“"I went to [Tolkien’s] public lectures. They were absolutely appalling. In those days a lecturer could be paid for his entire course even if he lost his audience, provided he turned up for the first lecture. I think that Tolkien made quite a cynical effort to get rid of us so he could go home and finish writing Lord of the Rings.””
- Yeah, I always wondered how Tolkien kept an academic job, considering he only wrote one (Beowulf: The Monsters and the Critics) and a half (the Gawain translation) academic works worth bothering with.
