The Tolkien Reader
Stories, poems, and commentaries by J.R.R. Tolkien.
Farmer Giles of Ham— An imaginative history of the distant past that introduces the rather unheroic Farmer Giles, whose efforts to capture a somewhat untrustworthy dragon prove most challenging.
The Adventures of Tom Bombadil— A marvelous collection of verse in praise of Tom Bombadil, that staunch friend of the Hobbits in The Lord of the Rings.
Tree and Leaf— Contains "On Fairy Stories," Professor Tolkien's now famous essay on the form of the fairy story and the treatment of fantasy.
