Jonathan Goh gives readers a taste of high fantasy with his poetic epic portraying a heroine’s quest to earn her grieving father’s affection, embarking on a journey of magic and misadventure. Boasting 15,000 exquisitely crafted lines of rhyming couplets, “Eludoran” (published by Xlibris AU) has been recognized for the record of longest poem in Singapore by the Singaporean Book of Records.

This retelling pays tribute to J. R. R. Tolkien's unfinished poem "The Lay of Leithian" It follows a young fox who feels underappreciated by her father, prompting an impossible quest to gain his attention. “Eludoran” blends elements of tragedy with themes of optimism and hope for the next generation. The author believes that many people are familiar with the feeling of being unappreciated by their parents or jealous of an especially successful older relative.

These issues are raised with the character of Lorelei; an easily relatable protagonist navigating Goh’s expansive fantasy setting.
