Tolkien's Lost Chaucer

John M. Bowers

  • Reveals the story of J. R. Tolkien's unpublished and previously unknown book hidden in the Oxford University Press archives
  • Explores Tolkien's annotated proofs and accompanying notes for the 'Clarendon Chaucer' edition that he abandoned in 1951 after almost 30 years of work
  • Draws upon a number of previously unpublished writings by Tolkien including unpublished letters and lectures
  • Shows Tolkien as a brilliant, insightful thinker about Chaucer's language and storytelling and shows the ways that his decades-long work on Chaucer inspired key episodes in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
