Book Description Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Hardcover. Condition: New. 432 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 5.8in. x 1.6in.The Lord of the Rings, J. R. R. Tolkiens three-volume epic, is set in the imaginary world of Middle-earth - home to many strange beings, and most notably hobbits, a peace-loving little people, cheerful and shy. Since its original British publication in 1954-55, the saga has entranced readers of all ages. It is at once a classic myth and a modern fairy tale. Critic Michael Straight has hailed it as one of the very few works of genius in recent literature. Middle-earth is a world receptive to poets, scholars, children, and all other people of good will. Donald Barr has described it as a scrubbed morning world, and a ringing nightmare world. . . especially sunlit, and shadowed by perils very fundamental, of a peculiarly uncompounded darkness. The story of ths world is one of high and heroic adventure. Barr compared it to Beowulf, C. S. Lewis to Orlando Furioso, W. H. Auden to The Thirty-nine Steps. In fact the saga is sui generis - a triumph of imagination which springs to life within its own framework and on its own terms. This item ships from multiple locations.
