Author Profile JRR Tolkien

“Tolkien  was an English writer, poet, philologist, and university professor who is best known as the author of the classic high-fantasy works The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion.

He served as the Rawlinson and Bosworth Professor of Anglo-Saxon and Fellow of Pembroke College, Oxford, from 1925 to 1945 and Merton Professor of English Language and Literature and Fellow of Merton College, Oxford from 1945 to 1959.[1] He was at one time a close friend of C.

Tolkien was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II on 28 March 1972.” From Wikipedia.
