Examining the novels and other writings, Andrew Blake shows how J.R.R. Tolkien’s mastery of language, his establishment of a fully-fledged alternative mythology, and his brave way of looking at difficult questions have helped to inaugurate a new way of writing which re-established “fantasy” as a late 20th century genre.
