Dramatic. And Tolkien... so tall and strong and powerful.
Well, he was taller than average for his time, 5' 8 3/4" in his seventies, so probably 5'10-11" in his prime. As for "strong and powerful" he rowed crew, played rugby, and I believe swam, so was fairly in shape. He called himself "skinny", until he grew older and sedentary, when he became "tubby". So that is his own word on himself.
