Shortlisted for the 2011 Mythopoeic Scholarship Award forInklingsStudies

Tolkienís 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 weíve noticed: Tolkien is a first-rate stylist. The Power of Tolkienís Prose illuminates the multifaceted appeal of Tolkienís 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 Walkerís stylistic appreciation, Tolkienís fiction emerges as a new dimension of perception.

Steve Walker is a Professor of English at Brigham Young University.

He has written over seventy articles and books, including Seven Ways of Looking at Susanna, A Book of Mormons, and Mourning with Those who Mourn.
