User reviews LibraryThing member Foxen. This is a really good anthology of scholarly essays about Tolkien edited by one of my college professors. I've been meaning to read it ever since I took her class on mythology, several years ago now, and I'm really glad I finally got around to it.

As characters contemplate the landscape and inhabitants of Middle-earth in these special "moments of attention" they gain spiritual strength and renewed hope and, she argues, perform what Tolkien describes as the activity of "Recovery" in his essay "On Fairy-stories.
