Yes, thanks for that - [In reply to] Can't Post

- I was running blind in my previous post; I couldn't find either of my copies of Kocher. (I do hate it when that happens!) So after reading your post on ch.5, I made another effort and behold! - I found my paperback copy, mis-placed on a different shelf to what it ought to have been. I still can't find my hardback - no doubt it'll turn up when I'm searching for something else.

I shall prob. take my paperback to work with me tomorrow - too tired to re-read it now. But I will reiterate one point which I made above - this book is excellent, not least because of Kocher's analyses of Tolkien's non-Middle-earth fiction. In the chapter 'Seven Leaves', Kocher looks at not only FGH; SWM and the Bombadil poems, etc. - but also The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth; and Imram; and also The Lay of Aotrou and Itroun, which was ever published only once (in The Welsh Review, 1945 - it took me ages to find a copy of that).

Kocher's book is one that I would recommend to anyone who may have any interest in Tolkien.
