Description
John Ronald Reuel Tolkien (1892-1973), author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, is one of this century's most beloved and enigmatic writers. The man who was embarrassed by success lived most of his life as an Oxford scholar in the surrounds of a cloistered academic community. Tolkien, the child in South Africa, was kidnapped by a native and taken into the bush. Tolkien, the youngster in the English industrial city of Birmingham, was raised by a Catholic priest. Tolkien, the young adult, lived through the bloody horror of the trenches of World War I. How much of Tolkien's personal experience fired his incredible imagination is just one of the areas that Daniel Grotta attempts to uncover.
