New Tolkien for HarperCollins

January 6, 2009 at 10:32 pm by xoanon  - 

From HarperCollins is to publish a new book by the late Lord of the Rings author J R R Tolkien. The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún, edited and introduced by Tolkien’s son Christopher, will be published in hardback in May 2009. The previously unpublished work was written while Tolkien was professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford University during the 1920s and ’30s, before he wrote The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. The publication will make available for the first time Tolkien’s extensive retelling in English narrative verse of the epic Norse tales of Sigurd the Völsung and the Fall of the Niflungs. Christopher Tolkien edited Tolkien’s most recent title The Children of Húrin in 2007. Further details about the contents of the book will be revealed closer to publication.
