Wayne G. Hammond & Christina Scull, "The J.R.R. Tolkien Companion and Guide: Reader's Guide & Chronology".



All'American Bookstore di Milano (via Camperio angolo piazza Cairoli) avevano una copia di questo libro:

Wayne G. Hammond & Christina Scull,
The J.R.R. Tolkien Companion and Guide: Reader's Guide & Chronology
.
Londra: Harper Collins, 2007

Su richiesta, sono comunque disponibili ad ordinarne altre copie e, dietro congruo compenso monetario, penso possano anche fornire indizi sulla persona malvagia ed egoista che si è accaparrata il libro per prima [fischietta tra sé e sé].

Insieme alla tanto discussa Tolkien Encyclopedia, il libro è considerato una delle opere critiche più importanti dell'anno ed è a cura della stessa coppia di studiosi già autori del The Lord of The Rings Reader's Companion (na serie di note al testo che fanno un po' da corrispettivo a ciò che Douglas A. Anderson ha fatto con Lo Hobbit annotato) e di J.R.R. Tolkien: Artist & Illustrator, uno dei pochi testi critici che affrontano la genesi, il significato e l'ispirazione delle opere grafiche di Tolkien.

Il Tolkien Companion si presenta sicuramente come un prodotto di un certo pregio: un cofanetto di due volumi rilegati con copertina rigida, ciascuno di 1.200 pagine circa ed in formato 23x15 cm: la Reader's Guide e la Chronology.
All'interno della Reader's Guide, con sovracopertina in nero e argento su oro, tutto ciò che avreste desiderato sapere su Tolkien ma non avete mai osato chiedere: in ordine alfabetico, tutte le sue pubblicazioni (dalla saggistica alla narrativa alle brevi poesie) e le loro vicende compositive ed editoriali, i luoghi e le persone con cui ha avuto contatti nella sua vita.
La Chronology, con copertina in nero e oro su argento, contiene una curatissima ed imponente cronologia della vita e delle opere di Tolkien.
In poche parole, uno strumento critico fondamentale sia per l'appassionato che per chiunque a sua volta si dedichi allo studio e alla critica letteraria del grande autore, in Inghilterra già oggetto di studi universitari da molti anni.
