Prose versions have been selected to introduce Tolkien's modern readers to such marvel-filled works as Beowulf, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, and the Prose Edda of Snorri Sturluson - three classics that every fantasy fan will enjoy on their own merits. Many will also appreciate seeing firsthand how these works, and others in this book - from Old English, Middle English, Old Norse, the Celtic languages and Finnish - served as inspiration for elements in Tolkien's great imaginary world of Middle-earth dragons, elves, dwarves, monsters, magical swords and heroes."--BOOK JACKET." ;
