The Silmarillion
The Silmarillion | J.R.R. Tolkien
A number-one New York Times bestseller when it was originally published, THE SILMARILLION is the core of J.R.R. Tolkien's imaginative writing, a work whose origins stretch back to a time long before THE HOBBIT.Tolkien considered THE SILMARILLION his most important work, and, though it was published last and posthumously, this great collection of tales and legends clearly sets the stage for all his other writing. The story of the creation of the world and of the the First Age, this is the ancient drama to which the characters in THE LORD OF THE RINGS look back and in whose events some of them, such as Elrond and Galadriel, took part. The three Silmarils were jewels created by Feanor, most gifted of the Elves. Within them was imprisoned the Light of the Two Trees of Valinor before the Trees themselves were destroyed by Morgoth, the first Dark Lord. Thereafter, the unsullied Light of Valinor lived on only in the Silmarils, but they were seized by Morgoth and set in his crown, which was guarded in the impenetrable fortress of Angband in the north of Middle-earth. THE SILMARILLION is the history of the rebellion of Feanor and his kindred against the gods, their exile from Valinor and return to Middle-earth, and their war, hopeless despite all their heroism, against the great Enemy.This second edition features a letter written by J.R.R. Tolkien describing his intentions for the book, which serves as a brilliant exposition of his conception of the earlier Ages of Middle-earth.

I have read the Silmarillion and listened to it as an audio book. I feel it is much more fun to experience as an audio book, as one does not have to muddle through the names in various languages. It reads like an epic history, as it should. Not to be missed for the true fans of Tolkien's work.

After a couple months of audio book listening... I FINISHED IT! Loved it so much. I don‘t think I could have read it with the physical book bc of all the intricate details- I would have gotten lost ! However I love Tolkien‘s books being read to me, and I am so glad to have listened to all of his books on audio. 💙And With that, #TheCrossfittingLibrariansJourneyThruMiddleEarth had ended 💚

Heavy metal band “Blind Guardian” is one of my favorite bands to play in the background while reading fantasy novels! With their epic orchestrations, their music almost sounds like a movie score, and several of their songs are even based on books like the Wheel of Time and Lord of the Rings series. Their “Nightfall in Middle Earth” album is based entirely on Tolkien‘s The Silmarillion!

When I listen to Tolkien Metal, so do the neighbors! 😎🤘🎸🎶

Yesterday, my group organised a conference with the theme: women in Tolkien's stories, are they really so few and secondary?
Actually we Rohirrim hosted the conference in our usual haunt in Verona, while La Musica degli Ainur, the group from Firenze, held the conference.
It was such a lovely day. It was a great collaboration and the conference was very interesting and sparked a great discussion.

I'm excited to be getting deeper into the back story of Middle Earth and where better to start than the very beginning? My only issue was that the first quarter or so of this reads like a Bible and was a little harder to wrap my brain around. But after that, it was great!

I read this at 13 and was both fascinated and confused. It was a lot. Think you could call it information-overload. I then read it again three years later and this time, I enjoyed it even more.
This is the father of world-building showing how it is done (that even before the fantasy-genre was defined). It's epic and, at times, the world-building seems to overshadow the characters, but then we have complex characters and politics.
I loved it!

Ok so yes, it took me a freaking week to read this because I just moved to my new apartment yesterday and the days leading up to that, plus the day of, and much of today, I had no time to read because I have TOO MUCH STUFF and I‘m still not done and uuggghhhh I hurt. But anyway, this was super interesting in parts, and the writing is gorgeous. It‘s almost Biblical in a way. But it was fairly repetitive too, & too many damn characters, LOL. 3/5 ⭐️

quote
alisonrose
Silmarillion | J R R Tolkien

The Light failed; but the Darkness that followed was more than loss of light. In that hour was made a Darkness that seemed not lack but a thing with being of its own: for it was indeed made by malice out of Light, and it had power to pierce the eye, and to enter heart and mind, and strangle the very will.

This was tied for second place in my #makemereadit voting, decided to go with this next because it‘s quite different from the book I just read and the other second place book. Haven‘t read any Tolkien in quite a while, I‘m eager to be enchanted/totally fucking lost, LOL 😂 #nowreading

This has become my favorite book over the course of years. I love that it reads as if it were a series of oral histories, and brings Middle Earth to life as a real mythology. The stories of Beren and Lúthien, the children of Húrin, and the fall of Gondolin are my favorite stories, and combine hope and hopelessness to make the world resonate.

I‘m so far behind with #ThereAndBackAgain that it‘s almost over! ☹️ Here is my post for day 2: “The Black Riders”—a dark scene or book from Tolkien‘s work.

The scene where Ungoliant attacks the Trees of Valinor is one of the first that came to mind as a dark scene—both figuratively and literally. I‘m always so affected by this scene—the heartbreaking destruction of beauty and light.

JazzFeathers Have you read the episode in the Lost Tales? It's even more atmospheric and emotional. Fantastic! 1y
Daisey So true! This is an incredibly dark scene (edited) 1y
BarbaraJean @JazzFeathers I haven‘t read the Lost Tales—I will have to remember that and compare the two! 1y
BarbaraJean @Daisey So dark and so heartbreaking! That‘s one of the things that makes Morgoth such a good (and frustrating) villain—his continual unmaking of creation after creation. He just keeps destroying the beauty, because he can‘t seem to make anything that compares. 1y

Finrod Felagund has always had a special place in my heart, l'm not even sure why.
Maybe because he's loyal, true, compassionate, brave. He's a singer ansia a wise as well as a warrior.
In short is an especially noble man even for an Elf.

The Struggle is real (even if a day late)!! The Silmarillion was a struggle for me, such a different structure than the other stories, and it‘s only now as I‘ve read into ‘the history of‘, that the stories are gelling more for me. I wish that the publishers had encouraged him to flesh it out more at the time, but sadly it‘s only through his son‘s archival work that I feel like I‘m seeing the whole picture (right, Niggle 😉).

#ThereAndBackAgain

JazzFeathers True, eh? The Silmarillion is a unique story. It's sad to think that it was probably its uniqueness that prevented it from being published during Tolkien's life. But before we moan over publishers' blindness, we should also consider that, without the publisher's push for more Hobbit stories, Tolkien might have never written The Lord of the Rings. I suppose we've been lucky 😊 1y
Daisey I agree! I appreciated the Silmarillion the first time I read it, but I did not at all absorb it. I finally feel now after a couple rereads, the Unfinished Tales, and a few books into the History that it is all finally making sense as a whole. 1y

#thereandbackagain #yearoftolkien This was the first book I really struggled with; I had to read it in bits & pieces to get through the first time. Nearly gave up a few times, but I persevered, and I‘m glad I did.

BookwormAHN I also had trouble with The Silmarillion the first time I read it. Most of the elf names are so similar that I had trouble telling everyone apart and then there is the chapter that is essentially a geography lesson 🤦🏼‍♀️ 1y
Rudis @bookwormAHN sameee. I know it‘s important, but the first time through, I just kinda gave up trying to tell the difference between them until my reread. 1y
JazzFeathers @BookwormAHN @Rudis Crazy as it might sound, l don't think the Silmarillion is a book to read just one time. It's only when you become familiar with it - all the names, the relationship, the plot point - that we may really appreciate it, l believe. 1y

#ThereAndBackAgain photo challenge day 3

After The Hobbit, l read the only other book by Tolkien my library had, The Silmarillion.
At 17, l could hardly believe this was the same author of The Hobbit. I was fascinated with the world, but the sheer complexity of the story overwhilded me.
I then read bits and pieces of the book over the years, coming to love it, but it was to be almost 20 years before l read the entire book again.
