Reviews of the Encyclopedia
and the Diary






























        This diary was completed at the beginning of 2008. I expect to maintain it online for the foreseeable future. Of course the entries, like the Encyclopedia itself, will slowly become dated as Tolkien scholarship moves on. Any communications will be welcomed, and edits for accuracy will be performed on request. - squire, June 3, 2010

I began this diary in November 2006 to record my impressions as I browsed the J. R. R. Tolkien Encyclopedia. This is not a discussion board, but I invite interested readers to send comments or entries to squire00@verizon.net. I reserve the right to edit entries, but will delete or revise the result if asked. Subjectivity is expected but so is brevity, decorum and moderation of expression.
        I myself wrote the Encyclopedia entries The East, The South, and The Treason of Isengard; and I previewed or edited about two dozen other entries written by N. E. Brigand (contributor of Dante and Letters of J. R. R. Tolkien), Entwife Wandlimb, Penthe, and my other colleagues at the TheOneRing.net's
Reading Room discussion forum. I will not be commenting on those entries, but will gladly post reviews of them by others.  - squire, Jan. 18, 2007
