* SugarWiki/DevelopmentHeaven: It's no exaggeration to say that the saga represents Creator/JRRTolkien's total life's work [[note]] Well, slightly, considering that Tolkien also was the youngest ever professor at the University of Leeds, was a Professor at Oxford (twice), spoke twelve languages, and wrote the best Modern English translation of "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight" and an academic critique of ''Beowulf'' which completely transformed perception of Old English literature[[/note]]. It's just that detailed. And to think that the entire world, complete with intricate mythology, fleshed-out characters, and delightful poetry served one purpose: to serve as a backdrop for the out-of-whole-cloth-created languages that the English professor had constructed. Boggles the mind, it does.

* DearNegativeReader: In his introduction to the second edition of ''The Lord of the Rings'':
--> “Some who have read the book, [[TakeThatCritics or at any rate have reviewed it]], have found it boring, absurd, or contemptible, and I have no cause to complain, since I have similar opinions of their works, or of the kinds of writing that they evidently prefer.”
* FranchiseZombie: ''The Lord of the Rings'' came into existence only because the publishers wanted a sequel for the immensely popular ''Hobbit'' while Tolkien was more interested in working on his legendarium. Tolkien avoided the negative effects of this trope by incorporating both ''LOTR'' and ''The Hobbit'' into his mythos that was part of the (then unpublished) ''Silmarillion''.
