Conventions and Abbreviations

Conventions and Abbreviations Because there are so many editions of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, citations will be by book and chapter as well as by page number (referenced to the editions listed ahead).

Abstract

Because there are so many editions of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, citations will be by book and chapter as well as by page number (referenced to the editions listed ahead). Thus a citation from The Fellowship of the Ring, book 2, chapter 4, page 318 is written (FR, II, iv, 318). References to the appendices of The Lord of the Rings are abbreviated by appendix, section, and subsection, so subsection iii of section I of appendix A is written (RK, Appendix A, I, iii, 321). The Silmarillion indicates the body of stories and poems developed over many years by Tolkien; The Silmarillion indicates the volume first published in 1977. Abbreviations Works by Tolkien ATB B&C The Adventures of Tom Bombadil. London: Allen & Unwin, 1962; Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1963. Beowulf and the Critics. Ed. Michael D. C. Drout. Rev. 2nd ed. Medieval and Renaissance Texts and Studies 402. Tempe, AZ: Arizona Medieval and Renaissance Texts and Studies, 2011. The Children of Húrin [title as on title page:] Narn i Chîn Húrin: The Tale of the Children of Húrin. Ed. Christopher Tolkien. London: HarperCollins; Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 2007.
