1. Why is the LOTR such a famous book?
2. What Was JRR Tolkien, What else happend in his life?
3. Why did he write LOTR and invent middle earth?
4. Why is LOTR so sucessfull?
5. Why do you like LOTR so much?
6 The future of LOTR? Will it remain as popular?
Its for a essay, and help would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks For Reading
How long is your essay going to be? Your questions might take volumes to answer!
If you want some basic answers to start, maybe you could try the appendices on the Extended Movie DVDs - the sections on Tolkien and his life. I think most of the 'short' answers to your questions might be found there. Also bring up Tolkien on Wikipedia, if you haven't already.
Basic entry points, true, but a start if you want to ease your way in.
Btw welcome to the forum!
Odo had some excellent suggestions for places to get some basic background info, but you sound like you need some personal testimonies too. I think you might get some value from browsing some of the sub-forums here. I don't have time tonight, but I'll pop back when I do to try and answer a few of your questions.
