Christopher Tolkien and describing the contents of the book. Tolkien would try to write something about time travel, but he never completed it. It is just a fragmentary beginning of a tale, including a rough structure and several chunks of narrative, including four entire chapters dealing with modern England and Númenor, from which the entire story as it should have been can be glimpsed. The scheme was of time-travel by means of ‘vision’ or being mentally inserted into what had been, so as to actually re-experience that which had happened. It explores the theme of a ‘straight road’ into the West, now only in memory because the world is round. List of things named after J. This page was last edited on 14 August 2017, at 16:09.
