Thanks for the recommendation. I finished Les Miserables (?) yesterday, and I just had a birthday in which I got $75 in Barnes and Noble gift cards so you have remarkable timing. I might just pick it up tomorrow.
Sorry, I have not been on much lately. Things seemed to stall on the forum for a while. However, I have been looking around tonight, and it appears that I have a lot of catching up to do. Hope all is well on your end.
I may have an extra copy of it at my parents house. I will be going there in a few weeks, and I can take a look. I seem to remember there being 2 copies, but that was several years ago. I can't promise anything though.
I read that essay in Tolkien and the Critics. It is a book of essays that came out I think in 1962. I have my dad's old copy of it, and I think it has been out of print for quite some time. However, you could probably find it online. I highly recommend reading it, though. It is a very pleasant read, and it is cool to see how several aspects of Middle Earth were interpreted without any knowledge of The Silmarillion.
I have a quick question for you. I am curious about your name. I believe that this is a reference to Tevildo, Prince of Cats. Do you know if Tolkien was in some way making a reference to Tybolt from Romeo and Juliet with this name. I remember when I read it in the Book of Lost Tales, I thought it was really weird, and off the beaten path.
