Oh my that would be the craziest thing to happen to the Tolkien Estates. :lol:

I saw this on my facebook newsfeed today, it's an article found the The Hobbit Movie site regarding a gold ring found at an Iron Age site called "Dwarf Hill" hundreds of years ago that was most likely the inspiration of Tolkien's One Ring. It comes with a curse and great story.

Here is the article entitled Is this the original One Ring?.

New illustrated version of The Hobbit is now available. The illustrations are from a university student by the name of Jemima Caitlin. See some pictures and read a bit more on The Hobbit Movie site.

I think that this is the artist who is featured in the 2014 Hobbit calendar, too.

une très jolie édition, c'est charmant de voir de nouveaux talents se consacrer à l'oeuvre de Tolkien, qui ne se démode pas! combien de copies avons-nous en termes de films fantastiques depuis le ''Seigneur des Anneaux!! c'est une épidémie, mais je reste fidèle au tout 1er, c'est mon préféré!

Finally some positive Tolkien news. His translation of Beowulf, that has taken on mythical status, will be published in May. Exciting! :caffeine:
Hwaet! :P

Out of doubt, out of dark, to the day's rising
he rode singing in the sun, sword unsheathing.
Hope he rekindled, and in hope ended;
over death, over dread, over doom lifted
out of loss, out of life, unto long glory.

I'm a little confused by this. I'm pretty sure my nephew's high school class used Tolkien's translation maybe ten years ago. He was pretty excited by it. So can it really be that this hasn't been published before? Or is this just a newer publication?

Merry I know that Tolkien's essay re. Beowulf are published however, I didn't think this translation in its entirety was.

Here's a paragraph from John Garth's article about the new Beowulf from The Guardian:

One of the best writers on Tolkien, Verlyn Flieger, identifies Beowulf as representing one of the two poles of Tolkien's imagination: the darker half, in which we all face eventual defeat – a complete contrast to the sudden joyous upturn of hope that he also expresses so superbly. In truth, it is his ability to move between the two attitudes that really lends him emotional power as a writer.


I thought this was a great summary of Tolkien--although I wish they had identified the source of his hope! (:-o<

Here's a nice little photo-essay, to which we are connected by TOR.n:

Nothing new, really, but the pictures are interesting!

Well, very interesting! I've got a bit of a dizzy spell reading that N. Cage thinks something is "philosophically profound", but I'm glad that the Pope likes Tolkien!
