Maldon

(môl`dən), town (1991 pop. 14,754) and district, Essex, E England, on the Blackwater estuary. Maldon is a market town with iron foundries and other small industries. The Maldon area has long been known for its sea salt; salt has been harvested there for more than 2000 years. The 13th-century Church of All Saints has a unique triangular tower with a hexagonal spire, and the town hall dates from the 15th cent. Prehistoric traces have been found in the vicinity. A battle against Danish raiders was fought near Maldon in 991; the leader of the East Saxons, Byrhtnoth (or Brihtnoth), was killed. The battle was celebrated in one of the last Anglo-Saxon heroic poems, "The Battle of Maldon" (of unknown authorship).

Yet neither Lewis nor later scholars of Tolkien's work have paid much heed to the dialogic nature (1) of this great "structural invention" or acknowledged its heavy debt to Tolkien's reading and criticism of the Old English poetic fragment, The Battle of Maldon. The key to recognizing the polyphonic aspects of The Lord of the Rings as well as its structural inheritance from the medieval poem lies in an intermediate step: Tolkien's "The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth," first published in a 1953 volume of Essays and Studies.
