The Heroes of Tolkien Summary


The Heroes of Tolkien: An Exploration of Tolkien's Heroic Characters, and the Sources that Inspired his Work from Myth, Literature and History by David Day

In J. R. R Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit and The Silmarillion, Middle-earth endured cataclysmic wars and critical battles, causing great men, women and mystical creatures to arise, influence and shape the course of its history.

Here in this book, Tolkien expert David Day examines the complexities surrounding Tolkien's portrayal of good and evil, and analyses Middle-earth's most celebrated heroes and the literary, historical and mythological sources that inspired their creation.
