My Latest Essay Is Now Available!

Hey, friends, exciting news! Issue #5 of the Silver Leaves Journal is now available and it features my latest essay. This time I look at JRR Tolkien’s beloved fantasy classic, The Hobbit, as a coming of age novel and examine the deeper under currents of the story. It is these aspects that I argue make it so long lasting.

As usual the journal is a top-notch publication. This time however, the art work featured is so mesmerizing I probably spent more time gazing upon it then reading my own essay! If you are a fan of Tolkien, and great literature you owe it to yourself to pick up a copy of Silver Leaves#5.
