Description
J.R.R. Tolkien was a bookish, pipe-smoking, bike-riding Oxford don, most comfortable at home or with his "Inkling" friends like C.S. Lewis, but found himself suddenly famous when his Lord of the Rings trilogy reached an ever-widening audience during the counter-culture movement of the 1960s—even if Tolkien himself wasn't entirely happy about this. This wide-ranging and readable companion to Tolkien's life and work examines the impetus to fantasy, the author's experiences in World War I, the influence of his professional career as a philologist on his intricately imagined fantasy world, the challenges in filming Tolkien's vision, and his hugely significant legacy to the writers who came after him. It includes a critical view of Tolkien and his literary reputation, his profession as a linguist, how Beowulf and other works influenced him, and how he invented the nomenclatures and languages for Middle-earth.
