J.R.R. Tolkien - kaum ein Autor hat einen solchen Kultstatus erreicht, seine Werke und die darin geschaffenen Welten fesseln Generationen. Sehen wir unberührte Hügellandschaften, denken wir an das Auenland. Färben sich die Blätter im Herbst golden, erinnert uns dies an Lothlorien. Und der Ruf der Möwen entführt uns in Gedanken in die "Unsterblichen Lande". Tolkiens Mittelerde begegnet uns als eine alte Welt, die uns auf unbestimmte Weise vertraut ist. Christpher Snyder entführt den Leser auf Tolkiens Reise nach Mittelerde und entühllt die historischen, literarischen und biographischen Quellen seiner Inspiration - von den nordischen Mythen und Sprachen über das europäische Mittelalter bis zu den Einflüssen der Inklings und C.S. Lewis'.
