2013 The Making of Middle-Earth : A New Look Inside the World of J. R. R. Tolkien – Hardcover – Christopher A. Snyder – Sterling Publishing Co


Synopsis
J. R. R. Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings” consistently tops polls as the best-loved literary work of all time. Now medieval scholar and Tolkien expert Christopher Snyder presents the most in-depth exploration yet of Tolkien’s source materials for Middle-earth–from the languages, poetry, and mythology of medieval Europe and ancient Greece to the halls of Oxford and the battlefields of World War I. Fueled by the author’s passion for all things Tolkien, this richly illustrated book also reveals the surprisingly pervasive influence of Tolkien’s timeless fantasies on modern culture.
