      P. S.: The 'Tolkien didn't revise' misnomer also showed up a few years ago in a piece Ronald Hutton wrote about JRRT and CSL's pagan influence.

      Anyone else here remember the amusing little exchange between JRRT and Ch. Moorman? Moorman had a theory that Malory never had the chance to revise his work and asked Tolkien if the same was true of him, only to be told otherwise in no uncertain terms.

      Thanks for posting the interesting link, Wendell
