Summary
"The work of J.R.R. Tolkien has had a profound effect on contemporary fiction and filmmaking. Often disparaged by critics, Tolkien's fiction created a market for the "fantasy trilogy" and his academic work represents an innovative contribution to the field of philology... This book describes how Tolkien's imaginative landscape continues to entertain and inspire, drawing new generations to Middle-earth"--
