Sobre l'autor

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, mostra'n més 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) mostra'n menys

Biografia breu
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After Tolkien's death, his son Christopher published a series of works based on his father's extensive notes and unpublished manuscripts, including The Silmarillion.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.

El hobbit (título original en inglés: The Hobbit) es una novela fantástica del filólogo y escritor británico John Ronald Reuel Tolkien. Fue escrita por partes desde finales de los años 1920 hasta principios de los años 1930 y, en un principio, tan sólo tenía el objetivo de divertir a los hijos pequeños de Tolkien.[1] No obstante, el manuscrito de la obra aún sin acabar fue prestado por el escritor a varias personas y finalmente acabó en manos de la editorial George Allen & Unwin. Dispuestos a publicarla, los editores pidieron a Tolkien que finalizara la obra y El hobbit fue publicada el 21 de septiembre de 1937 en el Reino Unido.

Es la primera obra que explora el universo mitológico creado por Tolkien y que más tarde se encargarían de definir El Señor de los Anillos y El Silmarillion. Dentro de dicha ficción, el argumento de El hobbit se sitúa en el año 2941 de la Tercera Edad del Sol,[2] y narra la historia del hobbit Bilbo Bolsón, que junto con el mago Gandalf y un grupo de enanos, vive una aventura en busca del tesoro custodiado por el dragón Smaug en la Montaña Solitaria.

Debido al éxito que tuvo y a las buenas críticas que recibió, los editores pidieron a Tolkien una continuación. Bautizada como El Señor de los Anillos, su cambio a un tono alejado del infantil provocó que El hobbit tuviera que ser modificado ligeramente para que ambas historias coincidieran mejor.[3]

Tras la publicación de la criticada edición argentina conocida como El hobito,[4] Ediciones Minotauro compró los derechos de las obras de Tolkien y publicó una traducción mejorada de la novela en España en 1982 y en Argentina en 1984.[5] [6]

La BBC Radio 4 realizó una adaptación radiofónica de El hobbit en 1968,[7] mientras que Arthur Rankin Jr. y Jules Bass produjeron una película sobre ella para la televisión.[8] En la actualidad se encuentra en desarrollo la producción de una bilogía sobre la novela producida por el director de la trilogía cinematográfica de El Señor de los Anillos, Peter Jackson.[9] A pesar de haberse involucrado por más de dos años en el diseño y producción de las adaptaciones al cine,[10] el 31 de mayo de 2010, el mexicano Guillermo del Toro renunció a la dirección de las cintas debido al retraso en el comienzo de la filmación por los problemas financieros que atraviesa la productora Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.[11] También se han creado varios videojuegos basados en la novela
