About Tolkien

Here at the All about J. R. R. Tolkien website we hope to educate people about the life and work of this wonderful author.

Although the fantasy genre of fiction was already extant before he began working on The Hobbit and his Lord of the Rings trilogy, his works resulted in a renewed popularity of this kind of work, and he is often referred to as the father of contemporary fantasy literature.

In the year two thousand and eight The Times newspaper listed him as the sixth greatest British author since nineteen forty five.
