Honestly, I'm not a huge fan of that one, either [In reply to] Can't Post

Atherton's book, to me, almost has the opposite proble from Olsen's. It almost tries too hard too be scholarly, while missing the spirit of the work. I got more out of Shippey's discussion of The Hobbit in Road and (as Squire noted), Kocher's book, then in both of these books together.

Edit: I zeem to have replied to the wrong post. This is in response to your question about Atherton.

'But very bright were the stars upon the margin of the world, when at times the clouds about the West were drawn aside.'
