Das Silmarillion erzählt die Götter- und Heldensagen Mittelerdes von der Erschaffung der Welt bis zum Beginn des Dritten Zeitalters, in dem die Hobbits leben. »Das Silmarillion« erzählt von den Ereignissen des Ersten Zeitalters - jener fernen Epoche von Mittelerde, auf welche die Helden des »Herrn der Ringe« immer wieder in Ehrfurcht zurückblicken. (Und manche von ihnen, wie Elrond und Galadriel, aber auch Sauron, haben sie miterlebt.) Es ist die Zeit der Elben, der Langlebigen, deren Liebe zu den Dingen so weit ins einzelne geht, dass sie allem Namen geben. Die Menschen (die Kränklichen, die Nachtfürchtigen, die Unbegreiflichen) kommen eben erst aus den Wildnissen des Ostens hervor. In dieser Welt, in der noch nicht alle Wege krumm sind, entwickelt sich auch die Erzählung in mächtigeren Bahnen, als wir es seither kennen. Melkor, der Meister des Verrats, raubt die Silmaril, in denen das Licht verschlossen liegt, das älter ist als Sonne und Mond; und Feanor und seine Söhne, um sie zurückzugewinnen, sagen ihm einen hoffnungslosen Krieg ohne Ende an. Ein Erdteil von Geschichten kommt in Bewegung, Geschichten, die in den Liedern der Elben besungen und hier im »Silmarillion« erzählt werden. Obwohl das »Silmarillion« erst lange nach dem Tod des Autors von seinem Sohn herausgegeben wurde, ist es früher entstanden, als »Der Herr der Ringe«. Die Geschichten um Mittelerde hatten sich für Tolkien über mehr als fünfzig Jahre hin zu einer Tradition verbunden, der er zuletzt mehr wie ein Philologe oder Historiker denn ein »Erfinder« gegenüberstand. Und so betraten die Hobbits und ihre Gefährten im »Herrn der Ringe« diese schon fertige Welt, den festen Boden der Legende unter den Füßen.

A number-one New York Times bestseller when it was originally published, THE SILMARILLION is the core of J.R.R. Tolkien's imaginative writing, a work whose origins stretch back to a time long before THE HOBBIT. Tolkien considered THE SILMARILLION his most important work, and, though it was published last and posthumously, this great collection of tales and legends clearly sets the stage for all his other writing. The story of the creation of the world and of the the First Age, this is the ancient drama to which the characters in THE LORD OF THE RINGS look back and in whose events some of them, such as Elrond and Galadriel, took part. The three Silmarils were jewels created by Feanor, most gifted of the Elves. Within them was imprisoned the Light of the Two Trees of Valinor before the Trees themselves were destroyed by Morgoth, the first Dark Lord. Thereafter, the unsullied Light of Valinor lived on only in the Silmarils, but they were seized by Morgoth and set in his crown, which was guarded in the impenetrable fortress of Angband in the north of Middle-earth. THE SILMARILLION is the history of the rebellion of Feanor and his kindred against the gods, their exile from Valinor and return to Middle-earth, and their war, hopeless despite all their heroism, against the great Enemy. This second edition features a letter written by J.R.R. Tolkien describing his intentions for the book, which serves as a brilliant exposition of his conception of the earlier Ages of Middle-earth.

The tales of The Silmarillion tell of the First Age of Tolkien's world, long before the time of The Lord of the Rings, when Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, dwelt in Middle-earth and the High Elves made upon him for the recovery of the Silmarils, the precious jewels containing the pure light of Valinor. When Morgoth destroyed the Two Trees of Valinor, their light lived on only in the Silmarils. This second tells how Morgoth seized the jewels and set them in his iron crown, guarded by Orcs in the fortress of Angband in the north of Middle-earth. Fëanor, the jewels' creator, sets out with the Deep Elves to recover them, and their quest brings the Noldor to the realm of Beleriand.

Many years ago, J.R.R. Tolkien composed his own version of the great legend of Northern antiquity, recounted here in The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún. In the Lay of the Völsungs is told the ancestry of the great hero Sigurd, the slayer of Fáfnir, most celebrated of dragons; of his awakening of the Valkyrie Brynhild, who slept surrounded by a wall of fire, and of their betrothal; and of his coming to the court of the great princes who were named the Niflungs (or Nibelungs), with whom he entered into blood-brotherhood. In scenes of dramatic intensity, of confusion of identity, thwarted passion, jealousy, and bitter strife, the tragedy of Sigurd and Brynhild, of Gunnar the Niflung and Gudrún his sister, mounts to its end in the murder of Sigurd, the suicide of Brynhild, and the despair of Gudrún. The Lay of Gudrún recounts her fate after the death of Sigurd, her marriage against her will to the mighty Atli, ruler of the Huns (the Attila of history), his murder of her brothers, and her hideous revenge.

“Shows how Finnish mythology and folk tales were instrumental to how Tolkien created his own legendarium.”—Boston Globe Kullervo, son of Kalervo, is perhaps the darkest and most tragic of all J.R.R. Tolkien’s characters. “Hapless Kullervo,” as Tolkien called him, is a luckless orphan boy with supernatural powers and a tragic destiny. Brought up in the homestead of the dark magician Untamo, who killed his father, kidnapped his mother, and tried three times to kill him when he was still a boy, Kullervo is alone save for the love of his twin sister, Wanōna, and the magical powers of the black dog Musti, who guards him. When Kullervo is sold into slavery he swears revenge on the magician, but he will learn that even at the point of vengeance there is no escape from the cruelest of fates. Tolkien himself said that The Story of Kullervo was “the germ of my attempt to write legends of my own,” and was “a major matter in the legends of the First Age.” Tolkien’s Kullervo is the clear ancestor of Túrin Turambar, the tragic incestuous hero of The Silmarillion. Published with the author’s drafts, notes, and lecture essays on its source work, the Kalevala, The Story of Kullervo is a foundation stone in the structure of Tolkien’s invented world. “A fascinating read.”—NPR

Large print hardback edition of the first volume of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure, The Lord of the Rings, complete with fold-out map. Sauron, the Dark Lord, has gathered to him all the Rings of Power -- the means by which he intends to rule Middle-earth. All he lacks in his plans for dominion is the One Ring -- the ring that rules them all -- which has fallen into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins. In a sleepy village in the Shire, young Frodo Baggins finds himself faced with an immense task, as his elderly cousin Bilbo entrusts the Ring to his care. Frodo must leave his home and make a perilous journey across Middle-earth to the Cracks of Doom, there to destroy the Ring and foil the Dark Lord in his evil purpose. Now available in large print and impossible to describe in a few words, JRR Tolkien's great work of imaginative fiction has been labelled both a heroic romance and a classic fantasy fiction. By turns comic and homely, epic and diabolic, the narrative moves through countless changes of scene and character in an imaginary world which is totally convincing in its detail.

composite work. He compares the published text with the source texts contained in the volumes of The History of Middle-earth (as well as other works such as Unfinished Tales of Middle-earth and Numenor, The Children of Hurin, and - in one case - Tolkien's letters) and identifies patterns of major and minor changes made to these source materials that result in the reconstruction of the finished text. He also cites the works of some of the most important Tolkien scholars, including Tom Shippey, Verlyn Flieger, Christina Scull, Wayne Hammond, Charles Noad, and David Bratman, in an attempt to understand and explain why these changes may have been made." --Book Jacket.
