Venthony BS: Tolkien Trivia (64* d) RE: BS: Tolkien Trivia 13 Sep 02

Do you all realize (you do of course) that Dr. Tolkien kept all these plot threads and "historical" details in his HEAD as more or less a second job while teaching Chaucer, etc., to undergrads?

What can ya say? Even Wystan Auden was impressed, and that's saying quite a lot. After 30 years of reading this stuff over and over, I'm still humbled.
