Re: [mythsoc] new arrival
- So, Ted, your original message wasn't really off-topic after all. Anything
related to the mental and emotional well-being of our _Mythlore_ editor is
ipso facto on topic. Hope mother, baby, and dad are all recovering
nicely. I was born a month early myself and it hasn't slowed me down!

- ENTS, ELVES, AND ERIADOR: THE ENVIRONMENTAL VISION OF J.R.R. TOLKIEN
by Matthew Dickerson and Jonathan Evans. Haven't had a chance to leaf
through it yet, but it's part of a series called Culture of the Land:
A Series in the New Agrarianism and apparently represents an
"ecocriticism" approach. I haven't read Dickerson's earlier book
FOLLOWING GANDALF, but Evan's essay on Tolkien's dragons in the
Timmons-Clark book (which I originally heard presented at the CFA in
Florida) is v. good. Shippey provides a brief afterword. No mention
of Dunsany in the index, alas.
