The Adventures of Tom Bombadil
The Adventures of Tom Bombadil | J.R.R. Tolkien
105 posts | 33 read | 1 reading | 37 to read
This revised and expanded edition of Tolkiens own Hobbit-inspired poetry includes previously unpublished poems and notes, and is beautifully illustrated by Narnia artist Pauline Baynes. Here is something that no devotee of the Hobbit epic can afford to miss, while awaiting a further instalment of the history of these fascinating people a selection [of verses] offered as an interim report to those interested in Hobbit-lore, and to any others who may find amusement in this mixed bag of old confections. One of the most intriguing characters in The Lord of the Rings, the amusing and enigmatic Tom Bombadil, also appears in verses said to have been written by Hobbits and preserved in the Red Book with stories of Bilbo and Frodo Baggins and their friends. The Adventures of Tom Bombadil collects these and other poems, mainly concerned with legends and jests of the Shire at the end of the Third Age. This special edition has been expanded to include earlier versions of some of Tolkiens poems, a fragment of a prose story with Tom Bombadil, and comprehensive notes by acclaimed Tolkien scholars Christina Scull and Wayne G. Hammond.

I saw this a couple of weeks ago and am only just getting around to posting it. I thought the #FellowshipofTolkien might enjoy this “Spell in the Library” with a delightful poet, scholar, and priest, reading from and chatting about “The Adventures of Tom Bombadil.” Malcolm Guite is an absolute treasure… and he reminds me of a hobbit. 😁

3✨ I got to say I‘m not a fan of poetry, but this was a pleasant read. It was pretty short and the end of my version had commentary that at this time I opted out of reading. I like that I started this when it was raining because of this section. #FellowshipofTolkien @Daisey @JazzFeathers

#FellowshipOfTolkien

Why Tolkien's books always end on a sad note? 😢

I enjoyed this short collection a lot more than the first time that l read it, years ago. Maybe because now l can place it a little better among the other stories of Middle-earth.

A surprise number of them talk about journeys in a morm or another.
I didn't realise this the first time.

BarbaraJean That's interesting about the journey theme--very true! I read this a few years ago when we continued #LOTRChapteraDay, but I have to confess: I remembered VERY little. I do remember enjoying it more then, and I think part of that was the illustrations! I kind of wish I'd tracked down an audio version, as I think these poems would be better served that way than in print. I need to hear hobbits reciting/singing them at the Prancing Pony! 😉 6mo
JazzFeathers @BarbaraJean l agree. This must be marvelous in audio. 6mo

#FellowshipOfTolkien I‘ve been listening to the audio version of this and enjoying it. I‘ve appreciated the artwork that our hosts have posted, and I may buy a print copy of Tales from the Perilous Realm when I have the money.

CatLass007 @Daisey I haven‘t been collecting print for Tolkien, but I do want a copy of Letters from Father Christmas. And I might get Tales from the Perilous Realm as a gift for a friend and then borrow it. 😃 6mo

Reading "Cat" with my cat! This is a poem Tolkien wrote for his granddaughter, and I can't help but think of all of the other poems about cats that I've loved, from Bukowski to Baudelaire to Atwood. And of course, first in my mind is T.S. Eliot's cat poetry for his godchildren. Anyone out there have a favorite cat poem? #FellowshipOfTolkien #CatsOfLitsy #ColeCat

The Mewlips is a Tolkien poem I love, a departure from the bright, comic pieces elsewhere in this collection. I love that we get almost no physical description of the Mewlips themselves - we are told they have feet and "feeling" fingers - but the danger and fear are still so strongly communicated. It's just atmosphere and setting, and it's all the better for not knowing who or what exactly lives beyond the "slime", the "rotting river-strand".

JazzFeathers I always think that Tolkien had a gothic vein that occasionally comes to the surface. And he's quite good at it 😜 6mo

All right, nerds, let's do this!

When I first read LOTR (so many years ago now, good Lord!), I didn't get Tom Bombadil- who was he? Why the heck was this twee little thing intruding on what I thought would be a cool, dark adventure story? I have to say I've never quite warmed to Tom over the years, but here's hoping that this re-read of his adventures shows me something new! #FellowshipOfTolkien #TolkienBirthdayToast

What do you think, gals?
The Silmarillion is always a bit problematic. What if instead of Tolkien's major work we read his stories about Middle-earth published during his life and then we carry on with The Silmarillion with whoever wants to go on?

As this isn't the first time I've read these poems, I already knew I was going to like them. The added elements in this edition are the commentaries on every poem by the editors, which usually include earlier variants of the core poems, together with a very brief outline by Tolkien of a never realised, stand-alone Tom Bombadil story. Well worth the relatively modest cover price... 👇🏻👇🏻

Bookwomble ...but I'd have happily paid more for better paper, a larger format and colour illustrations. Still, 5/5🌟 6y

So, I'm reading Tolkien's poem "The Hoard" and thinking that the metre is strongly reminiscent of something else. What else do I know that's written in an Anglo-Saxon style with a caesura, or pause, in the middle of each line? Obviously, "What is He Thinking" by The Streets from their album "A Grand Don't Come for Free"! #booksandmusic https://youtu.be/9EQBDK99ak8

Another journey into Middle-earth, in the way that Tolkien imagined hobbits would write about it in simple verse. I've read these poems many times and always find them charming. I was absolutely sure I had them in their own volume, and was surprised to find I only had them as part of a larger collection, an omission rectified by buying this Scull/Hammond edition, with their extensive commentaries on each poem. I was a little disappointed...👇🏻

Bookwomble ... that I'd inadvertently ordered the pocket- book sized edition I'd previously seen and not bought because the paper quality is not brilliant, and Baynes's beautiful illustrations suffer for it. So, I'm still on the lookout for a 'nice' edition, but this one is certainly worth having because of the editors' ever- excellent Tolkien scholarship. 🧙🏼‍♂️🧚‍♂️🧝🏻‍♂️🧝‍♀️🧜‍♀️🧟‍♀️ 6y

This edition of Tom Bombadil was so beautiful both in English and Spanish. The pictures were also amazingly drawn. I will have to look for this edition to add to my own collection, for now though I have to return it back to the library.

#LotRChapterADay

And so it's over. I enjoyed it and l'm surprise. I normally have a very hard time with poetry, but l like this, l suspect because all poems are also a story.

There are funny ones and sad ones and l like all of them, especially the ones about Middle Earth.

l wasn‘t too keen on reading this, even considered not too. But l'm happy l did. It was her perfect read between LOTR and the Silmarillion.
Can't wait to start 😊

Jinjer Ditto. Not a big poetry reader but I could easily enjoy these. It was nice knowing that Sam and Bilbo and Frodo wrote some of them. 7y

This was fun light hearted break between the heavier works of LOTR & The Simarillion. It had lots of fun reminders of moments I loved in The Hobbit & LOTR. The songs got a little melancholy at the end, but I think that fits Middle Earth. Things there are often tinged with an air of melancholy. #lotrchapteraday

#lotrchapteraday Today‘s poem/song had such a feeling of melancholy to it. Why is it that the sea always seems to evoke this feeling, esp in Tolkien‘s works, & yet at the same time it also has such a pull? I guess it‘s that the sea is the greatest unknown on our planet...it‘s the greatest liminal space we have to hand, & we can never quite know how we will come out on the other side. We only know we will be changed.

JazzFeathers I agree. The sea is a power to reckon with, a deep mystery, but ut also brings the promice if something new and welcome. Thus was really such a sad poem. I think that Tolkien takes up the view of our ancesrirs, to whome the sea was where our world met and touched the world beyond 7y

Tommy thinks this is the perfect #CatsOfLitsy poem, and that all cats are fearsome beasts. He also thinks that "the fat cat on the mat" is obviously a reference to his brother, who is known for being fat and lazy. Tommy, on the other hand, is known for being clumsy and loving to snuggle. He is also known for his weird, scarred eyes, and his extreme derpiness... ?
