Are the new Tolkien books worth reading
For love of language
In addition to the few readers who bought these books out of a love of language or out of scientific curiosity, it should be Tolkien collectors in particular who have an increased interest in these works, which, thanks to their really successful design, also make a wonderful picture on the bookshelf . But not only externally, but also in terms of content, the works are of high quality and extensive and therefore in no way to be described as sham packs. At most, one could accuse the publishing house and book trade of deliberately playing with the expectations of consumers by deliberately classifying these works in the fantasy genre and not under “literary studies”. But of course even the most sincere bookseller has an economic interest, which he should be granted. And without the big name “J. R. R. Tolkien “such demanding works would certainly not have mixed up with the best-selling bestsellers.
But what is the risk? In the worst case, a fantasy fan suddenly becomes enthusiastic about linguistics because he has unsuspectingly accessed it. At the end of August 2018, “The Fall of Gondolin”, the last “new” Tolkien will appear, because with this work the sources of material have finally been exhausted. But that is certainly not the end of days. It remains to be seen which literary pearls the upcoming television series adaptation of Tolkien's Middle-earth source material by Amazon Studios will bring us in a few years. And the German Tolkien publishing house Klett-Cotta need not be concerned about the lack of supplies, after all there is still the twelve-volume historical-critical edition series "The History of Middle-earth" by J. R. R. Tolkien, which has been waiting for a translation for many years. "The Fall of Gondolin" has its place on my Tolkien shelf and will definitely not be the last Tolkien book. And that's just as well.
