English writer and philologist J.R.R. Tolkien was the author of
the
high fantasy works The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

The great success of these two books led directly to a popular resurgence of the genre. This has caused him to be popularly
identified as the "father" of
modern fantasy literature—or, more 
precisely, of
high fantasy.
