Example text

TOLKIEN’S DOUBLE WORLDS Oxford was in a state of tranquillity. It appeared to be undisturbed by the surrounding world, when most people in Europe and the United States were talking about the cold war. East and west were loaded concepts, which had been given specific contents after the Second World War. Oxford may also have been in a time of waiting from a different point of view. R. Tolkien, professor of English, had published The Hobbit, originally considered to be a children’s book or a fantasy book for young people.

Indd 18 1/24/2011 3:08:35 PM CH A P T ER 3 Like Lightning from a Clear Sky When I came to know Oxford in the 1950s, I was struck primarily by the unique atmosphere. The streets were teeming with students, most of them wearing their academic gowns. The dons and fellows with their longer gowns often cycled with their bicycle clips at the bottom of their trousers. All the students seemed to do their things at the very last moment and have only one aim in view, either a lecture or a contest in rowing, fencing, rugby, soccer, or cricket.

It is not surprising that Tolkien has been placed so highly in these and similar polls. It is far more surprising that views in critical debates have been so different and filled with heated opinions and feelings. Either people seem to love or hate his books. This has often led to interesting discussions, even if Tolkien’s friends obviously outnumber his enemies. However much Tolkien’s imagination grew and his sources of inspiration, in nature, in the world of his youth, and in literature, began to be stored in his receptive brain for future purposes, it was not until around 1913 that he began thinking of and noting down anything about The Silmarillion.
