One of our most renowned writer, linguistic and phlogist from late 1800s,
John Ronald Ruel Tolkien, was a man of fantastical mind represented by
written works; author of the epic fantasy works like The Hobbit and Lord of
The Rings. This remarkable man is behind the languages and creatures of an
extraordinary universe. A brilliant linguist and fantasy writer.
Tolkien’s Family originated in the East Prussian. He was born on 3rd
January, 1892, in Bloemfantein, South Africa, when poverty had covered the
region. Tolkien took a vast interest in learning and inventing new languages,
like. Tolkien could read by the age of four and could write fluently soon
afterwards. He was home schooled until he was 12. That was when his
mother died and he was sent to live with a Catholic priest, Fr. Francis Xavier
Morgan. He knew 35 different tongues, both ancient and modern. Tolkien
himself, invented a new and more complex language called Nevbosh. The
next constructed language he came to work with, Naffarin, would be his own
creation.Around 10 June 1909 he composed "The Book of the Foxrook", a
sixteen-page notebook. Tolkien became a devout Roman Catholic. He
married Edith Mary, an Englishwoman in 1916.
Tolkien completed The Lord of the Rings in 1948, close to a decade after the
first sketches. The Hobbit was just one of the stories he created. Originally
written for his children, it came to the attention of a publisher and was an
instant hit with young and old. Tolkien created an entire world for his
stories, Arda, where Middle Earth is located. He also made an entire
language for them called "Elvenlatin".
During his life in retirement, from 1959 up to his death in 1973, Tolkien
received steadily increasing public attention and literary fame. Both
Tolkien's academic career and his literary production are inseparable from
his love of language and philology. He died on 2nd
September , 1973. After
his death, he received the Hugo award and the Locus award for the best
dramatic presentation and Best Fantasy Novel.
