Paul Strohm is Anna S. Garbedian Professor of Humanities at Columbia University. He was previously J.R.R. Tolkien Professor of English Language and Literature at the University of Oxford, and, before that, taught at Indiana University for many years.

A short review cannot do justice to the immense variety and innovation of this volume... The range of references is excellent and the standard of work is consistently high.
