Thread Name: BS: New Tolkien
Subject: RE: BS: New Tolkien
I read both the Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales many years ago, and I didn't find them difficult, but a collection of interesting pieces that illuminated some of Tolkien's process - and I am no literary scholar. I'd worry more about how Christopher Tolkien managed to arrange the material to make a whole novel, however short, but I'm interested in reading bits I haven't previously seen.
