Abstract:

From the Publisher: "Majestic! Readers of The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings will find The Silmarillion a cosmology to call their own medieval romances, fierce fairy tales and fiercer wars that ring with heraldic fury it overwhelms the reader." Those interested in J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle Earth should not be without this grand volume that tells the tragic tale of the struggle for control of the Silmarils, a struggle that would determine the history of the world long before the War of the Ring.
