My mother
J.R.R. Tolkien


"So I think that it’s very difficult to say what should a person which I can appreciate look like. There are many reasons to say that I have great regards for someone. For a lot of people appearance is important, for others only character is relevant. We can admire such celebrities as singers and actors or people, who can do something unusual, for example magicians for example David Copperfield. Everyone admire somebody from his or her family, but it can be only attachment not adoration. It’s easy to say that I admire my mother. My mum is such a great person because I can talk to her about everything. We like same kinds of music, have same opinions on contemporary problems, love mysteries and have many other things in common. She is willing to help me and gives me some good advice. I am really grateful to her for bringing me up. However, I think that for admiration legacy is also very significant. I’m mad of fantasy literature and I admire many writers. In my opinion, the founder of the modern heroic fantasy is J.R.R. Tolkien (3 January 1892 – 2 September 1973). He wrote the well-known trilogy The Lord of the Rings and just before the single book The Hobbit. However, the grandeur of his work can be felt mainly from The Silmarillion (published after his death by his son Christopher). Parallel to Tolkien's professional work as a philologist, and sometimes overshadowing this work, to the effect that his academic output remained rather thin, was his affection for constructing languages. The most developed of these are Quenya and Sindarin, the etymological connection between which formed the core of much of Tolkien's legendarium. Tolkien was a member of Inklings. Inklings was a literary club at Oxford University between 1930s and 1960s. Its members were lectors and students of Oxford (except Ch. Williams, he worked in Oxford University Press), well-wishers of fantasy genre, for example Tolkien’s close friend C. S. Lewis, author of The Chronicles of Narnia. Tolkien affected many spheres of culture – literature, painting, cinema or music. I love music created by Howard Shore to movies of The Lord of Rings trilogy."
