Shelves: tolkien , fantasy , children-of-all-ages , poetry , 3-star-reads Tom Bombadil is such an enigma. I mean who exactly is he? Some Tolkien fans would argue that he is Eru, the creator of all life within Tolkiens Middle Earth, though I think somewhat differently. He breaks any sense of definition with his odd existence: he simply is.

The Adventures of Tom Bombadil is a collection of poetry by J. Tolkien , published in ISBN The book contains 16 poems, only two of which deal with Tom Bombadil , a character most famous for his encounter with Frodo Baggins in The Fellowship of the Ring , the first volume in Tolkien's best-selling The Lord of the Rings.
The rest of the poems are an assortment of bestiary verse and fairy tale rhyme. The publication was illustrated originally by Pauline Baynes and later by Roger Garland.
An audiobook of the story was produced in , narrated by Derek Jacobi. A edition featured the original artwork and poems along with a new Introduction, 'commentary' section that discusses the history of each poem, and secondary early versions of the poems. It also included an appendix with an unreleased fragment of prose story about Bombadil, and two additional poems: " Once Upon A Time " and " An Evening in Tavrobel ".
The character Tom Bombadil, named originally after a child's toy  , appeared in these poems before his inclusion to the world of The Lord of the Rings. The book, like the first edition of The Fellowship of the Ring , is presented as if it is an actual translation from the Red Book of Westmarch , and contains some background information on the world of Middle-earth which is not found elsewhere.
There is uncertainty about its canonical status, since the information presented about Middle-earth in the poems is simply considered folklore among the Hobbits. Sign In Don't have an account?
