Poems and Stories is a compilation of some of the lesser-known writings of J. R. R. Tolkien released in 1980 by George Allen & Unwin (UK) and in 1994 by Houghton Mifflin (North America).

Contents

  • The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth Beorhthelm's Son, a play in alliterative verse on the historical Battle of Maldon.
  • "Farmer Giles of Ham", a novella about an English farmer who encounters a dragon.
  • "Smith of Wootton Major", another novella, set partly in Faerie and partly in the area near Oxford.
  • "Leaf by Niggle", a highly allegorical short story often (including here) published in tandem with the essay "On Fairy-Stories" as Tree and Leaf.
  • The Adventures of Tom Bombadil, a collection of poems claiming to be "of hobbit origin" (and the only item in the compilation that is directly related to Middle-earth and The Lord of the Rings).
