Review:

With this compilation of the enormous “The History of Middle-earth”, we get the literary backstory, so to say, of J. R. R. Tolkien’s confusion and exertions of the composition of one of the most intricate fantasies every constructed. Undoubtedly difficult reading, you must have a profound, long-lasting interest in mythology and Tolkien’s desire to create one to get through this, and you need a working awareness of Tolkien’s life pursuit to really understand the “History”. Do not buy this imagining anything as nearly accessible The Lord of the Rings or The Annotated Hobbit.
“The History” works as a narrative of the evolutionary processes of one of the grittiest fictional projects of the 20th century. Tolkien once wrote that he would leave no memoire behind in traditional form, for his written works were his biography. In that matter, “The History of Middle-earth” is the conclusive work for Tolkien fans. This, even beyond “The Hobbit”, “The Lord of the Rings”, and the 1977 version of “The Silmarillion”, is truly Tolkien’s life work. As you read through this series, you see Tolkien’s thoughts at work, playing with ideas, names, potential plot lines, and just the over-all struggle to get through the work. This is not a fun, humorous read that you pick up; this is an intellectual look out the evolution of one of the most momentous fictional projects of the 20th century, and an opportunity almost never granted to readers.

The first 2 volumes deal with the earliest form of “The Silmarillion”. In several ways, shockingly different than the forms the legends finally found themselves in the published work. The style is workman-like, and a far call from the more proficient writings of the later volumes. The work is far more novelistic, written in an antiquated style somewhat evocative of the more parched passages of the series. Most interesting is in the original form Beren was an elf, which entirely changes a massive aspect in the mythology. Also, there are 2 dropped Gods (brother and sister Makar and Meلssë), similar to war divinities of ancient, primeval mythologies.

Get these books and become absorbed in Tolkien’s grandeur! However, be conscious “The History” details at great length the construction of this intricate universe, which means these are coarse drafts and many other things that didn’t make it into publication in Tolkien’s time, tallying a huge amount of material to Tolkien’s fandom to consider.

Overall, a magnificent, and almost never given, opportunity to watch one of this century’s most significant writers go through the artistic process. This set gives the most inspiration to ambitious and struggling writers, for it shows, first and foremost, that writing is a course, not a complete product. Highly recommended for the thoughtful Tolkien student and fan, and for writers concerned in watching a master at work.
