Jim | 16 comments The description of this book at https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/4... is for the wrong book.. "This Far Land,", edited by Robert Giddings is a collection of articles about J.R.R. Tolkien's fiction. However, the description on this page is for a book about William Butler Yeats that was published as part of the "Irish Literary Studies Series". I would recommend that this be corrected.

Jim | 16 comments P.S. I'm afraid I don't have a formal description of "This Far Land" to offer in its place. However, I do see that the following page has a list of articles in the book, and the names of their authors: http://tolkiengateway.net/wiki/J.R.R....

(I own the book and can verify that this list is correct) Perhaps that would be useful information to use instead?
