John Ronald Ruel Tolkien (03.01.1892 – 02.09.1973) was an English philologist, writer and university professor who is best known as the author of the Trilogy of the Lord of the Rings (The Company of the Ring; The Two Towers; The Return of the King), as well as many other work. In fact, in addition to the Trilogy, Tolkien’s published fiction includes The Hobbit, The Silmarillion and other posthumously published books (most of them were compiled from Tolkien’s notes by his son Christopher) covering a period that goes from 1917 (the first version of The Sirmarillion) to the death of the author in 1973. Together, all books, are a connected body of tales, fictional histories, invented languages and literary essays about an imagined world called Arda, and Middle-earth (derived from Old English word “middangeard”, that is the land inhabitable by human), in particular, loosely identified as an “alternative” remote past of our own world..
