will criticize this claim but LotR is probably the most significant fiction of the 20th century.

Just kidding, but you need to consider the word Conne used, "significant", and understand the way he is using it. LoTR was influenced by WW II and his overall work is the result of a lifetime of scholarship of the whole breadth of the English language along with all the ancient languages, histories, and myths that helped create it as well as what arose from it. Furthermore his works then influenced other authors, artists, musicians, and pop culture over the decades.
