After a traumatic childhood in South Africa, during which he was kidnapped by a native and taken into the bush, Tolkien entered Exeter College, Oxford. His academic career was interrupted by service in the bloody trenches of World War I. After recuperating from war wounds, he returned to Oxford and lived most of his life as a scholar and professor in the cloistered academic community. Grotta examines how much of Tolkien's personal experience led to the creation of Middle Earth and its inhabitants. Quantity Available: 4.
