Will Sherwood is a scholar who specialises in Romanticism and J.R.R. Tolkien. He is also the Education Secretary for the UK Tolkien Society. Will’s Masters by Research thesis fused both his fields of research together in The ‘Romantic Faëry’: Keats, Tolkien, and the Perilous Realm. The thesis argued that Keats and Tolkien shared a conception of the perilous Faërie as the national heritage of England and Britain, as well as a debt to the antiquarians James Macpherson and Thomas Chatterton, the early Romantic writers of the ‘Age of Forgery’ in the 1760s
