J.R.R. Tolkien: Architect of Middle Earth
Daniel Grotta (au). John Ronald Reuel Tolkien (1892-1973), author of “The Hobbit” & the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy, is one of the 20th century’s most beloved writers. His highly unusual, imaginative works have sold millions of copies worldwide. And yet, surprisingly little is known about his personal life. He lived most of his life as an Oxford scholar in a cloistered academic community. As a child in South Africa, Tolkien was kidnapped by a native & taken into the bush. As a youngster in Birmingham, England, Tolkien was raised by a Catholic priest. And as a young adult, he lived through the bloody horror of the trenches of WW1. How these experiences shaped Tolkien’s incredible imagination is just one of the areas covered here. “A fascinating study of Tolkien’s personal history.”
