JRRT biography.

Postby Mingbearer » Mon Mar 29, 2010 4:34 pm

I just spotted a copy of Tolkien's biography in my local library.

Well done to them for having a copy.

I've gone to the Eagle and Child quite a few times, and it's quiet: lacking in students (hooray!) and even more lacking in tourists (hooray! hooray!).

I wonder if JRRT ever did a 'Boromir' there at closing time. 'Here comes C.S. Lewis! It must be Tuesday!'

Why Tolkien wrote The Hobbit. A 1968 interview:

"I would like an abundance of peace. I would like full vessels of charity. I would like rich treasures of mercy. I would like cheerfulness to preside over all." - St. Brigid of Kildare
