  Adapted to Peter Jackson’s Academy Award-winning trilogy of films.

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien (1892-1973), beloved throughout the world as the creator of
The Hobbit (first published 1938) and The Lord of the Rings (first published 1954-5), was a professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford, a fellow of Pembroke College, and a fellow of Merton College until his retirement in 1959. His chief interest was the linguistic aspects of the early English written tradition, but even as he studied these classics he was creating a set of his own.
