Auden who famously reviewed the final volume in  , Tolkien himself made use of the term "trilogy" for the work  though he did at other times consider this incorrect, as it was written and conceived as a single book. Wollheim , science fiction editor of the paperback publisher Ace Books , claimed that The Lord of the Rings was not protected in the United States under American copyright law because Houghton Mifflin, the US hardcover publisher, had neglected to copyright the work in the United States.
Tolkien took issue with this and quickly notified his fans of this objection.
Tolkien undertook various textual revisions to produce a version of the book that would be published with his consent and establish an unquestioned US copyright. On September 4, , the novel debuted on New York Times' Paperback Bestsellers list as number three, and was number one by December 4, a position it held for eight weeks. Hammond and Christina Scull, under supervision from Christopher Tolkien, studied and revised the text to eliminate as many errors and inconsistencies as possible, some of which had been introduced by well-meaning compositors of the first printing in , and never been corrected.
Further corrections were added to the 60th Anniversary Edition in Posthumous publication of drafts[ edit ] From to Christopher Tolkien published the surviving drafts of The Lord of The Rings, chronicling and illuminating with commentary the stages of the text's development, in volumes 6—9 of his History of Middle-earth series.
Main article: Translations of The Lord of the Rings The novel has been translated, with various degrees of success, into at least 56 languages.
Because The Lord of the Rings purports to be a translation of the fictitious Red Book of Westmarch , with the English language representing the Westron of the "original", Tolkien suggested that translators attempt to capture the interplay between English and the invented nomenclature of the English work, and gave several examples along with general guidance.
Main article: Reception of J. Tolkien While early reviews for The Lord of the Rings were mixed, reviews in various media have been, on the whole, highly positive and acknowledge Tolkien's literary achievement as a significant one. The initial review in the Sunday Telegraph described it as "among the greatest works of imaginative fiction of the twentieth century".
Auden , an admirer of Tolkien's writings, regarded The Lord of the Rings as a "masterpiece", further stating that in some cases it outdid the achievement of John Milton 's Paradise Lost.
Both the characters and the work itself are, according to Jenkyns, "anemic, and lacking in fibre". Hugo Dyson complained loudly at its readings.
Apparently, I didn't even need the Vicodin because that pedophile Tom Bombadil put me right to sleep. Seriously, were it not for the fact that it is written by Tolkien, I would have hated this book. It was so unbelievably dull. There were parts, that to a Tolkien amateur like me, didn't have a whit of relevance or anything interesting to add to the plot namely, say, the first pages of the book.
Seriously, what the fuck is up with the farmer and Tom Bombadil? The plot was all sorts of disjointed. Some parts just didn't make any sense. Tolkien is a linguist at heart, and it shows, because all the famous quotes we know from him are just sound bytes.
In context, sometimes they don't really make any sense. All the poems and songs are in there to sound pretty, and frankly, they bored the fuck out of me. For instance, in the middle of a serious dinner party where the company is just trying to decide what to do about the ring surely a simple task , all of a sudden little Frodo stands up and solemnly announces.
All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall be woken, A light from the shadows shall spring; Renewed shall be blade that was broken, The crownless again shall be king I was like what the fuck, man?! Where did that come from?
It makes absolutely no sense in the context of the scene. Oh, sure, it's an inside thing on how Aragorn was the secret king, but nobody knew that! Everyone, elf, hobbit, dwarf, and me would have thought he was completely high on some elven grass. The Fellowship of The Ring pdf. Brand New. Apr 03, , View original item. Sell one like this.
