Balfrog has just left Hobbiton.
Tolkien & English Renaissance Drama

Looks like Ms. Seth's series is finally coming to an end. The series which has expanded beyond Tom Bombadil, Goldberry and understanding of the Barrow incident has also included her views on the origin of The Hobbit. From her past Match me a Bilbo in London article she has put forward that the source of 'Bilbo' was linked to Thomas Dekker an Elizabethan and Jacobean playwright. For this latest essay she has explored where and when Tolkien may have bumped into Dekker's works as they appear to lie outside his known area of expertise.
