Brief Histories, Prose: non-fiction, History

A highly readable companion to the author of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings saga

A very readable overview of Tolkien and his work, incorporating a brief biography, an examination of the books and a look at the process of filming his work, including The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings saga. It explores how Tolkien's background as a medievalist and linguist informed the languages of Middle-earth, the influence of his Catholicism and Tolkien's legacy in fantasy.

A timely book to coincide with the first of Peter Jackson's two keenly awaited Hobbit films.
