Lewis's review of The Lord of the Rings is definitely worth reading, his review of The Hobbit less so. There are lots of references to the other in each man's collected letters, though (for obvious reasons) they rarely wrote to each other. I'm currently reading Volume 3 of Lewis's letters, and last night I read the note Lewis wrote to Tolkien after reading the printed copy of The Fellowship of the Ring:
"I have been trying--like a boy with a bit of toffee--to take Vol. I slowly, to make it last, but appetite overmastered me and it's now finished: too short for me. The spell does not break. The love of Gimli and the departure from Lothlorien is still almost unbearable. What came out stronger at this reading than on any previous one was the gradual coming of the shadow--step by step--over Boromir."
Good luck with your paper.
