      You are excused, sir.  I’ve hoped to see Michael Drout’s edition for about ten years now.  I imagine Michael has, too.
      Is there any progress on an edition of J.R.R. Tolkien’s poetry with commentary?  Such a thing has been spoken of since Peter Jackson was a sunspot on the far horizon.

      Whoops!  That was meant to be a private message.  Sorry about that.

      "Let's hope Tolkien's Beowulf will follow."
      Dreamer!  If there is one action of the Tolkien Estate that I really don't understand, it is blocking Drout's work on this.  But have you seen any indication that they have reversed course?
