The Fall of Arthur

‘Arthur eastward in arms purposed / his war to wage on the wild marches, over seas sailing to Saxon lands, from the Roman realm ruin defending.’

These are the opening lines of The Fall of Arthur, the only venture by J.R.R. Tolkien into the legends of Arthur King of Britain.

The Fall of Arthur has just been named as the Best Poetry title in Goodreads' Best Books of 2013. The book is the world first publication of a previously unknown work by J.R.R. Tolkien, and tells the extraordinary story of the final days of England’s legendary hero, King Arthur.

The poem is accompanied by three scholarly essays by Christopher Tolkien, one of which draws tantalizing links between The Fall of Arthur and The Silmarillion.

This brand new book is available in both £14.99 hardback and £60 deluxe slipcased edition for collectors.
