Go on a fascinating journey through the history of Middle-earth!
"The Lord of the Rings" is commonly regarded as a work of fantasy. Yet Tolkien himself saw his work as a body of myth with an inherent veracity at its core, not an invention, but a recovered truth. In the Middle-earth of "The Lord of the Rings," Tolkien created not an imaginary world, but an imaginary history of our own world.
"
"THE WORLD OF TOLKIEN draws out the analogies within "The Lord of the Rings" that render this epic a timeless mythology for the modern age. Here is the most comprehensive guide to uncovering the "real-world" inspiration behind the gods and demigods, races of men, elves and dwarves, wizards and hobbits, creatures and monsters, cities, geography, battles, and major events in the history of Middle-earth. Essential reading for Tolkien enthusiasts of all generations.
Stunningly illustrated with 65 color and 35 black and white illustrations.
