Happy Birthday J.R.R.

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born 112 years ago today in Bloemfontain, South Africa. In addition to his work as a linguist for the Oxford English Dictionary, he is known for his translation of Beowulf (and for "Beowulf: The Monsters and the Critics", his commentary on it) and for writing fantasy books modeled on the Norse sagas that he loved. He died in 1973 in Bournemouth, England.
