9780261103047: The History of Middle-earth (10) - Morgoth's Ring

This is a description and documentation of the later history of "The Silmarillion", from the time when the author's father turned again to "The Matter of the Elder Days" after "The Lord of the Rings" was at last achieved. The text of the "Annals of Aman", the "Blessed Land" in the far West, is given in full; while in writings hitherto unknown is seen the nature of the problems that J.R.R. Tolkien explored in his later years, as new and radical ideas, portending upheaval in the old narratives, emerged at the heart of the mythology, and as the destinies of Men and Elves, mortals and immortals, became of central significance, together with an enlarged perception of the evil of Melkor, the Shadow upon Arda. Among these writings a central place is given to the "Athrabeth Finrod ah Andreth", in which the Elvish King of Nargothrond debates with the "wise-woman" Andreth the injustice of human mortality. The second part of this history of the later "Silmarillion" is concerned with developments in the legends of Beleriand after the completion of "The Lord of the Rings", and includes the unpublished story "The Wanderings of Hurin".

L'autore:

Christopher Tolkien, born on 21st November 1924, is the third son of J.R.R. Tolkien. Appointed by Tolkien to be his literary executor, he has devoted himself since his father's death in 1973 to the editing and publication of unpublished writings, notably The Silmarillion and the collections entitled Unfinished Tales and The History of Middle-earth. Since 1975 he has lived in France with his wife Baillie.



John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born on the 3rd January, 1892 at Bloemfontein in the Orange Free State, but at the age of four he and his brother were taken back to England by their mother. After his father’s death the family moved to Sarehole, on the south-eastern edge of Birmingham. Tolkien spent a happy childhood in the countryside and his sensibility to the rural landscape can clearly be seen in his writing and his pictures.

Dalla quarta di copertina:

In 'Morgoth's Ring', the first of two companion volumes, Christopher Tolkien describes and documents the later history of 'The Silmarillion', from the time when his father turned again to 'the Matter of the Elder Days' after 'The Lord of the Rings' was at last achieved. The text of the Annals of Aman, the 'Blessed Land' in the far West, is given in full; while in writings hitherto unknown is seen the nature of the problems that J. R. R. Tolkien explored in his later years, as new and radical ideas, portending upheaval in the old narratives, emerged at the heart of the mythology, and as the destinies of Man and Elves, mortals and immortals, became of central significance, together with a vastly enlarged perception of the evil of Melkor, the Shadow upon Arda.

The second part of this history of the later Silmarillion is concerned with the developments in the legends of Beleriend after the completion of 'The Lord of the Rings'.

"One marvels anew at the depth, breadth, and persistence of J. R. R. Tolkien's labour. No one sympathetic to his aims, the invention of a secondary universe, will want to miss this chance to be present at the creation.
