• Hi and welcome to my J.R.R. Tolkien's Life Test. This is not about the Lord of the Rings movies or about any specific work by J.R.R. Tolkien. This is about Tolkien as a whole human being, birth, family, work, writing and scholarship.

    Fun Tolkien Fact: It took J.R.R. two tries to get admitted to primary school at King Edward's school.
