Tolkien’s love for mythology and his idea of creating a new language led him into making stories and tales that were in the Middle English language which took place in Old England. Tolkien always had an interest in academics because it gave a sense of stability. He loved to learn and use his skills of teaching and writing as a way of earning money. He is known for his dramatic recitations for Old English verse. (Jones 16) Many authors and literary writers were historians and geographers.
