Impossible to describe in a few words, JRR Tolkien?s great work
of imaginative fiction has been labelled both a heroic romance and
a classic fantasy fiction. By turns comic and homely, epic and
diabolic, the narrative moves through countless changes of scene
and character in an imaginary world which is totally convincing in
its detail. Tolkien created a vast new mythology in an invented
world which has proved timeless in its appeal.
