Valedictory Address to the University of Oxford refers to J.R.R. Tolkien's retirement speech from the University of Oxford, delivered on 5 June 1959 in the Merton College Hall.[1]

The valedictory remained unpublished until 1979, when one draft of the speech was included in J.R.R. Tolkien, Scholar and Storyteller: Essays in Memoriam.[2] Another draft was published in The Monsters and the Critics and Other Essays (1983).
