J. R. R. Tolkien
´╗┐Born January 3rd, 1892
Critical Insights: The Hobbit
The Hobbit was met with international acclaim upon its publication in 1937, given its adventurous plot, elements of high fantasy, and lovable protagonist, Bilbo Baggins. This classic staple of children's literature is studied by examining its themes at maturation and overcoming greed, exploring the world Middle-earth, and comparing/contrasting the text with its popular sequel, The Lord of the Rings.

Edgar Allan Poe
January 19th, 1809
Critical Insights: The Poetry of Edgar Allan Poe
Poe's poetry has long been shrouded in an aura of mystery, sublimity, and horror. Wildly imaginative and disquietingly mournful, his most famous poems, "Annabel Lee," "The Raven," and "Ulalume," are some of American literature's most haunting laments for lost loves. Their insistent rhymes and rhythms continue to thrill readers worldwide, more than a century and a half after their publication.
