J.R.R. Tolkien Quiz
In the realm of fantasy literature, one man’s name stands above all others. He is regarded as one of the most pivotal pioneers of the genre to the point that he is called its modern father in some circles.
J. R. R. Tolkien was fascinated by Europe’s ancient past. This included the myths and exaggerated legends of the continent’s history. Finding himself embroiled in the midst of contemporary history, Tolkien came face-to-face with a number of tragic circumstances. These contemporary evils further informed his writing. When he put pen to paper, he ended up creating tales that were timeless in spite of their clear influence from the legends of old. Tolkien said that writing in this way helped him to make sense of the world.
When his stories hit the shelves, they steadily became accepted as new staples of fantasy literature. Thanks to Tolkien’s dedication to his craft and his brilliant mind for details, he ended up crafting an entire alternate universe with its own religion, politics, and millennia of history. Tolkien himself had no idea how profound of an impact his writing would have on the world of literature.
