J. R. R. Tolkien: A Biography,
Humphrey Carpenter, 1977.
Because today’s reading does not feature any text from Tolkien, I chose not to include an excerpt of the reading. While I think the author, Humphrey Carpenter, did an outstanding job with the reading selection — indeed, the entire biography is excellent — it’s the kind of passage that is best enjoyed if you just relax, sit back and listen as we visit Professor Tolkien at his home.
A 1967 visit to Prof. Tolkien in his study.
