What is the Lord of the Rings all About?
Lord of the Rings is the saga of a group of reluctant heroes who set out to save their world from evil. Their worlds and creatures are drawn from Tolkien’s extensive knowledge of ‘Philology and Folklore’.
At the age of 33, Fredo Baggins received a magic Ring of Invisibility from his uncle Bilbo. Frodo learns that the ring has the power to control the entire world and corrupt its owner.
A fellowship of hobbits, dwarfs, elves, and men is formed to destroy the ring, they cast it into the volcanic fires of the Crack of Doom. They were opposed by the evil Sauron and his Black Riders.
The Hobbit and the Lord of the Ring are considered to be the start of the genre known as ‘high fantasy’, and these works have had an enormous influence on that genre as a whole.
