The Tolkien Professor, Cory Olsen, once again uses the power of Twitter to answer the internet’s burning questions about J.R.R. Tolkien, The Lord of the Rings, and all the associated lore. Why can’t Frodo ride an eagle all the way to Mount Doom? Would the battle at Helm’s Deep gone differently if it hadn’t rained? How much time passes between “The Fellowship of the Ring” and “The Return of the King”? Cory answers all these questions and much more.
Corey Olsen, also known as The Tolkien Professor, is the Founder and President of Signum University, a nonprofit higher education institution dedicated to affordable and accessible online learning with a special focus on promoting the humanities. Through the Mythgard Academy, a Signum institution, Corey offers weekly explorations of The Lord of the Rings and other opportunities to discuss speculative literature and adaptations.
