College course on Tolkien is every nerdy student's fantasy12/16/2012
The wildly popular course on J.R.R. Tolkien at Marquette University in Milwaukee has been such a success among students that the university is considering more courses like it long after "The Hobbit" movie leaves theaters. They have some claim to it, being one of the main repositories of Tolkien's writings — more than 11,000 pages worth including the original manuscripts of "The Lord of The Rings" and "The Hobbit." Students are able to read their paperback copies, and then go look at the original watercolors, poetry and translations of the author. "The Hobbit," which literary critics argue changed fantasy writing forever, is now in its 75th anniversary. [Source]
