Description

S. Lewis wrote in Time and Tide that the book created a new world of romance and "myth without allegorical pointing", with a powerful sense of history. Tolkien drew on a wide array of influences including language, [T 6] Christianity, [T 7] mythology and Germanic heroic legend including the Norse Völsunga saga, [22] archaeology, especially at the Temple of Nodens, [23] ancient and modern literature, like Finnish 19th-century epic poetry The Kalevala by Elias Lönnrot, [24] and personal experience. Behind the events that befall the Ring-bearer and the Fellowship, the reader begins to sense an awakening of the true nature of the story.

The Lord of the Rings began as a sequel to The Hobbit but gradually took in elements of the legendarium, the mythology summarized in The Silmarillion. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by additions to lore and world building, or even completely new characters and stories. Influences on this earlier work, and on the story of The Lord of the Rings, include philology, mythology, Christianity, earlier fantasy works, and his own experiences in the First World War.Homely Houses" are shown with house icons; dangers, with or without actual violence, with crossed-swords icons. The remaining eight members of the Fellowship then spend some time in the elf-haven of Lothlórien, where they receive gifts from the elf queen Galadriel that in many cases prove useful later in the quest. Tolkien presents The Lord of the Rings within a fictional frame story where he is not the original author, but merely the translator of part of an ancient document, the Red Book of Westmarch. The work is divided internally into six books, two per volume, with several appendices of background material.

You’ll always remember the first time you encountered these moving, masterfully imagined epics about the struggle between good and evil, the delicate balance of death and immortality, and the addictive danger of power. Book I: The Ring Sets Out [ edit ] Gandalf proves that Frodo's Ring is the One Ring by throwing it into Frodo's fireplace, revealing the hidden text of the Rhyme of the Rings. II · The Council of Elrond — A council attended by many people; Gandalf tells the story of his escape from Saruman; they decide that the ring must be destroyed and Frodo offers to take it to Mordor. The Ents destroy Isengard, Saruman's stronghold, and flood it, trapping the wizard in the tower of Orthanc.IX · At the Sign of the Prancing Pony — The hobbits reach the Prancing Pony inn at Bree, where Frodo uses a false name, Underhill. Certainly, as a Scot, this sounds exactly like a bad stand-up making bad Scots jokes, and it's probably going to be enough to stop me reaching the end. Ultimately, Aragorn steps into his destiny as King of Gondor and peace reigns, but readers coming to the series from the films will be disarmed by the hobbits’ homecoming.

Although Frodo refers to Bilbo as his "uncle", the character is introduced in "A Long-expected Party" as one of Bilbo's younger cousins. It leads us through a succession of strange and astonishing episodes, some of them magnificent, in a region where everything is invented, forest, moor, river, wilderness, town and the races which inhabit them. Some years later, Gandalf reveals to Frodo that the ring is in fact the One Ring, forged by Sauron the Dark Lord thousands of years before to enable him to dominate and enslave all of Middle-earth. Frodo, Sam and Pippin set out through the South Farthing of the Shire towards Buckland, and encounter a Black Rider. They were also accompanied by Bill the Pony, whom Strider and the Hobbits acquired in Bree as a pack horse.

Gandalf informs Frodo that the Black Riders are the Nazgûl, Men from ancient times enslaved by Rings of Power to serve Sauron.

The body of the volume consists of Book One: "The Ring Sets Out", and Book Two: "The Ring Goes South". They are pursued by mysterious Black Riders, but meet a passing group of Elves led by Gildor Inglorion, whose singing to Elbereth wards off the Riders. Frodo's five "Homely Houses" [ edit ] Tolkien's descriptions of Frodo's five "Homely Houses", [9] alternating with places of danger, form a repetitive structure for the first part of the volume.As Frodo falls dangerously under the sway of the ring’s dark magic during the hazardous journey through Mordor, Aragorn and his forces stage a last stand at the Black Gate of Mordor, and Frodo makes a seismic sacrifice to destroy the ring once and for all. And his character accents are atrocious - from the Mummersett stereotypes of much of the Hobbitry to - above all - the truly cringeworthy faux-Scots accent he gives Pippin. When they reach the house at Crickhollow, Merry and Pippin reveal they know about the Ring and insist on travelling with Frodo and Sam.
