The Quest for the Empirical Hobbit:
A Comparative Study of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings
Acknowledgements


I am academically indebted to Lennart Nyberg, Lars-Håkan Svensson and Christian Stenevi.

I am personally indebted to Stefan Gudmundsson, Ingela Hansson and the girls, Glenn Håkansson, and Anders Wikander, for fantastic help and support while writing this essay.

I am philosophically indebted to Jimmy Nail, Kiss, the Simpsons, Jamie and Paul Buchman, the Cape, the Dubliners, Sorgenfri Boys and the inhabitants at Melrose Place, for helping me through the day.

As always, I owe my existence to mum, dad, friends, and the rest of my familiy.

A very special thanks to Åke Ohlmarx who has shown me how disastrous, and poor, a translation really can be, and that, in turn, has guided me in my choice of education, and future profession.
