Lord Of the Rings, The

Lord Of the Rings, The

by J R R Tolkien

The Lord of the Rings is an epic high fantasy novel written by philologist and Oxford University professor J. R. R. Tolkien. The story began as a sequel to Tolkien's earlier, less complex children's fantasy novel The Hobbit (1937), but eventually developed into a much larger work. It was written in stages between 1937 and 1949, much of it during World War II.
The Hobbit

The Hobbit

by J R R Tolkien

story of Bilbo Baggins, a hobbit who is caught up in the affairs of
wizards. His journey through Mirkwood and the climactic confrontation
with the dragon Smaug served as the launching point for Tolkien's
transformative trilogy, The Lord of the Rings. Many of the
essential elements of Tolkien's classic saga have their roots in this
children's book.
