Tolkiens unparalleled popularity has been largely attributed to his gifts as a storyteller and his thematic currency. But The Lord of the Rings may have become a modern classic for a deeper reason than weve noticed: Tolkien is a first-rate stylist. The Power of Tolkiens Prose illuminates the multifaceted appeal of Tolkiens prose style in dimensions ranging from his fantastic realism to his revitalizing imagery to his dynamic narrative to his expansive characterization to his engaging language. Viewed through the lens of Steve Walkers stylistic appreciation, Tolkiens fiction emerges as a new dimension of perception.
