    About "J.R.R. Tolkien Christopher Tolkien"

      • J.R.R. Tolkien Christopher Tolkien

        John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, CBE, was an English writer, poet, WWI veteran a First Lieutenant in the Lancashire Fusiliers, British Army , philologist, and university professor, best known as the author of the high fantasy classic works The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.Tolkien was Rawlinson and Bosworth Professor of Anglo Saxon at Oxford from 1925 to 1945, and Merton Professor of English language and literature from 1945 to 1959 He was a close friend of C.S Lewis.Christopher Tolkien published a series of works based on his father s extensive notes and unpublished manuscripts, including The Silmarillion These, together with The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, form a connected body of tales, poems, fictional histories, invented languages, and literary essays about an imagined world called Arda, and Middle earth within it Between 1951 and 1955, Tolkien applied the word legendarium to the larger part of these writings While many other authors had published works of fantasy before Tolkien, the great success of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings led directly to a popular resurgence of the genre This has caused Tolkien to be popularly identified as the father of modern fantasy literature or precisely, high fantasy Tolkien s writings have inspired many other works of fantasy and have had a lasting effect on the entire field.In 2008, The Times ranked him sixth on a list of The 50 greatest British writers since 1945 Forbes ranked him the 5th top earning dead celebrity in 2009.Religious influencesJ.R.R Tolkien, was born in South Africa in 1892, but his family moved to Britain when he was about 3 years old When Tolkien was 8 years old, his mother converted to Catholicism, and he remained a Catholic throughout his life In his last interview, two years before his death, he unhesitatingly testified, I m a devout Roman Catholic Tolkien married his childhood sweetheart, Edith, and they had four children He wrote them letters each year as if from Santa Claus, and a selection of these was published in 1976 as The Father Christmas Letters One of Tolkien s sons became a Catholic priest Tolkien was an advisor for the translation of the Jerusalem Bible Tolkien once described The Lord of the Rings to his friend Robert Murray, an English Jesuit priest, as a fundamentally religious and Catholic work, unconsciously so at first, but consciously in the revision There are many theological themes underlying the narrative including the battle of good versus evil, the triumph of humility over pride, and the activity of grace In addition the saga includes themes which incorporate death and immortality, mercy and pity, resurrection, salvation, repentance, self sacrifice, free will, justice, fellowship, authority and healing In addition The Lord s Prayer And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil was reportedly present in Tolkien s mind as he described Frodo s struggles against the power of the One Ring.


    1. This is the first work that showed us how Tolkien's obsessive perfectionism was a double-edged sword. On the one hand it gave us the wonderfully deep world and implied distances of The Lord of the Rings; and on the other hand it left us with a jumble of tales in various states of revision and development that had to be compiled by Tolkien's son Christopher into some form as The Silmarilliona jumble of tales that, if they had been finished, would have given us a truly staggering body of work. Jus [...]

    2. Yüzüklerin Efendisi her sayfasında hem edebiyatının yumruğunu masaya vuran hem de kurgusu ve karakterleriyle insanı alıp götüren bir başyapıttı. Fakat Silmarillion adeta akademik bir çalışmaydı. O ana kadar hep büyük ustanın bir dünya kurguladığını, başarılı karakterlere kalemiyle can verip koca kadim topraklarda kaderlerini çizmeye yolladığını düşünmüştük. Oysa ta baştan yanılmıştık. Çünkü Tolkien bir dünya kurgulamadı, hayır. O gerçek anlamda [...]

    3. خواندن درباره ی آردا و جهان خیالی و در عین حال واقعی تالکین، مثل نشستن سر کلاس های تاریخ است! هر کدام از شخصیت ها خاندانی دارد که می توان ردش را حتی تا ظهور الف ها در سرزمین میانه دنبال کرد. برای خواندن کتاب های تالکین (به خصوص یادداشتهایی که پسرش در قالب کتاب چاپ کرده) به قلم و کا [...]

    4. This is simply a moneymaking scheme. After the success of the Silmarillion, the Tolkien state has published all notes that were in a more or less readable state. This is the only one I bought (besides Chidren of Hurin, which probably has much in common with the bigger part of this book).I do not think Professor Tolkien would have liked to have these drafts and notes published. Many of them are even obsolete, as he built up and discarded elements in his mythic construct.There are some great story [...]

    5. The name says it all -- these are stories primarily of the First and Second Age of Middle-earth that had never quite reached completion, even in draft form; some predate the writing of Lord of the Rings by decades but most come after, and the book includes some of Tolkien's last writings about Middle-earth. The stories are presented by his son Christopher who, presumably, selected the pieces that were nearest to completion and likeliest to be of interest to Middle-earth aficionados. The pieces a [...]

    6. This is a hard book to rate, because it's sort of like rating a compilation album of Led Zeppelin studio out-takes. If you love Led Zeppelin, you would undoubtedly want to listen to pretty much anything they did. On the other hand, objectively speaking, it's probably not their best work, and if you trust them as artists, you know why they left that material on the cutting room floor. And, indeed, this book is a collection of scrapings, random essays and bits of narrative illuminating obscure cor [...]

    7. Thoroughly enjoyed this, it was just so great to learn more about both old and new characters!! Tolkien's middle earth is so rich and beautiful and it was amazing to be able to delve even deeper into it!

    8. This collection of Unfinished Tales is difficult to get to grips with, because Christopher Tolkien had the sense not to mess with them too much. He didn't correct inconsistencies or do too much to the material, and that's for the best: J.R.R.'s intent and the breadth of his world are best experienced this way, I think.I don't think this is one for the casual reader, but for someone interested in Tolkien and his creation of a secondary world, and in the details of Middle-earth, it's a good one. E [...]

    9. Muito poucos foram os livros que, até agora, reli. De entre eles contam-se dois de Tolkien. Creio que não há melhor forma de revelar o meu fascínio por tamanho escritor. Tolkien não é apenas o pai da alta fantasia, é o criador de um mundo paralelo, de tal forma abrangente e profundo que, mesmo passados 100 anos do mote, “num buraco vivia um hobbit”, com o qual começou a obra de toda a sua vida, esta não cessa de nos maravilhar. Forjado na mente de um jovem oficial a partir dos horro [...]

    10. Chyba nie muszę mówić, że to obowiązkowa pozycja dla każdego fana Śródziemia. Chociaż połowy postaci i miejsc już nie kojarzyłam (jeśli chodzi o Pierwszą i Drugą Erę), ale to jest chyba w pewien sposób zaletą - za każdym razem odkrywasz uniwersum jakby na nowo. Jeśli ktoś nie czytał Silmarillionu, może mieć jeszcze większy problem, żeby się tu połapać. Uwielbiam historię o Túrinie i Niënor, i uwielbiam absolutnie wszystko, co dotyczy Trzeciej Ery. Ta książka poc [...]

    11. Όχι απλά αξίζει να διαβαστεί, επιβάλλεται για τους λάτρεις. Είναι γεμάτο πληροφορίες που ήξερες ό,τι ήθελες, όπως μια ανάλυση για τους Ιστάρι και μια διήγηση για την πτώση του Ισίλντουρ, αλλά και που δεν ήξερες ό,τι υπάρχουν για να θέλεις (εγώ προσωπικά τουλάχιστον), όπως οι α [...]

    12. It took me ages to read, but it was wholly fascinating how much detail lies behind every individual action in Middle Earth. It has inspired me to reread The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings again. I feel like everything will make so much more sense!

    13. Since I found some of these stories quite interesting and a couple others utterly boring, I've brought my rating to 4 stars. I will say that it isn't a good idea to go into this book unless you are already an avid Tolkien fan. This book is a collection of unfinished pieces (I mean, the title?) from LOTR, The Hobbit, The Silmarillion and other like books. If reading notes upon notes of what certain things could have meant etc. bores you to death, this book is not for you lol. I did find it all ve [...]

    14. Orta Dünya hakkında ne kadar kitap yazılırsa yazılsın, hep anlatılacak bir başka öykü daha vardır sanırım. Gizli kalmış öyküler, bize ulaşamayanlar Bitmemiş Öyküler'e başlarken heyecanlıydım açıkçası neler okuyacağıma dair ve hayal kırıklığına da uğramadım. İlk Çağ, İkinci Çağ ve Üçüncü Çağ olmak üzere 3 kısımdan oluşuyor kitap ve her şeyin en başından başlıyor anlatılmaya. Savaş yüzünden ailesini terk etmek zorunda kalan Tuor'un öyk [...]

    15. J.R.R. Tolkien's Unfinished Tales is a terrific book for diehard Tolkien fans, in particular, fans of The Lord of the Rings who have not yet read The Silmarillion. Ever wondered what were the exact events that caused Isildur to lose the One Ring? Or the origins of Wizards? Or what Middle-Earth was like during its First Age? Unfinished Tales helps to shed light on the complex creation of Middle-Earth and the many tales and legends that relate the events in its long and largely tumultuous history. [...]

    16. A fascinating look at many of the stories that did not make it into Professor Tolkien's primary works. This is probably one of my favorite books of this well-known mythology.(view spoiler)[I think my favorite part of this book is the chapter concerning the history of Galadriel and Celeborn. Tolkien clearly had many different ideas for their origins, and it's utterly fascinating to see those ideas laid out. It also makes a person wonder what he ultimately would have laid down for them. The Silmar [...]

    17. I have so enjoyed finishing these Unfinished Tales with my chapter a day group. Tolkien was a great, and immensely nuanced storyteller, his son Christopher a devoted son and detailed story archiver, whose life work allowed us to see the depth of creativity and true craft his father put into all his tales. I’ve truly enjoyed the surface tale, as well as the the deeper tale behind its creation and evolution.

    18. I've read quite a few parts of this previously, either due to individual curiosity about specific topics (such as the Quest of Erebor, Istari, Palantiri) or as part of other works (Narn i Hin Hurin – most of which is incorporated in The Children of Hurin), but I had not until now sat down and read all the various tales in order. Already a big fan of Tolkien, as a whole I quite enjoyed the collection, especially since Christopher Tolkien's notes and analysis are kept at a minimum compared when [...]

    19. This book is for the nerdiest of Tolkien nerds. I enjoyed it. There were some chapters that I skipped over because I had no interest in them I don't really care about Eorl and I don't really care about the fields of Celebrant, but almost everything else was fantastic. The most dissappointing chapter that I read was "Galadriel and Celeborn," and that's only because it was one of the least finished by Tolkien. Some poeple say this book was put out there for money, but I disagree. There are a LOT o [...]

    20. I bought this book at a used book store in Rome. I read it in the evenings right before bed and on long train trips. When I was leaving Rome for the last time, I had no room in my suitcase, so I sacrificed that book and left it at the hotel. The cover I selected is the one I left behind. My current copy, also used, is a different edition. Most books I found in that hotel were old guide books. I always wondered if someone found it curious that there was a Tolkien book on the shelf!This book is a [...]

    21. ‫این کتاب، مجموعه‌ای از داستان‌هاییه که تالکین تا پایان عمرش نتونسته بود اون‌ها رو به انسجام کلّی برسونه و ببنده. در کتاب اصلی، حدیث تور و آمدن او به گوندولین هم هست که در ایران، اون داستان پیش‌تر به پیوست فرزندان هورین منتشر شده بود و طبعاً در این کتاب نیست. می‌شه گفت که کت [...]

    23. In retrospect I'm amazed that I ever managed to drudge through this collection of unfinished and/or abandoned stories from middle earth. But then again, I did once pull myself through the insomnia obliteration that is The Silmarillion. "Rings" fans will not think twice about reading this of course (and will certainly not weigh in my input), but for the rest of us, the original trilogy and The Hobbit goes a very long way.

    24. Racconti Incompiuti si presenta come un’opera d’appendice rispetto ai romanzi che si potrebbero definire canonici nella cosmogonia tolkieniana.Tuttavia, per quanto l’antologia di racconti presentati si configuri come una serie di “bozze preparatorie” di ciò che saranno successivamente le storie contenute ne Il Silmarillion, ne Il Signore degli Anelli e ne Lo Hobbit, risulta essere una vera e propria miniera di tesori, molto di più rispetto a quanto lo siano le due raccolte precedenti [...]

    25. Tough read but a pleasure. Learn the details behind the trilogy, concerning Gandalf and Sarumans kind, Galadriel and Celeborn's history, stories of Elendil, and older legends in this realm. The greatest about this, to me: seeing behind the scenes at Tolkien' s creative process. It inspires me to sit down, for pleasure, and create/ build my own world 20 minutes at a time, and use this as a canvas to paint short stories and go from there. Love Tolkien. Plans change, especially mine, but I plan to [...]

    26. I put off reading UNFINISHED TALES mostly because I feared it would try my patience the way that THE SILMARILLION did. I appreciated the latter, but between J.R.R. Tolkien’s exposition-heavy style and stretching the reading over 3 months, I didn't love it. So, the fact that I had a much smoother and more positive time with UNFINISHED TALES was a huge surprise.UNFINISHED TALES OF NÚMENOR AND MIDDLE-EARTH is a collection of stories and essays that Tolkien never completed before his death in 197 [...]

    27. Until the publication of The Children of Hurin a few years ago, Unfinished Tales was the third piece of the Middle-earth trilogy. Paired with The Lord of The Rings and The Silmarillion it was a bit of a third wheel; comprised of various stories in different states of completeness with some editorial comments by Christopher Tolkien needed to bridge the gaps and contradictions left by the myriad versions Tolkien authored of most of these stories.Unfinished Tales actually includes my favorite of al [...]

    28. By its very nature, this is an unsatisfactory and even frustrating book, being a highly fragmented series of incomplete texts, really of interest only to those willing to wade through a lot of academic contextualisation to understand the nature of the pieces and the editorial process by which they were selected. Once past that, though, it's gold. The further one goes the more one appreciates the unique genius of Tolkien, the driven obsessive who recounts the stories he invents as though they wer [...]

    29. Tolkien, need I say more? The only thing you should be aware of before reading this book is that, whilst the Silmarillion is a continuous story, the Unfinished Tales are, as the title suggests, an anthology consisting of stories from different points in time in the history of Middle Earth. Some of these stories merely consist of fragments found and commented on by Tolkien's son. The history of Galadriel and Celeborn seems to be even more fragmentary than the other ones, indeed the editor decided [...]
