Tolkien and Me - by Tom Shippey

Tolkien scholar Professor Tom Shippey, author of J.R.R. Tolkien: Author of the Century, sees Tolkien's work as "a deeply serious response to what will be seen in the end as the major issue of his century: the origin and nature of evil," and places Tolkien firmly in the great tradition of 20th-century literature.
