The Fall of Arthur

Post#1 » Mon Jul 08, 2013 12:09 am

Recently I bought the newest book written by J.R.R. Tolkien published by Christopher Tolkien called The Fall of Arthur. It's about the Arthurian legend. Has anybody else heard about it? Is anybody else reading it. What do you think?

I just received my copy Arwen. I have read some of the section that looks at the Silmarillion a bit, but not the poetry yet.

At the moment I prefer this type of poetry compared to the type employed for the Lay of Leithian for example [the tales themselves aside for the moment], so I'm expecting to really enjoy, being a fan of the Arthurian traditions as well.

I hadn't heard of it, but I'll be sure to look for it now. :)
