Few literary figures have been explored so thoroughly as J.R.R. Tolkien. The vein is perhaps running a little thin by now, but we have Tolkien's original Arthur poem, sadly only a fragment, but bolstered considerably in bulk by the critical apparatus marshalled by his son, Christopher. We have the text, and an essay by the original writer himself about the Anglo Saxon poetic form he employs. In addition the volume contains as many footnotes as the text will support, and an extensive analysis of what was completed, along with Christopher's concept of where JRR was going when he was interrupted by the publisher asking for "Another book about hobbits" at the beginning of WWII. The actual poem is quite good, replete with new titles for other plowers in the field of Arthuriana, and the rest of it is perhaps useful for the advanced student. ( )

What a shame that Tolkien didn't finish writing his version of the final battle of King Arthur! Left with only drafts, we are told the story until the point of the siege of Camelot - barely the beginning of the battle - but this taste of the story is enough to show Tolkien's mastery of traditional alliterative verse form and a unique story perspective. I often find when reading the Arthurian myths that the characters are a bit flat due to a focus on events/deeds rather than dialogue or emotion, so I was surprised and pleased that Tolkien provided insight into various characters - especially Mordred, Guenevere, and Lancelot. Guenevere seemed an odd choice for Tolkien to embellish, since he rarely seems to value female characters, but in thise case I'm glad that he broke from his norm. ( )

There are several sections comprising this book and my responses to them were varied.

Starting at the beginning there is the poem - or incomplete fragment there-of. It was never finished, like so many of Tolkien's projects. In my opinion, most of Tolkien's best work was left in an unfinished state at his death: The best stories are all in the Silmarillion, no complete version of which was extant at the time of Tolkien's demise. Instead a heap of fragments in prose and various verse forms co-exist, showing an enormous evolution over pretty much the whole of Tolkien's adult life.

Even in its fragmentary and unfinished form — about 40 pages of text, a bit more than four cantos of what was evidently intended to be a much longer narrative poem — “The Fall of Arthur” is recognizably the work of J. R. R. Tolkien.

"The Fall of Arthur" is a fascinating work, though perhaps more for the Tolkien completist than the casual "Lord of the Rings" fan.

It is well known that a prominent strain in my father's poetry was his abiding love for the old 'Northern' alliterative verse, which extended from the world of Middle-earth (notably in the long but unfinished Lay of the Children of Húrin) to the dramatic dialogue The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth (arising from the Old English poem The Battle of Maldon) and to his 'Old Norse' poems The New Lay of the Volsungs and The New Lay of Gudrún (to which he referred in a letter of 1967 as 'a thing I did many years ago when trying to learn the art of writing alliterative poetry').
