J.R.R. Tolkien Was Born 120 Years Ago print
January 3, 2012

J.R.R. Tolkien, author of The Lord of the Rings was born 120 years ago on January 3, 1892. He studied at the Oxford University where his interest soon turned towards ancient languages. This was the time Tolkien first made up languages of his own, that he later incorporated in his novels. He suffered serious injuries during World War 1, and while in hospital, he started writing down stories he invented. He told stories about hobbits to his children, and seeing the success decided to put them in a book. The Hobbit was published in 1937 and became a great success, and the readers requested the sequel. After several modifications and re-writing, The Lord of the Rings trilogy was published and with its unique style and language is one of the most popular stories of all times.

The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings trilogy is available in the web shop of Hungaropress - now 25% cheaper than the retail price!
