The Hobbit is a tale of high adventure, undertaken by a company of dwarves, in search of dragon-guarded gold. A reluctant partner in this perilous quest is Bilbo . By J.R.R. Tolkien, David Wenzel. First released within the usa greater than sixty years in the past, J. R. R. Tolkien's The Hobbit has develop into. Tolkien, speaking of The Hobbit, always tried to correct two miscon- ceptions: It was not written simply for halls and comic theater. The Fellowship of the Ring: .

an Illustrated edItIon of the fantasy ClassIC

The King tries to claim the gold for his own, but Giles, disillusioned by the king and his court, and as independent-minded as any hobbit, uses the treasure to set up his own Little Kingdom and rules it long and merrily. The simple introduction Tolkien had planned, explaining Faery by means of a fable about a cook and a cake, grew into a dreamy and elegiac story with allegorical and autobiographical undertones, a subtle meditation on the life of an artist concealed inside a short and deceptively simple fairy-tale.

He encounters reminders, such as a troop of elven mariners returning from war, that Faery is a vast world with concerns of its own, one that extends physically and temporally far beyond the understanding of the human visiting it.

Then he knelt [before the Queen], and she stooped and laid her hand on his head, and a great stillness came upon him; and he seemed to be both in the World and in Faery, and also outside them and surveying them, so that he was at once in bereavement, and in ownership, and in peace. When after a while the stillness passed he raised his head and stood up. The dawn was in the sky and the stars were pale, and the Queen was gone.

But after many years and adventures, including dancing with the Queen of Faery and meeting the King in an unexpected guise, he learns it is time to pass on his gift to another child, and reluctantly but freely does so.

Tolkien preferred to avoid allegory in his writings, but it is tempting to see Tolkien himself in the boy Smith, who discovers he can sing in Elvish on his tenth birthday, and later shares stories and gifts from Faery with his wife and children, who can see the star on his brow.

Like Giles, Smith has also been published in a critical edition with additional scholarly material, edited by Verlyn Flieger , HarperCollins , with the original illustrations by Pauline Baynes. Old Tom Bombadil had a merry wedding, crowned all with buttercups, hat and feather shedding; his bride with forgetmenots and flag-lilies for garland was robed all in silver-green.

He sang like a starling, hummed like a honey-bee, lilted to the fiddle, clasping his river-maid round her slender middle. Though both the poem and the illustrations are lovely, a lack of familiarity with the story behind them could make it a frustrating experience for some children, unless it supplements or introduces an early reading of The Hobbit.

Day is ended, dim my eyes, but journey long before me lies. Farewell, friends! I hear the call. Foam is white and waves are grey; beyond the sunset leads my way. SLIDE Covers of various editions of the letters from Father Christmas Letters from Father Christmas is a collection of the annual illustrated letters Tolkien wrote to his children between and , and left for them to find on the mantle above the fireplace, dusted with snow, on Christmas morning.

They were lavishly and delightfully illustrated with drawings of Father Christmas, his assistants and neighbors, their home at the North Pole, and their misadventures, and complete with decorated envelopes with Polar postage stamps. The letters have been published in various editions, include a miniature stocking-stuffer size and one in which the letters can be removed from envelopes.

SLIDE Two vignettes from the letters Tolkien loved Christmas time, and it afforded him the opportunity to really relish being the father of young children. He was unusual among the other Oxford professors of his time in having a wife and family; most professors were bachelors. One of the other interesting things is that you can see, as Kris Swank pointed out in another of her papers, that some story elements in The Father Christmas Letters seem to have been borrowed from The Hobbit— and vice versa!

It was the biggest bang in the world, and the most monstrous firework there ever has been.

He ate quite a lot of my Christmas chocolates before he said he felt better and climbed back to mend it and get the stars tidy. Then I found out the reindeer had broken loose.

The Hobbit: Graphic Novel

They were running all over the country, breaking reins and ropes and tossing presents up in the air. They were all packed up to start, you see—[…] it only happened this morning. Of course he did it—you remember I had to move last year because of him? The tap for turning on the Rory Bory Aylis fireworks is still in the cellar of my old house. The North Polar Bear knew he must never, never touch it.

I only let it off on special days like Christmas. You have never seen or heard anything like it. Here we see it in pictorial form. All are enjoyable in their own right, especially for the mix of humor and scholarship in Farmer Giles of Ham, the dream-like atmosphere of Smith of Wootton Major, and the charm of the Father Christmas letters.

But for anyone with a more than casual interest in Tolkien as a writer and artist, they shed invaluable light on his creative process, his family relations, and the themes and motifs that underlie all his writing.

Bliss, with their sometimes-awkward illustrations, to the economically sketched world and mature authorial voice of Smith of Wootton Major and the technical mastery of his later Father Christmas illustrations.
