Explicando Tolkien ("Explaining Tolkien") is a Brazilian book written by Ronald Kyrmse.[1]

From the publisher[edit | edit source]

Tolkien was responsible for the birth of the literary genre of fantasy fiction. Many readers delve with delight in the works of the English author. A better appreciation of his books is only possible if we know more about his life, the motives that inspired him and the messages he wished to convey to us. In "Explicando Tolkien", Ronald Kyrmse, who has been studying the author for nearly a quarter century, aims to illuminate many facets of this prodigious work, showing how Tolkien works with his sub-created world, as well as the richness of details and issues that make up myths, peoples, languages​​, calendars, etc.
