On September 2, 1973, at the age of 83, we lost J. R. R. Tolkien. Many fans mourned for this awesome author.
They say that Tolkien was a teacher, and he was grading papers. On a corner of one of his students paper, there was a little about a Hobbit. We don’t know where the student thought it up, but Tolkien took the name Hobbit and created The Hobbit. Many years later, Tolkien wrote The Lord of the rings. When he died, his son Christopher Tolkien, finished The Silmarillion, and helped publish many more of Tolkien’s works, like the new Beren and Luthien, that came out this year.
If it weren’t for Tolkien, many wonderful stories might have never been. And even if someone else got the Idea, they could never have written it it Tolkien.
Farewell, Tolkien, creator of Hobbits.
