Condizione sovraccoperta: Fine. 1st Edition. 1st American edition, 1st printing ; xii, 180 pages ; 22 cm ; ISBN: 0395331935; 9780395331934 LCCN: 82-12011 ; LC: PR1714; Dewey: 829/.1 ; OCLC: 8668515 ; English; Old English text with English translation. ; brown cloth with gold lettering, in brown, gold and white dustjacket ; "nalyzes the depictions of the fifth century legendary heroes, Hengest and Finn, in the Anglo-Saxon poems, Beowulf and The fight at Finnesburg" ; "[Tolkien's] most significant contribution to Anglo-Saxon studies is to be found in his lectures on the story of Finn and Hengest, two fifth-century heroes in northern Europe. The story is told in two Old English poems, Beowulf and The Fight at Finnsburg, but told so obscurely and allusively that its interpretation has been a matter of controversy for more than a hundred years. As elucidated by Tolkien, the story is a classic tragedy of divided loyalties, of vengeance, blood and death. It had the added interest that the Hengest who plays the leading role in it was very probably the Hengest who led the first Germanic invasion of Britain, and t hat the events it describes immediately preceded that first invasion. Tolkien's original and persuasive solution of the many problems raised by the story ranges widely through the early history and legend of the Germanic peoples. until now his views have been known only to his colleagues and his former students. They now appear in print for the first time. This book will be of interest not only to students of Old English but to all those interested in the history of northern Europe and of Anglo-Saxon England. Admirers of The Lord of the Rings will be anxious to see how Tolkien handled a story which he did not invent. It was Professor Tolkien;s own wish that the prepration for publication of this work be undertaken by Alan Bliss, who studied under him from 1946 to 1948. From three separate sets of lecture notes, ranging in date from before 1930 to after 1960, Professor Bliss has pieced together a coherent statement of Tolkien's latest views expressed entirely in his own words." ; very scare Tolkien collectible ; FINE/FINE.

Finn and Hengest, The Fragment and the Episode, by J.R.R. Tolkien, edited by Alan Bliss. Published by Houghton Mifflin in 1983, this is the First American Edition, 1st Impression. From the blurb, Tolkien's 'most significant contribution to Anglo-Saxon studies is to be found in his lectures on the story of Finn and Hengest, two fifth-century heroes in northern Europe. The story is told in two Old English poems, Beowulf and The Fight at Finnesburg, but told so obscurely and allusively that its interpretation has been a matter of controversy for more than a hundred years. As elucidated by Tolkien the story is a classic tragedy of divided loyalties, of vengeance, blood and death; it had the added interest that the Hengest who plays the leading role in it was very probably the Hengest who led the first Germanic invasion of Britain, and that the events it describes immediately preceded that first invasion.' 'It was Professor Tolkien's own wish that the preparation for publication of his work on Finn and Hengest should be undertaken by Alan Bliss, who studied under him from 1946 to 1948. From three separate sets of lecture notes, ranging in date from before 1930 to after 1960 Professor Bliss has pieced together a coherent statement of Tolkien's latest views expressed entirely in his own words.'
