Om författaren

A writer of fantasies, Tolkien, a professor of language and literature at Oxford University, was always intrigued by early English and the imaginative use of language. In his greatest story, the trilogy The Lord of the Rings (1954--56), Tolkien invented a language with vocabulary, grammar, syntax, visa mer even poetry of its own. Though readers have created various possible allegorical interpretations, Tolkien has said: "It is not about anything but itself. (Certainly it has no allegorical intentions, general, particular or topical, moral, religious or political.)" In The Adventures of Tom Bombadil (1962), Tolkien tells the story of the "master of wood, water, and hill," a jolly teller of tales and singer of songs, one of the multitude of characters in his romance, saga, epic, or fairy tales about his country of the Hobbits. Tolkien was also a formidable medieval scholar, as evidenced by his work, Beowulf: The Monster and the Critics (1936) and his edition of Anciene Wisse: English Text of the Anciene Riwle. Among his works published posthumously, are The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún and The Fall of Arthur, which was edited by his son, Christopher. In 2013, his title, TheHobbit (Movie Tie-In) made The New York Times Best Seller List. (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

Kort biografi
John Ronald Reuel Tolkien (3 January 1892 – 2 September 1973) was an English writer, poet, philologist, and academic. He was the author of the high fantasy works The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

He served as the Rawlinson and Bosworth Professor of Anglo-Saxon and Fellow of Pembroke College, Oxford, from 1925 to 1945 and Merton Professor of English Language and Literature and Fellow of Merton College, Oxford, from 1945 to 1959. He was at one time a close friend of C. S. Lewis—they were both members of the informal literary discussion group known as the Inklings. Tolkien was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II on 28 March 1972.

After Tolkien's death, his son Christopher published a series of works based on his father's extensive notes and unpublished manuscripts, including The Silmarillion. These, together with The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, form a connected body of tales, poems, fictional histories, invented languages, and literary essays about a fantasy world called Arda and Middle-earth[b] within it. Between 1951 and 1955, Tolkien applied the term legendarium to the larger part of these writings.

While many other authors had published works of fantasy before Tolkien, the great success of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings led directly to a popular resurgence of the genre. This has caused Tolkien to be popularly identified as the "father" of modern fantasy literature or, more precisely, of high fantasy. In 2008, The Times ranked him sixth on a list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945". Forbes ranked him the fifth top-earning "dead celebrity" in 2009.

I och med Konungens återkomst, när delar av brödraskapet äntligen nått Gondor, är det kanske läge att ta upp ett par till av de sämre detaljerna i nyöversättning (sådana är ju alltid lätta att hitta); då tänker jag inte på rena tryckfel som jungfru Aragon, utan på i alla fall två medvetna val: först, att Gollum hela tiden pratar om sin »dyrgrip«: hur tusan skall han kunna väsa på det? Sedan: varför »drots«? Det finns ju trots allt redan kopplingar till Frankerriket genom Pippin och Riddermark, och även om den kanske inte är heltigenom lyckad, varför inte göra som Ohlmarks och fortsätta? Eller, om inte, varför inte det mer exakta »riksföreståndare«?

Sedan kan jag inte riktigt gilla att Eowyn alltid skall kallas jungfru; då känns Ohlmarks »prinsessa« återigen som ett lämpligare val, och det känns i viss mån bättre att likt Ohlmarks hitta på egna ord på svartspråk än att försöka få oss att tro att »Sharkû« kan förvanskas till »Farsan«.

Nå, berättelsen är fortfarande bra, i synnerhet de delar som har med belägringen av Gondor att göra: de kan fortfarande fånga en och tvinga en att läsa vidare –vilket kan ha något att göra med filmerna. Tyvärr är en av översättningens svårare göromål att fånga den sortens retorik som männen från Rohan använder, i synnerhet med deras alliterationer, och även om det heroiska i deras anfall på Mordors härar kvarstår så tappar det ändå lite. Den rena desperationen i Frodos och Sams färd framgår dock fortfarande klart, liksom hur det till slut inte är någon bullrigare dygd än nåden som gör att den slutar väl.
