(No reviews yet) Write a Review

The spellbinding world of Middle-earth is full of beasts and battles, heroes and heroines, and the struggle between good and evil.
In this dictionary of sources, Tolkien scholar and best-selling author David Day's four decades of research inform us about the lands, inhabitants, languages, geography and history of Middle-earth.
This compelling encyclopedia on Tolkien's world also includes over 200 illustrations and an appendix that examines the legends that were key sources for Tolkien's creations - the Voelsunga Saga, the Nibelungenlied, and Richard Wagner's Ring Cycle.


AUTHOR: David Day was born and brought up in Canada. He has published more than twenty books in the fields of poetry, ecology, natural history, fantasy and mythology and a number of award-winning children's books. His writing has also appeared in many magazines and anthologies. His enduring fascination with complex mythologies led him to J.R.R. Tolkien.
