A children's classic and a prelude to 'The Lord of the Rings'. 'Smaug certainly looked fast asleep,when Bilbo peeped once more from the entrance.He was just about to step out on to the floor when he caught a sudden thin and piercing ray of red from under the drooping lid of Smaug's left eye.He was only pretending to sleep! He was watching the tunnel entrance. . . Whisked away from his comfortable,unambitious life in his hobbit-hole in Bag End by Gandalf the wizard and a company of dwarves,Bilbo Baggins finds himself caught up in a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Magnificent,a large and very dangerous dragon.Although quite reluctant to take part in this quest,Bilbo surprises even himself by his resourcefulness and his skill as a burglar! J. R.R. Tolkien began writing 'The Hobbit', or 'There and Back Again',as a Professor of English Language and Literature at Oxford University. Tolkien's creative perspective was born from a childhood spent briefly in South Africa and then in rural England,a short but wretched tour during World War I,and an avid fascination with German philology - the study of the structure and historical development of languages.Originally billed as a children's book - being written for his own children - 'The Hobbit' attracted instant critical acclaim and a varied audience and has been wildly popular since its initial publication in 1937.Tolkien built upon the tradition of fantasy literature developed by George MacDonald,Lewis Carroll,and the folk tales of Arabian Nights amongst others,by inventing a new language of Elvish and making it accessible for modern-day readers.Such creativity brought rave reviews and critical acclaim for 'The Hobbit',which sold out of its original print run of 1,500 copies within three months after publication. Since then and subsequently,it is recognised as a literary classic,and won the Keith Barker Millennium Book Award in 2000 for the most significant children's book published between 1920 and 1939. Tolkien has published a number of other children's stories including 'Farmer Giles of Ham', 'Roverandom' and 'Letters from Father Christmas'.His books have been translated into over 30 languages and have sold many millions of copies worldwide.In 1972 he was made a CBE and received an honorary Doctorate of Letters from Oxford University.He died on 2 September 1973 at the age of 81.
