Morgoth's Ring - Tolkien History of Middle Earth

£120.00

Product description

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with developments in the legends of Beleriand after the completion of "The Lord of the Rings", and includes the unpublished story "The Wanderings of Hurin".

Nice clean copy in very good condition with just a few small scuffs to dust jacket.
