9780261102149: Book of Lost Tales: Pt. 2 (The History of Middle-Earth)

The second of a two-book set that contains the early myths and legends which led to the writing of Tolkien's epic tale of war, The Silmarillion. This second part of The Book of Lost Tales includes the tale of Beren and Luthien, Turin and the Dragon, and the only full narratives of the Necklace of the Dwarves and the Fall of Gondolin, itself the finest and most exciting depiction of a battle that Tolkien ever wrote. Each tale is followed by a commentary in the form of a short essay, together with texts of associated poems, and contains extensive information on names and vocabulary in the earliest Elvish languages. This series of fascinating books has now been repackaged to complement the distinctive and classic style of the 'black cover' A-format paperbacks of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales.

Book Description Harpercollins UK Jan 2011, 2011. Taschenbuch. Book Condition: Neu. 200xx mm. Neuware - John R. R. Tolkien, geb. am 3. Januar 1892 in Südafrika, in England aufgewachsen, früh verwaist, hat mit seiner Romantrilogie 'Der Herr der Ringe' das Genre 'Fantasy' überhaupt erst geschaffen. Er zeigte sich schon als Kind fasziniert von alten, längst vergessenen Sprachen und Mythen. In Oxford spezialisierte sich der Stipendiat, der seit Kindertagen in seiner Freizeit zum bloßen Zeitvertreib Alphabete kreierte und neue Sprachen komponierte wie andere Menschen Musikstücke, bald aufs Altenglische und beschäftigte sich vor allem mit mittelalterlichen Dialekten der westlichen Midlands. W.A. Craigie, ein Kenner besonders der schottischen Volksüberlieferungen, führte ihn in die isländischen und finnischen Sprachen und Mythologien ein. Das Finnische wie das Walisische wurden später Grundlage für die Elfensprache im Herrn der Ringe. 1924, gerade 32 Jahre alt, wurde Tolkien als Professor für englische Sprachen nach Oxford berufen und blieb mehr als vierzig Jahre. Mit Frau und Kindern lebte er in einem schmucklosen Reihenhaus am Rande der Stadt. Tolkien ist 1973 gestorben, sein Fantasy-Land 'Mittelerde' ist, obwohl literarisch inzwischen vielfach abgekupfert, der beliebteste literarische Abenteuerspielplatz für Kinder und Erwachsene geblieben. 385 pp. Englisch.
