Críticas:

‘How, given little over half a century of work, did one man become the creative equivalent of a people?’
The Guardian

‘Demanding to be compared with English mythologies... at times rises to the greatness of true myth’
Financial Times

‘A creation of singular beauty... magnificent in its best moments’
Washington Post

‘A grim, tragic, brooding and beautiful book, shot through with heroism and hope... its power is almost that of mysticism’
Toronto Globe & Mail

Reseña del editor:

A beautifully presented edition of The Silmarillion, illustrated by Ted Nasmith, to celebrate the 21st year of publication.

J R R Tolkien’s SILMARILLION is the core work of the Middle-earth canon. It is in this dense and often neglected masterpiece that the entire cosmology for the background for THE HOBBIT and, particularly, THE LORD OF THE RINGS is documented.

The volume contains fabulous tales of heroes and monsters, and the history of the Elves and of the Silmarils – the magical jewels produced by the Children of Iluvatar, or Elves (humans being the Younger Children of Iluvatar); it tells of the creation of Middle-earth, and the coming of Men into the world; it chronicles the early battles between good and evil, forces of light and dark, which foreshadow the great conflict with Sauron, the Dark Lord, in LORD OF THE RINGS.

1998 marks the coming of age of these tales of Middle-earth, published posthumously in 1977. Tolkien worked on THE SILMARILLION all his life – long before THE HOBBIT or LORD OF THE RINGS – and his son and literary executor Christopher Tolkien edited the material he left behind into its current form. Now in its 21st year of publication, THE SILMARILLION comes of age with 20 sumptuous illustrations by Ted Nasmith, perhaps the finest of Tolkien artists.
