J.R.R. Tolkien: Padre de la literatura fantástica moderna

Although J.R.R. Tolkien did not invent heroic fantasy, in the latter part of the twentieth century, The Lord of the Rings has become almost a standard literary form for the genre.
Why is this?
What is it about Tolkien and his work that has fostered this modern literary and commercially successful phenomenon?
These questions and more are mined in this enticing exploration of Tolkien's artistic, linguistic, and creative genius, where history becomes legend, and legend chisels out the mysterious blossoms of myth. Series: "Let There Be Light" [Humanities]
