“In Britain ways are wild and long,
and woods are dark with danger strong;
and sound of sea is in the leaves,
and wonder walks the forest-eaves.”
The newest addition to my Tolkien collection: The Lay of Aotrou & Itroun. I read this in one sitting last night, and it is beautiful. It’s not a Middle Earth book; this short but lovely, haunting poem of Celtic mythology involves a childless lord who looks for help from a corrigan (evil fairy). I also enjoyed the extra bits of earlier poems, and seeing aspects of Tolkien’s creative process and self-editing. It’s...A NEW TOLKIEN BOOK AGH 😍😍😍😍😍😭😭😭😍
Are you planning to read this? Have you read any books of Celtic mythology? I haven’t read much of it, but I’m definitely intrigued to find some more now!
