As you will see in these pages, Tolkien is not an ordinary author, in the sense that his works bring many commentaries and reactions in many fields.
The literary approach is of course the first to consider with novels among the most famous of the English speaking countries, and a great many studies and analytic works in those same countries. Unfortunately such studies are rare in French, whether they are translations or works by French authors. I say "rare", for it seems that the craze is bursting forth, little by little. It's partly to make up lost time that this site has its raison d'être.
JRRVF is also the home of the association "la Compagnie de la Comté".
The Tolkien Sarcasm Page, one of the oldest bastions of Tolkien humor on the Web, is here to help Middle-earth historians everywhere take a break from those heated arguments about Glorfindel's bloodline and whether or not Thingol was a wise King.
This website is devoted to the languages of Middle-earth devised by John Ronald Reuel Tolkien. You can publish here your poems and short prose in Quenya, Sindarin or other languages found in the books by this author. If you are an Elvish student here you can find good examples of Elvish grammar and vocabulary, and here you can read about the current events in the Tolkienian linguistic fandom. Nai aistalë Eldaron hilya le! 'May the blessing of the Elves go with you!'
Here you will find a thousand and one pages and pictures where people present their tastes, passions and talents, in their own way! Don't hesitate to travel through the various categories, treasures are hiding here and there...
