    Should come as no surprise. I've just been reading The History of the Hobbit, which contains much of its early textural history, and there's quite a lot of detail on how Tolkien came to regret some of his earlier work. He seems to have decided much of it was cringeworthy in fact.

    Perspectives change.

    And incense the power of man with God
    But myrrh is the bitter taste of death
    And the sour-sweet smell of the upturned sod,
