It's amazing what works can lie hidden for years in dusty boxes. I must look out for that one when it's published. Thanks for sharing it with us, Peredhil.

Wow,that is great.I hope it is published soon. :D
I was born to catch dragons in their dens
And pick flowers
To tell tales and laugh away the morning
To drift and dream like a lazy stream
And walk barefoot across sunshine days.

I thought we had a similar article about Michael Drout's discovery in our news but since I couldn't find it in the archive, I must have read it somewhere else. Thanks for sharing, Peredhil.
I will have the extrodinary pleasure of attending a lecture by Prof. Drout at the Tolkien Gathering in December. I have already started reading a translation of Beowulf and Tolkien's Beowulf: The Monster and the Critics so I will be prepared for this opportunity of a lifetime. :teacher:

Life's a piece of sheit, when you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true
You'll see its all a show, people laughin as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you

Sweet merciful Eru! That´s alot:D Just to my flavour;)
But still I´d like to have the book rather then reading it from the internet...

I think I'm going to find waiting for Tolkien's Beowulf to be published almost as torturous as I'm finding waiting for the new Spiderman movie and series of Dr Who. Oh, the torture.

I haven't actualy read the King Arther book... I'm going to have to do so now. I'm reading Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde at the moment...again...for the 12th time in a row. :disturbed: I'm not obsessed. Honest! *crosses her fingers behind her back!*
