Beren and Lϊthien
Beren and Lϊthien | J. R. R. Tolkien
114 posts | 46 read | 8 reading | 69 to read
Painstakingly restored from Tolkien's manuscripts and presented for the first time as a continuous and standalone story, the epic tale of Beren and L?thien will reunite fans of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings with Elves and Men, Dwarves and Orcs and the rich landscape and creatures unique to Tolkien's Middle-earth. The tale of Beren and L?thien was, or became, an essential element in the evolution of The Silmarillion, the myths and legends of the First Age of the World conceived by J.R.R. Tolkien. Returning from France and the battle of the Somme at the end of 1916, he wrote the tale in the following year. Essential to the story, and never changed, is the fate that shadowed the love of Beren and L?thien: for Beren was a mortal man, but L?thien was an immortal Elf. Her father, a great Elvish lord, in deep opposition to Beren, imposed on him an impossible task that he must perform before he might wed L?thien. This is the kernel of the legend; and it leads to the supremely heroic attempt of Beren and L?thien together to rob the greatest of all evil beings, Melkor, called Morgoth, the Black Enemy, of a Silmaril. In this book Christopher Tolkien has attempted to extract the story of Beren and L?thien from the comprehensive work in which it was embedded; but that story was itself changing as it developed new associations within the larger history. To show something of the process whereby this legend of Middle-earth evolved over the years, he has told the story in his father's own words by giving, first, its original form, and then passages in prose and verse from later texts that illustrate the narrative as it changed. Presented together for the first time, they reveal aspects of the story, both in event and in narrative immediacy, that were afterwards lost.

WHAT A RIDE, y‘all. What a ride of emotions. Not nearly the level of Despair as the Children Of Hurin, but definitely not a walk through the park. All the same, BEAUTIFUL! And I am going to name my next rescue dog after the loyal hound, Huan πŸ˜­πŸ˜­πŸ’™ If you enjoy bittersweet love stories, this is the one for ya! 🎧 Audiobook Listen πŸ‘‚

An essential element in the evolution of The Silmarillion, a great read to more fully understand the process whereby this legend of Middle-earth has evolved over the many years. A beautiful love story shadowed with fate.

As much as this pains me to do so, I have to bail on this Tolkien piece. It‘s so frustrating constantly having the story interrupted so Christopher Tolkien can compare texts, or give ridiculously long explanations. This isn‘t a standalone story it‘s a bunch of different versions smashed into one book with way to much author narrative speak, which ultimate just left it feeling like a chore to read.

Paragraphs like these are the reason why there are so many people who don‘t enjoy reading Tolkien. I have 3 sisters & out of the 4 of us I am the only one willing to sit through these long winded, & frankly IMO unnecessary explanations. None of my sisters have finished a Tolkien book and I understand why, they aren‘t at times the most enjoyable to trudge through. I am 25 pages into this book & it already seems more of a chore to read.

My other choices for favorite characters are Luthien and the hound Huan. Luthien is an incredibly strong female character with amazing elvish magic. Huan plays an important role in Beren & Luthien‘s quest to retrieve a Silmaril and is just a fascinating character.

#ThereAndBackAgain #YearofTolkien

JazzFeathers I was torn about Luthien, since l wanted to showcase her too. She's always the one that leaps to my mind when people criticise the supposedly weak presence of female characters in Tolkien. She is so very much her own woman and still she's mindful and generous and selfless too. 2y

This has always been one of my favourite Middle-earth tales and was particularly close to Tolkien's own heart. Here Christopher Tolkien works his way through the long and varied history of the narrative through decades of drafting from prose to verse. It's beautiful and fascinating and I remain a little heartbroken that no version is really complete but it's the long verse that is my favourite.

Daisey I loved the verse version as well and the evil cats! 2y
JazzFeathers It is one of my favourite less famous Tolkien's story as well alongside Turin 2y

I love the story of Beren and Luthien. I love the strength of their love, and I love that Tolkien considered his wife his Luthien. Yet, I think my favorite aspect of the story might be the parts with Luthien and the hound Huan. I‘ve been trying to find an appropriate quote all day, and I‘m going with this scene in the poetic version when Huan talks to Luthien. The portions in verse are beautiful!

JazzFeathers The story of Beren and Luthian is rightly one if Tolkien's most famous. There is so much in there. Loved readind the different versions and the evolution in the book. 2y

The incredible attention in this edition, showcasing the story of Beren and Lúthien as it went through changing variations & edits to reach the version we first hear on Weathertop in Lord of the Rings, is a great story. The peek into the author‘s unfolding writing process is an even better one. I loved the epic poem version filled with the rhyme and cadence of ages past; I found myself wishing even more would have been completed in that format.

JazzFeathers I really enjoyed it. I was inserendo what to expect, because a few readers told me it is not what you'd expect. But it was fantastic for me. I too enjoyed seeing the evolution of the story and l would have liked even more insight into it πŸ˜† 2y

I didn‘t quite know what I was getting into when I started this book, so it took a while to adjust to reading the explanation and the changing story. As I went on, I realized the fascinating opportunity this book provides readers to see a tiny glimpse into Tolkien‘s in-depth and long term process of writing his stories, as well as his son‘s dedication to continuing to share them. I also loved reading the sections in verse.

When the story and fandom run away from the author.... imagine if he‘d been encouraged to really flesh out the elves drama, or the Beren story as a complete novel or trilogy.

#LOTRChapterADay

JazzFeathers And still, the story you want to write will always come out. The publisher wanted a new story of hobbit. Trying to give him that, Tolkien actually wrote the epic story he wanted, expanding his mythology even further than he had expected. I don't think we fans can complain πŸ˜† 2y

Spending part of my morning reading more of Tolkien‘s poetry. I am enjoying the story told in verse much more than I expected, and it adds so much detail about Luthien‘s role in the story.

However, my library ebook pages don‘t match the schedule, so I‘m not sure of the daily sections. Could one of you let me know the line numbers where we‘re stopping each day?

#LotRChapteraDay

Riveted_Reader_Melissa Good question, I have the ebook too. My kindle says the entire section is about an hour. So if @Rachbb3 can‘t give us line numbers I thought I‘d just read about 15 minutes a day. So today I‘d read until it said 45 mins left on chapt, tomorrow until it says 30 minutes left in chapter, etc. of course that depends on your reading speed. But if your ebook gives you the length of this chapter just decide it into 4 sections 2y

** And on a side note, I know understand all those appendixes and notes on pronunciation so much more, he needed to know exactly how everything was pronounced and enunciated to make his lines rhyme and flow correctly.
