He was Professor of Anglo-Saxon at Pembroke Colleg, Oxford, from 1925 to 1945 and then, until his retirement in 1959, Merton Professor of English Language and Literature. His chief interest was in the literary and linguistic tradition of the English West Midlands, especially in Beowulf. He wrothe The Hobbit in 1937 for his children and then in 1954-1955 trilogy The Lord of the Rings. The mytholigical beginnings of Middle-earth are represented in Slimarillion (1977). He is aslo known to the reading public as the author of Farmer Giles of Ham or The Adventures of Tom Bombadil. Tolkien died in England in1973.
I believe that The Lord of the Rings is a masterpiece. Tolkien was able to create not only a fantastic and unnforgettable tale, which draws you into the story, but he ceated Middle-earth history, language and fabulous maps. He made a whole new world which lives in our minds and we will never forget it.
