Reviews for A Companion to J. R. R. Tolkien

A Companion to J.R.R. Tolkienis an easy recommendation for any academic institution which offers a course in Tolkien studies, but would also do well on the shelves of an institution specialising in English literature. (Reference Reviews, 1 October 2015) I highly recommend this volume and count it as one of the most important works of collected scholarship on Tolkien to date. (Journal of Tolkien Research, 1 October 2015)
