The Silmarillion

30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of first publication, a new de luxe edition of The Silmarillion, featuring the revised, reset text, a colour frontispiece illustration, bound in special materials and presented in a matching slipcase. The Silmarillion is an account of the Elder Days, of the First Age of Tolkien's world. It 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 tales of The Silmarillion are set in an age when Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, dwelt in Middle-Earth, and the High Elves made war upon him for the recovery of the Silmarils, the jewels containing the pure light of Valinor. Included in the book are several shorter works. The Ainulindale is a myth of the Creation and in the Valaquenta the nature and powers of each of the gods is described. The Akallabeth recounts the downfall of the great island kingdom of Numenor at the end of the Second Age and Of the Rings of Power tells of the great events at the end of the Third Age, as narrated in The Lord of the Rings. For the first time, we are publishing a deluxe edition of this pivotal work, featuring the revised, corrected text and including, by way of an introduction, a fascinating letter written by Tolkien in 1951 in which he gives a full explanation of how he conceived the early Ages of Middle-earth. Quarter-bound, and set in a matching slipcase, this attractive edition will prove a fine addition to any Tolkien collection.

Um estilo muito diferente do usual para o autor.A princípio, pouco interessante e pobre em descrições (me lembrou muito os primeiros livros da bíblia ahsuashaus). Mas depois de genealogias, a história da criação da terra média e a queda de Melkor, torna-se difícil de largar. Ainda existem capítulos levemente enfadonhos, mas histórias como a de Earendil , ou de Beren e Luthien, a descrição de Gandalf (Olori) em seus anos passados, e muitas , muitas batalhas pelas cobiçadas Jóias ... leia mais
