The Treason of Isengard

The Treason of Isengard - J.R.R. Tolkien It is wonderful to see the Professor at work as he struggles to figure out what really happened in the tale he is bringing forth. Some ideas I am glad he abandoned, others I am sorry did not make it into print. Some are from the beginning almost the same was the published version, some are wildly different. As a fellow sub-creator. I find these volumes fascinating as he muses about what happens because I have a lot of the same wonderings about my own series I am working on. The tale that unfolds must be brought to its readers correctly and we, as the conduit through which the story comes, must be faithful to how it truly was and not we think it was. Recommended for anyone who wants to get inside the mind of a writer, especially one as creative as Tolkien's.
