The 15 essays consider such topics as Goths and Romans in Tolkien's imagination, forests as places of transformation in The Lord of the Rings, hobbit preference for round windows and the Arts and Crafts movement, cultural materialism and the reverse discourse of the wild in The Hobbit, Tolkien and Dante's earthly paradise enculturing nature, the party tree and its roots in the Spanish Civil War, and the past.
