J.R.R. Tolkien's lifelong fascination with medieval texts and languages gave him a unique vision and endless inspiration for his tales, and his broad interests made possible his creation of faery worlds, as well as the cultures and characters that make his books as engaging today as they were more than seventy-five yearsago. This clear and thoroughly researched biography of the creator of The Hobbit is accompanied by magical illustrations that recall the mystery of Tolkiens worlds.
