В своих произведениях писатель поднимает темы добра и зла, любви, одиночества и потерь. Его "Марсианские хроники" - это повествование о безжалостности и ограниченности землян, об их ненасытности и готовности истребить друг друга, о бездушии и жестокости, нетерпимости и нежелании слышать других. Но это не может продолжаться бесконечно. И технический прогресс их не спасёт. В конце концов, они сами себя накажут. Но есть у Брэдбери и проблеск надежды на возрождение нового мира, разумной, созидательной цивилизации. Это произведение завоёвывает читателей поколение за поколением, подчиняя их своей магической притягательностью и каждый раз открывая на своих страницах что-то новое. Текст сокращён и адаптирован.

Unavailable for more than 70 years, this early but important work is published for the first time with Tolkien’s ‘Corrigan’ poems and other supporting material, including a prefatory note by Christopher Tolkien.
Set ‘In Britain’s land beyond the seas’ during the Age of Chivalry, The Lay of Aotrou and Itroun tells of a childless Breton Lord and Lady (‘Aotrou’ and ‘Itroun’) and the tragedy that befalls them when Aotrou seeks to remedy their situation with the aid of a magic potion obtained from a corrigan, or malevolent fairy. When the potion succeeds and Itroun bears twins, the corrigan returns seeking her fee, and Aotrou is forced to choose between betraying his marriage and losing his life.
Coming from the darker side of J. R. R. Tolkien’s imagination, The Lay of Aotrou and Itroun, together with the two shorter ‘Corrigan’ poems that lead up to it and are also included here, was the outcome of a comparatively short but intense period in Tolkien’s life when he was deeply engaged with...
