His early life.

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born on January 3, 1892, in Bloemfontein South Africa. At the age of four, his father died and together with his mother and brother Hillary, they relocated to England. His mother discovered that JRR had an appetite for books. He was already proficient in some languages at the age of four. She homeschooled JRR and Hillary, and by the time they were teenagers, they were conversant with Latin. Also, he and his cousins Mary and Marjorie Incledon made up their language; Nevbosh.

His service in World War 1

Tolkien joined the British Army when World War 1 reached Britain in mid-1914. He had delayed getting in the army because the law allowed him first to finish his degree at Oxford. He was enlisted as a second lieutenant for the Lancashire Fusiliers. In 1916 he was at the front line in France, and it was at Somme that he saw the impact of the grueling war. The events of the war have been chronicled in Tolkien.

His muse.

JRR fell in love with Edith Bratt. He married her at the age of 21 during his training at Staffordshire camp. He depicts Bratt as his inspiration for characters in some of his works, such as Arwen Evenstar in LOTR.

JRR loved to tell myths and fantasy stories. The most famous works included The Hobbit in 1930, but it was published in 1937. After it became a hit, he published a sequel 17 years later Lord of the Rings. His works continue to have a significant influence on films till today.
