Why am I not surprised?

Lord of the rings
J.R.R. Tolkien: Lord of the Rings. You are
entertaining and imaginative, creating whole
new worlds around yourself. Well loved, you
have a whole league of imitators, none of which
is quite as profound as you are. Stories and
songs give a spark of joy in the middle of your
eternal battle with the forces of evil.


Which literature classic are you?
brought to you by Quizilla


I began to read LOTR in the summer before my 14th birthday. It remade my life. Since I was currently in my church-orphan phase, I didn't have much to keep me spiritually anchored. Tolkien was a proto-evangelist to me, like John the Baptist, a reference to whom he re-worked into his own mythology:
Eala Earendel, engla beorhtast
ofer middangeard monnum sended.
