Repackaged to feature Tolkien's own painting of the Tree of Amalion, this collection includes his famous essay, 'On Fairy-stories' and the story that exemplifies this, 'Leaf by Niggle', together with the poem 'Mythopoeia' and the verse drama, 'The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth', which tells of the events following the disastrous Battle of Maldon. Fairy-stories are not just for children, as anyone who has read Tolkien will know. In his essay On Fairy-Stories, Tolkien discusses the nature of fairy-tales and fantasy and rescues the genre from those who would relegate it to juvenilia. The haunting short story, Leaf by Niggle, recounts the story of the artist, Niggle, who has 'a long journey to make' and is seen as an allegory of Tolkien's life. The poem Mythopoeia relates an argument between two unforgettable characters as they discuss the making of myths. Lastly, and published for the very first time, we are treated to the translation of Tolkien's account of the Battle of Maldon, known as The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth. Tree and Leaf is an eclectic, amusing, provocative and entertaining collection of works which reveals the diversity of J.R.R. Tolkien's imagination, the depth of his knowledge of English history, and the breadth of his talent as a creator of fantastic fiction.… (lisätietoja)

This is not your usual Tolkien. It isn't hobbits and dragons. This is what you read if you want to know what motivated Tolkien to write and what processes he used to create his unforgettable universes, which have captivated the minds and enthralled the senses of millions. It outlines how he humbly looked upon himself as the "sub-creator" of worlds. This is, in fact, a complex philosophy that only authors or hopeful authors will entirely understand. It is the blueprint for Tolkien's creative inventions. Therefore, any author or anyone who is truly a fan of Tolkien NEEDS to read this work. Both the essay on sub-creation and Leaf by Niggle are complementary works that explain Tolkien's approach to creation. So, it is appropriate they are arranged together, in this book. Because this work is the origin and source of all Tolkien's creation (or describes that origin) it is my favorite work of this great master. ( )

"On Fairy-Stories" was written by Tolkien in 1939, as a lecture given at the Universty of St. Andrews, in Scotland and first published in 1947.
It was republished in 1965 together with the story "Leaf by Niggle" in the short book Tree and Leaf, which is available on Internet Archive (archive.org).
Later editions also included:
Mythopeia (a poem sent to C.S.Lewis)
The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth Beorhthelm's Son (originally published in 1953 in Essays and Studies) ( )

An interesting an eclectic collection, all enjoyable, and I think casting light on Tolkein himself.

'On fairy stories' defends and justifies why a scholar should value and write such things.

The 'Old English' poem "The homecoming of Byrhtnoth" seems to echo Tolkein's experience of the the British WW1 private soldier - I remember reading in a WW1 autobigraphy ("Goodbye to all that"??) that when tin-hats first were issued soldiers had a strange medieval appearance. (I also think that Frodo and Samwise echo a young WW1 English subaltern and his batman).

(Now living close to Maldon, I wryly salute the statue of Byrhtnoth when sailing past http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Maldon )

Ahem - getting back to the subject, I particularly like the gentle and beguiling 'Leaf by Niggle', that I felt was rather ruefully autobiographical. ( )
