Few attempts have been made to arrive at a sober assessment of Tolkien's achievement as a literary artist, and even fewer to define for him a place in 20th century literature. This book provides an introduction to Tolkien's work which also aims to redress these deficiencies in earlier criticism. Two chapters are devoted to The Lord of the Rings , while a third explores the bewildering profusion of shorter works and the last considers the significance of Tolkien's life and career in the century of modernism. This book is designed to be of interest to students of literature and language.
