Tree and Leaf

Tree and Leaf: Includes Mythopoeia and The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth - J.R.R. Tolkien ***Read for University***

4.75 stars.

I found the first part dealing with Faerie Stories was rather spot on with the thinkings of what I've always wondered about. Certainly is a thrill to see someone, especially when that someone happens to be Tolkien who crafted the world of MiddleEarth and its inhabitants, that they share similar views on certain aspects. It only made my heart swell with something deep and heartfelt since I've been working on a 5 year project that questions where everything begins that we know from myths, legends, fairytales, folklore, and the likes.

But I'm not here to talk about me lol.

However as I noted in my updates on this book, it really drew me into Tolkien's world and take a first-hand peek inside his head, and it is certainly an eye-opener.

As for the other material in here, I liked Mythopoeia, Leaf by Niggle and The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth were interesting and added to his primary article on Faerie Stories.
