>J. R. R. Tolkien was a fat and an enthusiastic pothead. His stories were created around the simple Freytag's pyramid (Tolkien barely knew the basics of exposition) and dialogue was composed of few clever jokes or songs that were thought up during his "blaze".

>LoTR would not enjoy any mainstream popularity had not there been a constant herd of competent writers around Tolkien, to repair the books into a publishable condition. J. R. R. was constantly shitfaced but his only way to deal with the matter was to twist the jokes about the addiction because he simply couldn't admit the problems with his lifestyle. After all, the only merit of this "greatest author on earth" is how many Elvish songs he could write about being high.

Without looking them up, name three. How many have you read?
C.S. Lewis doesn't count as he's a shitty writer.

I don't care for Tolkein's work I just don't think the other inklings were any better.

who cares, if it's enjoyable to read.

sure, some of the fanbase put Tolkien on a pedestal, but frankly I couldn't care less about the authenticity of his stories. I don't care if the author I'm reading is a hack, as long as it's entertaining.

So I guess you have a point, and there are some people out there who need to hear it, but I don't think it's as important as you think it is. Tolkien is best read as a series of historical accounts, anyways.
