Re: New Tolkien Arthurian poem to be released!

I'm very curious about this. I enjoyed The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun, and I'm curious how he dealt with the Matter of Britain. It seems to be be a much longer poem than was rumored; reports had "The Fall of Arthur" as 954 lines, but 200 manuscript pages would work out to something many times that. I'm especially curious about the editorial matter that's supposed to draw links between Arthur and Middle-Earth. I wonder if there will be a matching edition of Tolkien's Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

After this, I think the only major Tolkien work left to be published is his translation of Beowulf.
