Essays and Studies 1953; Being Volume Six of the New Series of Essays and Studies Collected for The English Association, edited by Geoffrey Bullough.

 

Published by John Murray, London, in 1953 (1st edition). Hardcover, 114 pages.

 

This volume is notable for including the first appearance in print of J.R.R. Tolkien’s ‘The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth Beorhthelm's Son’.  It is inspired by an Old English fragment about The Battle of Maldon. It is written in the form of an alliterative poem, but is also a play, being mainly a dialogue between two characters in the aftermath of The Battle of Maldon. The work was accompanied by two essays, also by Tolkien, one before and one after the main work.

 

Other pieces are: 'Family Honour in the Plays of Shakespeare's Predecessors and Contemporaries' by Edward M. Wilson; 'Some Sixteenth and Seventeenth Century Writers on the Plague' by Herbert G. Wright; 'John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester, and the "Right Veine of Satire" ' by Vivian de S. Pinto; 'The Augustan Pantheon: Mythology and Personification in Eighteenth Century Poetry' by Rachel Trickett; 'The Integrity of "Biographia Literaria" ' by George Whalley; and 'Language, Style, and the Anglo-Welsh' by Gwyn Jones.

 

Yellow cloth boards with red titles.  Wear & some marking to boards & spine.  Ex-library copy with the usual library markings, otherwise pages generally clean and tightly bound.

 

Scarce first edition.
