Carefully restored from Tolkien manuscripts and carefully restored from Tolkien manuscripts and presented for the first time continuously and autonomously in history, the epic of Beren and Luthian will be to bring together fans of bilbo the Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings with Men and Elves, Dwarfs and Orcs and the richness of the unique landscapes and creatures of Tolkien, the Land of the Middle.The tale of Beren and Luthian was, or has become, an essential element in the evolution of the Silmarillion, the myths and legends of this First Age of the universe imagined by JRRTolkienReturning from France and the Battle of the Somme at the end of 1916, he wrote the following year’s account.Essential to history, and never changed, is the fate that the shadow of Beren and Luthian’s love: for Beren was a mortal man, but Luthian was the immortality of the Elf.His father, a great Elven lord, in deep opposition to Beren, imposed an impossible task on him that he had to do before he could marry Luthian.This is the nucleus of the legend; it leads to Beren and Luthian’s supreme heroic attempt together to steal the greatest of all evil beings, Melkor, called Morgoth, the Black Enemy, from a SilmarilIn this book, Christopher Tolkien attempted to extract from the history of Beren and Luthian’s global work in which he was incorporated; but this history was itself the change that he developed new associations within the great history.To show something of the process by which this legend of Middle-earth evolved over the years, he told the story of his father’s own words, giving, in the first place, his original form, and then passages in prose and later verses that illustrate the story as he changed.Presented together for the first time, they reveal aspects of history, both in the event and in the narrative of immediacy, which were then lost.
