John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born in the Orange Free State, (now South Africa), on the third of January eighteen ninety two. He died in Bournemouth, England on the second of September nineteen seventy three. He led an interesting life during interesting times, serving in WW1, and working for most of the rest of his life as an academic. His work has been the inspiration for so many writers and artists.
