  • It's sort of in between the two, I'd say. Less editorial commentary than most of the History of Middle-earth volumes, and unlike here, that series is arranged by the chronology of the texts it discusses rather than by their subject matter. Beren and Lúthien more like the Children of Húrin in following the thread of a single story, but at each point relying on or interpolating...

There are just too many...
