

<p>I got the book and read it. It brings a whole new light on parts of the Hobbit and LotR that I had <i>thought</i> I understood. Also there are quotes form Tolkien's "Notes on Nomenclature" which is currently out of print - only found in the 1975 edition of <i>A Tolkien Compass</i>. This book is a must-read for any Tolkien scholar </p>
