Audio: J.R.R. Tolkien recites the Ring Verse


I was watching this Notre Dame lecture series on Tolkien and the first professor started playing Youtube clips of Tolkien. I had no idea this stuff was out there!


The video they were showing during the lecture had Tolkien talking (umm, some of it would qualify as muttering I think) about himself. I can't find the video, but you can hear it via the ND link above.

  1. Here's the link to the BBC archival footage... marvelous stuff, but it seems like everyone but Tolkien is high on pot
