There is no guaranteeing this is the final copy of my thesis. I will, to the best of my ability, try to verify the authenticity of this document. Be that as it may, this copy seems to be structurally in tact, and offers some of the best work I’ve ever written. Considering the adversity I had to deal with – I submitted my thesis without ever having an official proposal approved – I am content to have graduated first class, receiving an A- for this work. Tolkien was an incredible man and his work an incredible subject to research. Check out the thesis here.
