The Tolkien Road

A podcast about Middle-earth and all things Tolkien.

0010 – Leaf By Niggle – Pt 1 – Introduction

“Leaf By Niggle” is one of Tolkien’s lesser known works, but it yields a ton of insight into his own creative vision. In the first of a two-part series, we discuss what Tolkien himself had to say about the story he wrote one morning in the late 30’s. This is also my favorite non-Middle-earth Tolkien work – it’s just a beautiful story.
