    One thought on “The Lay of Aotrou and Itroun”

    1. I still have a whole rant about the way the Tolkien estate is putting out these books, padded out with excerpts from Tolkien s drafts, and yet marketing them to a general rather than scholarly audience If you re here for Gollums and hobbitses, you ll be disappointed, though you can see some seeds for and parallels with Tolkien s later, greater work.Personally, I was glad to get to read this and the extra material, because Tolkien s work and scholarship fascinates me Where he edited his own work, [...]

    2. I ve been waiting for this title to cross the pond for a long time Now that I ve read it from cover to cover, I must say it was worth the wait Tolkien serves up a dark faerie tale in the form of a Breton lay, a cautionary tale that reminds us that we should be careful what we wish for, because we just might get it, and the price tag might be too high.This book is a real treat for Tolkien fans because, in addition to the final, published edition of the poem, there are also previous versions of th [...]

    3. This was a Christmas gift from the family to help flesh out my Tolkien shelf, and I must say that it did than that It gave me a very enjoyable read Put together with a few different versions of the poem it also contains three that he did of similar subject matter that led up to this one This is not a book based in his Middle Earth mythology, but stories taking place in a medieval time and based on stories coming from that time period And if your wondering who Aotrou and Itroun are, they are j [...]

    4. I like the book, but I didn t love it.Interesting to see the earlier works of Tolkien and how he came about some of his other stories I would suggest it if you want to learn about Tolkien s writings.

    5. Nice short story Nice alliteration, and rhymes.Plot is simple, and standard I think the prose is the important part so then the plot.

    6. Read the newest edition of this It was only okay I dunno why they needed to release this with a bunch of fluff at the beginning and end, guess for money Tolkien s stuff was good though.

    7. A fine quick read for Tolkien completists or those with an obsessive fixation on medieval poetry Not much good for anyone else

    8. This was definitely an interesting study of how J R R Tolkein wrote, but I ve never been one for poetry, so to me, the content was a bit dry, even if it was fascinating to see part of the creative process An excellent choice for those who are curious, or just want to see how things evolve, but if you don t care about such things, this book may not be for you.

    9. Masterfully written in the tradition of the lay and containing some lines of great beauty The reason why I did not love it, though, is the rather simple structure and rhyme scheme that somehow bugged me as well as the lack of depth in the tale itself.

    10. Interesting early old English style poetry from Tolkien Tale was simple enough, and the treatment of the material entertaining Makes you wonder how an epic length poem in that or the Anglo Saxon alliterative style would have turned out.
