Item Description

J.R.R. Tolkien: Creator of Languages and Legends

Take a journey with Great Life Stories and meet some of the world's most interesting people. Each title, written in a compelling narrative style, introduces the reader to the personal hopes, aspirations, and struggles as well as the professional goals, successes, and setbacks of its chosen subject. Also included is information about the history of the times in which the subjects lived, providing the necessary historical context to fully understand these important figures and their contributions. Sidebars and a timeline provide additional historical connections and insights into the subject's life.

J.R.R. Tolkien is known all over the world for his creative works of fiction, The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings, but not everyone knows the story of the man behind these fantastical tales. Born in South Africa, Tolkien moved with his mother to the English countryside at the age of three, after the death of his father. Orphaned at the age of twelve, he spent much of his youth okaying with words and exploring foreign languages. Tolkien spent much of his life studying and teaching languages and literature, and had a special interest in the northern European epics and sagas from medieval times. In part, these myths and legends inspired his fictional world of hobbits, elves, fragons, and orcs. More than thirty years after his death, his books continue to inspire and captivate readers of all ages.
