Discover the remarkable life of J. R. R. Tolkien....

Free bonus inside!

J. R. R. Tolkien, an orphan in love with words, spent most of his life as an unassuming Professor of Literature at Oxford studying and teaching old languages. During his time there, he created his very own languages and a mythological world, Middle-earth. Middle-earth was inhabited by Hobbits, Dwarves, Elves, and other fascinating creatures. It was a world that became almost more real to Tolkien than the one he lived in.

Tolkien’s two masterpieces, The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, have set the standard in mythological literature. Translated into more than 70 languages, the books and their battles of good and evil are as relevant today as they were when Tolkien first wrote them.

Discover a plethora of topics such as:

  • From South Africa to the English countryside
  • Tolkien’s forbidden love
  • Tolkien during World War I
  • Years at Oxford
  • The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings
  • Late life and death
  • And much more!
