For almost four decades, Renée Vink, co-founder of
the Dutch Tolkien Society Unquendor and translator
of several of J.R.R. Tolkien’s works, has been studying
the Legendarium of Arda and writing about it. Among
her output are numerous contributions to the Society’s
magazine, an increasing list of scholarly essays, and
the monograph Wagner and Tolkien: Mythmakers. In
addition, she has edited several issues of Lembas Extra,
Unquendor’s biennial magazine.

This volume contains thirteen of her articles, focusing on various subjects
from translation, Elvish affairs, books by female authors with links to Tolkien’s
works, Jewish aspects of his Dwarves, fan-fiction, and last but not least, another
Wagnerian parallel. Nine of these, the oldest dating from the early 1990s,
were published previously in various journals or conference proceedings. The
remaining four are new.

Unquendor chairman since 2013, Jan van Breda, has provided an introduction
to the volume:

“The members of Unquendor have come to know Renée as an
insightful writer, a sharp thinker, and (if needs be)
a fierce debater on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien.”
