The Mythopoeic Society Reviews: Tolkien and Wales

Jones and Tolkien became friends when Tolkien visited Aberystwyth in his role as external examiner for the University of Wales (1944-5) and they had much in common; both were academics who wrote scholarly and creative pieces and they shared an interest in the Celtic literary tradition.
It is thanks to Jones that Tolkien's Lay of Aotrou and Itroun was published, as it appeared in The Welsh Review in December 1945.
