John Ronald Reuel Tolkein

This page Is a tribute to the master himself, J R R Tolkien. He was a writer Extraordinaire, and a great story-teller. He created Four Of my personal favorite books, The Hobbit, And the Lord Of the Rings Trilogy. And from this great book, a poem.
Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for the Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

Later in this pages life, LotR will get it's own page, but for right now, it doesn't now, so stick with me here.
This is an excerpt from a different site, but i feel as if it could describe this stuff better than i ever could.
So here goes:" Tolkien's works are a uniquely fantastic mixing of mythology, medieval archetypes and monsters. Given his singular penchant for rich detail and complex backstories, the South African-born scribe would doubtless have been welcomed to the Nintendo or Atari payrolls, had be been writing 50 years later. But then there's also no denying the literary merit of remarkable Tolkien works like "The Hobbit" (written in 1937), a story that many of us read as a child and never quite forgot. When you add in the books that made up "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy, there's a good argument that Tolkien was greatly ahead of his time, anticipating our later obsessions with the works of Steven Spielberg or George Lucas."
