Description :

'I will tell you the tale of Tin�viel,' said Strider, 'in brief - for it is a long tale of which the end is not known . . . though it is sad, as are all tales of Middle-earth . . . yet it may lift up your hearts.' The shared gravestone of J.R.R. Tolkien and his wife Edith bears two simple epitaphs: "L�thien" for Edith and "Beren" for Tolkien himself. These names reference two characters from The Silmarillion, the early Middle-earth legends that Tolkien spent his entire adult life developing. Beren and L�thien are a pair of fated lovers who set out on a perilous quest to wrest a coveted Silmaril from the grasp of the demonic Morgoth. In the process they do battle with Sauron, the cruel antagonist of The Lord of the Rings. This in-depth exploration of the story brings together various threads of The Silmarillion and seeks to treat the tale of Beren and L�thien as something like wisdom literature. Numerous insights are extracted in order to bring the reader to a deeper appreciation of the entirety of The Silmarillion. In the process, a helpful introduction is provided to those seeking a start on The Silmarillion as well as to those seeking to understand how The Silmarillion relates to The Lord of the Rings. All readers will come away with a better understanding of the legend that Tolkien himself called "the kernel" of the Middle-earth mythology.
