Annotation

J.R.R. Tolkien, in this extraordinary, historically important recording, leads listeners with prose, poems, and songs into the fantastic world of “The Hobbit” and “The Fellowship of the Ring,”

This audio is based on a tape that Tolkien made for his friends in August 1952. He had been working on “The Lord of the Rings” for more than fourteen years by then and had almost given up hope of ever seeing it in print. But making this recording reassured him of his talent and prompted him to send his manuscripts to a former pupil who had become a publisher. The result was one of the most popular and influential series of novels of the 20th century!

This recording includes the poem “The Mirror of Galadriel,” originally meant for inclusion in Book Two of “The Fellowship of the Ring,”

Author Biography

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien (1892-1973) was a major scholar of the English language, specializing in Old and Middle English. Twice Professor of Anglo-Saxon (Old English) at the University of Oxford, he also wrote a number of stories, including most famously “The Hobbit” (1937) and “The Lord of the Rings” (1954-1955), which are set in a pre-historic era in an invented version of the world which he called by the Middle English name of Middle-earth.
