Once considered an oddly successful fictional sideshow, J. R. R.
Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings is now generally considered a mainstream literary phenomenon, a modern classic that reinvigorated the genre of the epic even as it reinvented the genre of the fantasy.
It has been enjoyed by millions of readers, many of whom have deemed it the most influential and important book of the last one hundred years (or, according to a 1999 amazon.com poll, the “book of the millennium”); its author, a shy Oxford academic with a staggering linguistic intellect, has in turn been called the “author of the century.” But few of these many readers have critically studied Middle-earth as a literary creation, looking beyond Tolkien's masterpiece both to his sources, like the Old English poem Beowulf, and to his other stories, like The Silmarillion, that are set in and around this fantastic land that is at once foreign and familiar. In this class we will do just this, seeking a greater critical appreciation of both the myth of Middle-earth and the man who created it.
