The US Del Rey paperbacks are so much less satisfying than the UK trade paperbacks from Harper Collins. *sigh*

There is some solid poetry in this volume which pairs with The Silmarillion nicely. Too bad they are unfinished. Whenever he came back to revise them he started over at the beginning so the best poems have no endings.
