    Hi, my name is Henry, and I’m trying to write an informative speech about Tolkien. My three main points are “he redefined the fantasy genre, gave it mainstream appeal, and has remained relevant to this day,” and I’m really struggling to find some current sources (2012-present) that talk about those. I checked out most of the sources you’ve listed here, but a lot of them were pretty in depth discussions on various facets of Tolkien and his works, rather then big picture stuff. I was wondering if you know of any great sources that are current, and look more at the broad picture. Thanks for taking the time to read this.
