‘Legend of Siguard’ reviews, book on sale today

May 5, 2009 at 10:27 am by MrCere  - 

sigurdJ.R.R. Tolkien’s newest posthumous work lands in retail today. The body of the non Middle-earth tale is told in two narrative poems told in the form of Norse mythology with a Tolkien lecture and an introduction from his son Christopher. Tolkien was a master of the forms of Old Norse and Old Englsih poetry while for most of us, that brilliance is likely to go unappreciated, there is still treasure to be gleaned in understanding the author and the traditions that led him to construct his own cosmology.

The Guardian in the UK published a faxed interview while while reviews are popping up like mushrooms. Read some here, here, and here.
