FROM THIS EPISODE

J.R.R. Tolkien: Author of the Century (Houghton Mifflin)
With the film of Lord of the Rings hard upon us, Professor Shippey recalls Tolkien and his interest in language and epic poetry. As a special treat, Shippey sings Tolkien's school song, which, disguised, makes its way into the Sagas of Middle Earth.
