The Ring of Words: Tolkien and the Oxford English Dictionary Paperback - Review
About this Item: 1st edit. Condition: Very good. Language: English. Brand new Book. The Ring of Words describes the powerful and unique relationship between Tolkien's creative use of the English language in his fictional works and his professional work on the Oxford English Dictionary. The authors have filleted their subject of some less digestible portions, a decision which might be welcomed by those who shiver at the thought of multi-volume dictionaries or fantasies, but which seems a trifle unfortunate in a book that deals with both.
It would have been illuminating to hear just how Tolkien established the cognates and antecedents for his OED etymologies, but an adequate explanation of the principal methods of comparative philology is missing. However, The Ring of Words successfully reunites the academic and creative aspects of Tolkien, often seen as at odds particularly by fellow academics who felt he had squandered his talent on childish stories.
His academic publications, though sparse, were enduring: his chief solo contribution to lexicography, A Middle English Vocabulary , is here shown to be a monument of erudition and sheer sweat. OED 4. HarperCollins ebook. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt ebook.
