Eve of an Anniversary

Mae Govannen

A big thank you to you for visiting at this time.

Next year will be the start of many commentaries and accounts of Tolkien and his life in Oxford.

It is important though to note the place that Leeds and the North had in his published literary and academic progress.

In June of 1923 A Northern Venture was published by the Leeds University English School Association.

In October 1923 the poem The Cat and the Fiddle was published  in Yorkshire Poetry.

By December in 1923 a 'clean copy' of 'Sir Gawain and the Green Knight' had been sent for review
