What a shame that Tolkien didn't finish writing his version of the final battle of King Arthur! Left with only drafts, we are told the story until the point of the siege of Camelot - barely the beginning of the battle - but this taste of the story is enough to show Tolkien's mastery of traditional alliterative verse form and a unique story perspective. I often find when reading the Arthurian myths that the characters are a bit flat due to a focus on events/deeds rather than dialogue or emotion, so I was surprised and pleased that Tolkien provided insight into various characters - especially Mordred, Guenevere, and Lancelot. Guenevere seemed an odd choice for Tolkien to embellish, since he rarely seems to value female characters, but in thise case I'm glad that he broke from his norm. ( )

There are several sections comprising this book and my responses to them were varied.

Starting at the beginning there is the poem - or incomplete fragment there-of. It was never finished, like so many of Tolkien's projects. In my opinion, most of Tolkien's best work was left in an unfinished state at his death: The best stories are all in the Silmarillion, no complete version of which was extant at the time of Tolkien's demise. Instead a heap of fragments in prose and various verse forms co-exist, showing an enormous evolution over pretty much the whole of Tolkien's adult life.

I love Arthurian literature, and and I love Tolkien, so I was excited when this was released. Like other reviews have mentioned, the poem is only a small part of the book, and the rest is commentary by Christopher Tolkien. I found the poem to be interesting, and fun to read out loud. I was confused by his choice of making Guinevere a little manipulating of Lancelot, because I think in most other texts their tryst is a mutual thing. I liked Christopher's section placing his father's poem in the Arthurian tradition, of where he is getting his material from, and how he changed it to make it his own. I also enjoyed the section about the poem's relation to the Silmarillion, but I did not enjoy the section about the Evolution of the Poem, as it was confusing and dull. I was confused at why he would have so many drafts of the poem, but then when I read the final section where J.R.R. Tolkien is talking about alliterative verse I realized there are a lot more rules to follow than just "string words that start with the same letter together" Some of his discussion of the metre was a little dense for me, and I didn't understand exactly what he was talking about with "head rhymes" "staves" and the emphasis on different syllables.

Even in its fragmentary and unfinished form — about 40 pages of text, a bit more than four cantos of what was evidently intended to be a much longer narrative poem — “The Fall of Arthur” is recognizably the work of J. R. R. Tolkien.

"The Fall of Arthur" is a fascinating work, though perhaps more for the Tolkien completist than the casual "Lord of the Rings" fan.

It is well known that a prominent strain in my father's poetry was his abiding love for the old 'Northern' alliterative verse, which extended from the world of Middle-earth (notably in the long but unfinished Lay of the Children of Húrin) to the dramatic dialogue The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth (arising from the Old English poem The Battle of Maldon) and to his 'Old Norse' poems The New Lay of the Volsungs and The New Lay of Gudrún (to which he referred in a letter of 1967 as 'a thing I did many years ago when trying to learn the art of writing alliterative poetry').

How Arthur and Gawain went to war and rode into the East.
