Hobbit Reader's Guide for Students now in Spanish - Xoanon @ 11:13 PST

Leandro writes:, Spanish member of Community, is proud to announce The Hobbit Reader's Guide for Students (in Spanish):

Spanish publishing house Espasa Calpe is going to publish The Hobbit's reader's guide for students (in Spanish), as part of the relaunching of their "Colección Austral", dedicated to the republishing of classical authors of universal literature. For the first time in this collection, Espasa will publish works of contemporary authors such as J.R.R. Tolkien.

This edition of The Hobbit contains, apart from the story of Bilbo Baggins and the map of Thrór, a J.R.R. Tolkien's biography, chronology and bibliography, a reader's guide for students with activities and a glossary of terms of Middle-Earth.

It is the first time that a reader's guide of a Tolkien work is published in Spanish. The guide has been edited by Paola Castagno (co-author of J.R.R. Tolkien: Preguntas Frecuentes (y no tan frecuentes), a book answering some F.A.Q.s about Middle-Earth and Tolkien 's work and life) and Leandro Pascual (webmaster of , a Spanish site devoted to J.R.R. Tolkien's work and Spanish member of Community).

The book will be released in October 2006 in Spain. [More]
