9780230619920: The Power of Tolkien's Prose: Middle-Earth's Magical Style

Tolkien's unparalleled popularity has been largely attributed to his gifts as a storyteller and his thematic currency. But The Lord of the Rings may have become a modern classic for a deeper reason than we've noticed: Tolkien is a first-rate stylist.
