The Story of Kullervo

The Story of Kullervo

This month sees the publication of The Story of Kullervo, a so-called “new” work by J. R. R. Tolkien. Originally written when Tolkien was a young man and long before he wrote the works for which he is better known, it is a retelling of a story recounted in a Finnish epic. Here’s an interview I gave to a New York TV network about this book.

Those wishing to celebrate the legacy of Tolkien and his great friend C. S. Lewis should join me and a host of other speakers at the first annual Tolkien and Lewis Celebration in Nashville on Saturday, September 19th, the anniversary of the “long night talk” between Tolkien and Lewis on the nature of myth which led to Lewis’s conversion to Christianity.
