Description

Isildur had cut the One Ring from Sauron's hand in the battle ending the Second Age, but refused to destroy it, claiming it for himself. Book II chronicles Frodo's stay at Rivendell, where a plan is hatched at the Council of Elrond to destroy the Ring in Mordor. Early on Frodo meets his uncle Bilbo, whom he had not seen since he left Hobbiton seventeen years earlier. Extensive appendices outline more details of the history, cultures, genealogies, and languages that Tolkien imagined for the peoples of Middle-earth.

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. IX - The Great River - they notice Gollum following them down the river on a log; Orc archers attack the boats; a Nazgûl on its steed is seen flying above the Fellowship's boats, and is shot down by Legolas, who fires an arrow at the rider's flying beast; passing the Argonath, they reach the Falls of Rauros, where they must choose between traveling on the east or west bank of the river to pass the falls.VI · The Old Forest — Although trying to avoid it, the hobbits get lost and travel to the River Withywindle, the "queerest part of the whole wood".

Théoden musters his army and rides to the fortress of Helm's Deep; Gandalf departs to seek help from Treebeard. Unusually for 20th century novels, the prose narrative is supplemented throughout by over 60 pieces of poetry. Written in stages between 1937 and 1949, The Lord of the Rings is one of the best-selling books ever written, with over 150 million copies sold. Further information: The Fellowship of the Ring § Contents 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. Tolkien’s epic adventure, The Lord of the Rings, is read by the BAFTA award-winning actor, director and author Andy Serkis.It tells the backstory of Sméagol and his friend Déagol, and how they came upon the Ring after Sauron was temporarily defeated. The Council decides that the Ring must be destroyed, but that can be done only by sending it to the fire of Mount Doom in Mordor where it was forged.

Aragorn, Gimli and Legolas track the hobbits to Fangorn, where they meet Gandalf: he explains that he killed the Balrog; he too was killed in the fight, but was sent back to Middle-earth. Finally, Tolkien allowed himself a measure of whimsical fun, describing the delicious meals the Hobbit protagonists were able to enjoy when each adventure was over, singing cheerful songs in the form of poems embedded in the text, describing the Hobbits playing about like schoolboys when a hot bath suddenly became available in Tom Bombadil's comfortable house, and most pleasurably, constructing humorous dialogue.

It’s a simple question, but one bound to rile up Tolkien fans, who love and study the author’s works with serious devotion. 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. All he lacks in his plans for dominion is the One Ring – the ring that rules them all – which has fallen into the hands of the hobbit, Bilbo Baggins. We start off with the mystery of Bilbo Baggins' longevity, and his passing of the baton to his nephew, Frodo.

T 13] However, a month later he wrote a note published at the end of The Fellowship of the Ring and later drew a cover illustration, both of which identified the pair as Minas Morgul and Orthanc. The volume contains a prologue for readers who have not read The Hobbit, and background information to set the stage for the novel. Scholars have remarked that unlike the rest of The Lord of the Rings (which has an elaborately interlaced structure), all of it is told as a single thread with Frodo as the protagonist, with the exception of the two long flashback chapters, "The Shadow of the Past" and "The Council of Elrond".The Arts and Crafts polymath William Morris was a major influence, [T 9] and Tolkien undoubtedly made use of some real place-names, such as Bag End, the name of his aunt's home. Obviously lord of the rings is a legendary series and it’s a great story, it’s been years since I’ve read it (listened this time).
