The Tolkien Reader: A collection of fantastical short stories and essays on imagination and narrative forms, including The Adventures of Tom Bombadil and Tree and Leaf

The Silmarillion: The epic precursor to The Lord of the Rings, set primarily in the First Age of Middle-earth, recounting the ancient drama of the Elder Days and the harrowing origins of the adventure that ends with Frodo and the One Ring

Unfinished Tales: Collected lore and legends from across the ages of Middle-earth, including the only surviving story of Númenor, the greatest kingdom of men, before its downfall in the Second Age

Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, Pearl, Sir Orfeo: Three masterpieces of medieval poetry, skillfully translated by J.R.R. Tolkien, that weave a bright tapestry of chivalry and wizards, knights and holy quests

He is, however, beloved throughout the world as the creator of Middle-earth and author of such classic works as The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
