Research v. Literature - excerpt from The Sunday Times 14 April 1946This period lies between the publication of Tolkien's best known works: The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.  While Tolkien spent a great deal of time working on both The Lord of the Rings and the writngs that would eventually be published as The Silmarillion, he was also writing and publishing a wide variety of other materials.

Within this section of the site there will be something of interest, no matter what your interests - Farmer Giles of Ham, Leaf by Niggle, The Homecoming of Beorhtnoth, poetry, various "academic" items and some newspaper pieces.
