John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, bedre kendt som J.R.R Tolkien, var en britisk forfatter, poet og akademiker. Han er manden bag den fantastiske historie om Hobitten og Ringenes Herre. J.R.R Tolkien gav folket den fantastiske og fantasifulde verden liv, for første gang i 1932, hvor Hobitten blev skrevet. Det er forgængeren til Ringenes Herre som udkom i 1954 og en nyere version i 1955. John Ronald Reuel Tolkien blev født d. 3. januar 1892 i Bloemfontein, Oranjiefristaten (Sydafrika). Vi mistede J.R.R Tolkien for lang tid siden, d. 2. september 1973 hvor han blev 81 år gammel. Han gik bort i Bournemouth, England og er i dag begravet ved Wolvercote Cemetery, Oxford. Samme by hvor han faktisk arbejdede engang på Oxford University som professor i oldengelsk. Samme sted hvor han også skrev historien om ringenes herre. J.R.R Tolkien var 45 år gammel da han i 1937 debuterede med “The Hobbit” og har efterfølgende i de resterende 37 år af hans liv, udgivet en roman og få småhistorier. J.R.R Tolkiens historier er typisk af genre som fantasy, mythopoeia og litteray critisim. Han er derudover rangeret nr 6 over listen af 50 bedste britiske forfatter siden 1945. Endvidere har Forbes rangeret ham som den femte bedste “top tjenende kendte blandt dem der er gået bort” i 2009. J.R.R Tolkien har en meget rig livshistorie fyldt med tumulter og det var også en hård tid han levede i. Han var i sine tidlige år en del af den britiske hær 1915-1920 hvor han var Lieutenant i Lancashire Fusiliers. I hans aktive militær år var han en del af slaget ved Sommen.

Der er lavet utrolig mange film omkring ringenes herre som er instrueret af Peter Jackson, samt trilogien omkring Hobbitten.

    Fortællingen om Húrins børn opstod i sin første form i 1918 som en af de tre Store Fortællinger, som Tolkien arbejdede på hele sit liv, men aldrig udgav. Fortællingerne var en del af hans livslange projekt om at skabe et stort, sammenhængende mytisk univers, der kulminerede med skabelsen af Ringenes herre i 50'erne. Fortællingen om Húrins børn finder sted længe før Frodos kamp mod Sauron - i Tolkiens tidsregning ca. 6.500 år før. Elementer i historien har optrådt her og der i de kendte romaner - f.eks. er Aragorns natlige beretning om Beren og Lúthien til hobbitterne på Vejrhøj i Ringenes herre bd. 1, en af de oprindelige tre Store Fortællinger - men en samlet fremstilling nåede Tolkien ikke at skabe. Det er nu lykkedes hans søn Christopher at samle faderens mange skitser til en fortløbende beretning om den legendariske Húrins to børn Túrin og Niënor, deres kamp mod Den Store Fjende Melkor Morgoth, og ikke mindst den forfærdelige forbandelse, der hviler over dem. Bogen er meget smukt illustreret af Alan Lee, som har illustreret adskillige Tolkien-udgivelser og vandt en Oscar for bedste filmdesign i filmatiseringen af Ringenes herre-trilogien.

    J.R.R. Tolkien, kendt og elsket for Hobbitten og Ringenes herre, virkede hele sit liv som professor i filologi og middelalderlitteratur i Oxford.

Værket, som forblev ufærdigt, udgives her af Tolkiens søn Christopher, som i tilgift giver læseren en unik indsigt i Tolkiens arbejde med værket og i dets forbindelse til det univers, Tolkien skabte i Silmarillion.

    A PBS Great American Read Top 100 Pick One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell by chance into the hands of the hobbit Bilbo Baggins. From Saurons fastness in the Dark Tower of Mordor, his power spread far and wide. Sauron gathered all the Great Rings to him, but always he searched for the One Ring that would complete his dominion. When Bilbo reached his eleventy-first birthday he disappeared, bequeathing to his young cousin Frodo the Ruling Ring and a perilous quest: to journey across Middle-earth, deep into the shadow of the Dark Lord, and destroy the Ring by casting it into the Cracks of Doom. The Lord of the Rings tells of the great quest undertaken by Frodo and the Fellowship of the Ring: Gandalf the Wizard; the hobbits Merry, Pippin, and Sam; Gimli the Dwarf; Legolas the Elf; Boromir of Gondor; and a tall, mysterious stranger called Strider. This new edition includes the fiftieth-anniversary fully corrected text setting and, for the first time, an extensive new index. J.R.R. Tolkien (1892-1973), beloved throughout the world as the creator of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion, was a professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford, a fellow of Pembroke College, and a fellow of Merton College until his retirement in 1959. His chief interest was the linguistic aspects of the early English written tradition, but while he studied classic works of the past, he was creating a set of his own.

    #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER In the Tale of The Fall of Gondolin are two of the greatest powers in the world. There is Morgoth of the uttermost evil, unseen in this story but ruling over a vast military power from his fortress of Angband. Deeply opposed to Morgoth is Ulmo, second in might only to Manw, chief of the Valar: he is called the Lord of Waters, of all seas, lakes, and rivers under the sky. But he works in secret in Middle-earth to support the Noldor, the kindred of the Elves among whom were numbered Hrin and Trin Turambar. Central to this enmity of the gods is the city of Gondolin, beautiful but undiscoverable. It was built and peopled by Noldorin Elves who, when they dwelt in Valinor, the land of the gods, rebelled against their rule and fled to Middle-earth. Turgon King of Gondolin is hated and feared above all his enemies by Morgoth, who seeks in vain to discover the marvellously hidden city, while the gods in Valinor in heated debate largely refuse to intervene in support of Ulmo's desires and designs. Into this world comes Tuor, cousin of Trin, the instrument of Ulmo's designs. Guided unseen by him Tuor sets out from the land of his birth on the fearful journey to Gondolin, and in one of the most arresting moments in the history of Middle-earth the sea-god himself appears to him, rising out of the ocean in the midst of a storm. In Gondolin he becomes great; he is wedded to Idril, Turgon's daughter, and their son is Erendel, whose birth and profound importance in days to come is foreseen by Ulmo. At last comes the terrible ending. Morgoth learns through an act of supreme treachery all that he needs to mount a devastating attack on the city, with Balrogs and dragons and numberless Orcs. After a minutely observed account of the fall of Gondolin, the tale ends with the escape of Trin and Idril, with the child Erendel, looking back from a cleft in the mountains as they flee southward, at the blazing wreckage of their city. They were journeying into a new story, the Tale of Erendel, which Tolkien never wrote, but which is sketched out in this book from other sources. Following his presentation of Beren and Lthien Christopher Tolkien has used the same ';history in sequence' mode in the writing of this edition of The Fall of Gondolin. In the words of J.R.R. Tolkien, it was ';the first real story of this imaginary world' and, together with Beren and Lthien and The Children of Hrin, he regarded it as one of the three ';Great Tales' of the Elder Days.

    Unavailable for more than seventy years, this early but important work is published for the first time with Tolkien's Corrigan poems and other supporting material, including a prefatory note by Christopher Tolkien. Set ';In Britain's land beyond the seas' during the Age of Chivalry, The Lay of Aotrou and Itroun tells of a childless Breton Lord and Lady (the ';Aotrou' and ';Itroun' of the title) and the tragedy that befalls them when Aotrou seeks to remedy their situation with the aid of a magic potion obtained from a corrigan, or malevolent fairy. When the potion succeeds and Itroun bears twins, the corrigan returns seeking her fee, and Aotrou is forced to choose between betraying his marriage and losing his life.Coming from the darker side of J.R.R. Tolkien's imagination, The Lay of Aotrou and Itroun, together with the two shorter ';Corrigan' poems (which lead up to it and are also included in this volume), were the outcome of a comparatively short but intense period in Tolkiens life when he was deeply engaged with Celtic, and particularly Breton, myth and legend.Originally written in 1930 and long out of print, this early but seminal work is an important addition to the non-Middle-earth portion of his canon and should be set alongside The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrn, The Fall of Arthur and The Story of Kullervo. Like these works, it belongs to a small but important corpus of his ventures into ';real-world' mythologies, each of which in its own way would be a formative influence on his own legendarium. Edited with notes and commentary by Verlyn Flieger and a prefatory note on the text by Christopher Tolkien.

Tolkien's First Age of the World. Always key to the story is the fate that shadowed their love: Beren was a mortal man, Lthien an immortal Elf. Her father, a great Elvish lord, imposed on Beren an impossible task before he might wed Lthien: to rob the greatest of all evil beings, Melkor, of a Silmaril. Painstakingly restored from Tolkien's manuscripts and presented for the first time as a continuous and standalone story, Beren and Lthien reunites fans of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings with Elves and Men, along with the rich landscape and creatures unique to Tolkien's Middle-earth.Christopher Tolkien tells the story in his father's own words by giving its original form as well as prose and verse passages from later texts that illustrate the narrative as it changed.

    With its first broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on March 8, 1981, this dramatised tale of Middle Earth became an instant global classic. It boasts a truly outstanding cast including Ian Holm (as Frodo), Sir Michael Hordern (as Gandalf), Robert Stephens (as Aragorn), Bill Nighy (as Sam Gamgee) and John Le Mesurier (as Bilbo). Brian Sibley's famous adaptation has been divided into three corresponding parts, with newly-recorded beginning and end narration by Ian Holm, who now stars as Bilbo in the feature films based on The Lord of the Rings. Part One, The Fellowship of the Ring, introduces us to Frodo Baggins. With his uncle Bilbo having mysteriously disappeared, Frodo finds himself in possession of a simple gold ring that has great and evil power. It is the Ruling Ring, taken long ago from the Dark Lord, Sauron, who now seeks to possess it again. Frodo must do everything he can to prevent this, and with the help of Gandalf the wizard and a band of loyal companions he begins a perilous journey across Middle-earth. Sauron's Black Riders are on their trail as they travel to Rivendell, attempt to cross the snow-swept Misty Mountains and, in desperation, enter the terrifying Mines of Moria.

The letters were from Father Christmas.They told wonderful tales of life at the North Pole: how the reindeer got loose and scattered presents all over the place; how the accident-prone North Polar Bear climbed the North Pole and fell through the roof of Father Christmas's house into the dining room; how he broke the Moon into four pieces and made the Man in it fall into the back garden; how there were wars with the troublesome horde of goblins who lived in the caves beneath the house, and many more.No reader, young or old, can fail to be charmed by Tolkien's inventiveness in this classic holiday treat.

    The Book of Lost Tales was the first major work of imagination by J.R.R. Tolkien, begun in 1916-17 when he was twenty-five years old and left incomplete several years later. It stands at the beginning of the entire conception of Middle-earth and Valinor, for these tales were the first form of the myths and legends that came to be called The Silmarillion. Embedded in English legend, they are set in the narrative frame of a great westward voyage over the Ocean by a mariner named Eriol (or AElfwine) to Tol Eressea, the Lonely Isle, where elves dwelt; from him they learned their true history, the Lost Tales of Elfinesse. In these Tales are found the earliest accounts and original ideas of Gods and Elves, Dwarves, Balrogs, and Orcs; of the Silmarils and the Two Trees of Valinor; of Nargothrond and Gondolin; of the geography and cosmology of Middle-earth. Volume One contains the tales of The Music of the Ainur, The Building of valinor, The Chaining of Melko, The coming of the Elves and The Flight of the Noldoli, among others. Each tale is followed by a short essay by Christopher Tolkien, the author's son and literary executor.
