France 1913. Tolkien's first job.

During the summer of 1913 Tolkien got a job as tutor of three boys during a trip to France. The trip had unexpected complications and left a deep impression on Tolkien. However, little is known so far about who those children were, what the future held for them and what were their personal relationships. Neither certain details of this trip have been analyzed, as well as the way in which Tolkien achieved this work. In this talk some of these facts will be revealed.
