    The whole interview is at

    I think Tolkien’s stories were made in part so that there would be a world for his languages.

    The interviews are great, thank you. I will post here a recording of Tolkien himself for those who have not heard it, Sam's Troll song. I would love to hear more interviews from Christopher Tolkien!

    I love this, it is enchanting.
