The Road to Fair Elfland – Tolkien On Fairy-stories. An Extended Commentary


The Road to Fair Elfland – Tolkien On Fairy-stories: An Extended Commentary is an extension of Verlyn Flieger’s and Douglas A. Anderson’s edition of the groundbreaking essay “On Fairy-stories” by J.R.R. Tolkien. On one hand, the new Commentary is meant to provide references to Tolkien’s precedents and sources for the themes he treated in his essay and the ways in which they were treated; on the other, it also maintains the purpose to illustrate the way in which Tolkien’s essay proved to be influential or even ahead of its time in the decades following its earliest publication, until the present.
