J.R.R. Tolkien introduced the world to Middle-earth over fifty years ago, and the world has never been quite the same. The Lord of the Rings has become a cultural icon of the modern age. In an Amazon.com poll, readers chose it as the best Book of the Millennium!
The Lord of the Rings has not only delighted readers for years, but has sparked the imagination of thousands of writers, artists, musicians, and filmmakers. Its impact on the world will not be soon forgotten.
However, this story did not really even begin in the imagination of a talented Oxford professor. It began in older tales of adventure, which fueled that imagination and stirred the soul of an avid student of ancient literature. The Lord of the Rings drew many of its characters, themes, and adventures from stories that have touched the hearts of men for centuries: stories like The Iliad, Beowulf, and the Arthurian Romances.
In this study, you will learn more about The Lord of the Rings, but you will also learn more about the literary elements and influences that made it a masterpiece. In addition, you will learn about the thought processes of an author as he created a work of genius.
