An absolute genius of a writer who created probably the most complex and complete fantasy world ever, 'Middle-earth', based on European mythology. Well known for Lord of the Rings, which has been made into a movie. He also created many languages.
Tolkien's Middle-earth is the ultimate fantasy. The world is amazing. His languages are beautiful. Worship it.

I don't think warned people against marraige, he himself was a married Catholic.

People who say he was racist are just wrong. He wanted to create a mythology for England, 'cos they didn't really have one of their own ( check the facts, King Aurthur is a Welsh legend before the English nick him, Tolkien would have been well aware of this). As such, It would have been fairly hard to create a black/Asian charachter to fit an ancient/ near medievel english myth.

Anyway, back to definition, he was a writer who created the second highest selling book ever ( the first being the Bible), and a very good book it is too, the only people who say it's boring, are the ones who never read past the bit with Tom Bombadil.

Tolkien; pronounced - tol(toh) ki(key) en(in) - not pronounced "tolkeen".

Tolkien's are often described as;

"A (tolkien) is marginally afraid of feet" - Kody
"wears good clothes, stereotypically handsome" - Harry
"an absolute mongo!" - Ashleigh
"Caught a vibeeee baby are you coming for a ride" - Martyna
"one of my best friends" - Aimee
"tolkien moment" - Scott S
"musical genius!!" - Amy
"friend" - Scott F
"got big hair" - Madday
"caring, generous, curly haired" - Felicity
"cool, easygoing, really kind, good heart, attractive, sweet, good with kids, funny :)" - Lola

Tolkiens - as you can see - are not bad people. Tolkiens are loved, and love others very much.
Tolkiens are quick tempered, confrontational but always honest and never means what he says negatively.
Take care as 'tolkiens' are rather emotional, strong willed but can be easily effected by people.

Tolkien's favourite quote - "don't cry, its a waste of good suffering."
