The Complete Guide to Middle-earth From The Hobbit Through The Lord of the Ring

With the release of The Fellowship of the Rings in movie theaters this December, Tolkien enthusiasts might consider Robert Foster's The Complete Guide to Middle-earth From The Hobbit Through The Lord of the Rings and Beyond as essential to their viewing pleasure as popcorn. For anyone who's ever wondered "who's Beren?," "where's the Great Shelf?" or "what's the Council of Gondor?," this A-Z reference describes every person, locates every place and explains everything in Tolkien's saga. For the millions who have already ventured to Middle-earth, and for the countless others who have yet to embark on the journey–here is the one indispensable A-to-Z guide that brings Tolkien’s universe to life. EVERY CHARACTER From Adaldrida Brandybuck to Zaragamba–every Hobbit, Elf, Dwarf, Man, Orc, or other resident of Middle-earth is vividly described and accurately located in proper place and time. EVERY PLACE Colorfully detailed descriptions of geographical entries allow you to pick up the action anywhere in Middle-earth and follow it through all five volumes. EVERY THING From stars and streams to food and flora, everything found in Middle-earth is alphabetically listed and, when necessary, cross-referenced. HERE IS TRULY A MASTER KEY TO TOLKIEN’S MIDDLE-EARTH

Avec la sortie De la Camaraderie des Anneaux dans les salles de cinema ce Decembre, enthousiastes de Tolkien pourrait considerer le Guide Complet de Robert Foster's De la Moyen-Terre Du Hobbit Par Le Seigneur des Anneaux et Au-dela aussi essentiel a leur plaisir de visionnement que le mais eclate. Pour n'importe qui qui est jamais demande « qui est Beren ? , » « ou est la Grande Etagere ? » ou « quel est le Conseil de Gondor ? , » cette reference d'A-Z decrit chaque personne, localise chaque endroit et explique tout dans la saga de Tolkien. Pour les millions qui ont deja ose la Moyen-Terre, et pour les autres innombrables qui ont s'embarquer encore sur le voyage-ici est l'un necessaire Un--z au guide qui apporte l'univers de Tolkien a la vie. CHAQUE CARACTÈRE D'Adaldrida Brandybuck a Zaragamba-Chaque Hobbit, Elf, le Nain, l'Homme, l'Orque, ou tout autre resident de la Moyen-Terre est avec eclat decrit et exactement plac dans l'endroit et le temps appropries. CHAQUE ENDROIT Les descriptions Colore detaillees des entrees geographiques te permettent de prendre l'action n'importe ou en Moyen-Terre et de la suivre par chacun des cinq volumes. CHAQUE CHOSE Des etoiles et des courants a la nourriture et a la flore, tout trouve en Moyen-Terre est alphabetiquement enumere et, si necessaire, etabli les renvois de. VOICI VRAIMENT UNE CLE MACHINE AU MIDDLE-EARTH DE TOLKIEN

Les clefs du monde de Tolkien Simple amateur ou admirateur fanatique, tous peuvent trouver leur bonheur dans ce guide qui donne toutes les clefs du monde de Tolkien. Ce dictionnaire des noms de personnages, de lieux et d'objets couvre "Le Seigneur des Anneaux", "Le Hobbit" et "Le Silmarillion", soit du premier au troisieme age. Il comprend egalement des tableaux genealogiques par exemple, la maison d'Elros, celle d'Ilsidur et d'Anarion, celle de Húrin, etc. Tres complet, il est aussi remarquablement fiable et clair. Non seulement il vous donnera la reponse de questions precises telles que "c'est qui deja, la mere d'Elrond ?", mais il pourra vous expliquer des passages obscurs des livres. L'explication sur les trois races d'Elfes et leur parcours vous aidera beaucoup, par exemple, a comprendre des passages pas toujours tres clairs du Silmarillion. Les etymologies sindar ou quenya des noms de lieux ou de personnages sont egalement precieuses. Bref, ce guide est un complement indispensable de l'amateur. Il pallie les memoires defaillantes, rassemble des informations disseminees dans les livre, offre une vision claire et accessible au monde de Tolkien. Les fanatiques regretteront peut-etre que le corpus traite ne s'etende pas aux "Contes inacheves" ou aux "History of Middle-Earth". On peut aussi regretter l'absence totale de cartes. On sourira egalement devant l'illustration de couverture, plutot vieillote, qui nous montre Legolas en petits collants et Aragorn facon Cyrano de Bergerac... Une belle base de donnees Ce guide est une source inepuisable d'informations rattachees au Silmarillion, a Bilbo le Hobbit et au Seigneur des Anneaux. Meme si la couverture est un peu vieillote, le contenu est solide. A posseder si l'on veut ameliorer ses connaissance sur la Terre du Milieu, depuis Eru jusqu'au Quatrieme Age. Everything you ever wanted to know about Middle Earth The book has a well thought out design in a dictionary form. You find information on every character, every place, and every thing. There is a section on how to read the sources and abbreviations in the book. There are appendixes with A Chronology of the First Age, Genealogical Tables, and Conversion of page references to Houghton Mifflin Editions. Some may think this guide is geared towards those that already have a basic knowledge of Middle earth. But upon exam one finds it is like any other dictionary those with a large vocabulary may need an occasional glance; while others may have to look up the words that explain the words. I find it indispensable.

For the millions who have already ventured to Middle-earth, and for the countless others who have yet to embark on the journey–here is the one indispensable A-to-Z guide that brings Tolkien’s universe to life. EVERY CHARACTER From Adaldrida Brandybuck to Zaragamba–every Hobbit, Elf, Dwarf, Man, Orc, or other resident of Middle-earth is vividly described and accurately located in proper place and time. EVERY PLACE Colorfully detailed descriptions of geographical entries allow you to pick up the action anywhere in Middle-earth and follow it through all five volumes. EVERY THING From stars and streams to food and flora, everything found in Middle-earth is alphabetically listed and, when necessary, cross-referenced. HERE IS TRULY A MASTER KEY TO TOLKIEN’S MIDDLE-EARTH

Extrait With the appearance of The Silmarillion, the publication of J. R. R. Tolkien's mythopoesis is virtually complete. The reader can now appreciate the full scope and significance of the history of Aman and Middle-earth, the central stages in the great drama of the Creation of Eae. One can trace in detail the Light of Aman from the Two Trees on Ezellohar to the renewing power of the Phial of Galadriel in the stinking darkness of Shelob's Lair. The terror felt there by Sam Gamgee is better understood after reading of the Unlight of Ungoliant, and Boromir's desire for the Ring can be seen as a wisp of the Shadow of Melkor, who lusted after Light but created only Darkness. Not only do the great conflicts between East and West--from the First War and the Battle of the Powers to the Battle of Fornost and the War of the Ring-- reveal the nature of good and evil and the immeasurable compassion of Iluvatar, but also, the identity of the forces that intervene to give victory to the good suggests the progressive freeing of Man from the influence of both Valar and demons to work out his own destiny, known to Iluvatar alone. Writing this revised edition of my Guide to Middle-earth has enhanced my awareness of these correspondences, designs which are surely central to the joy of Faerie and which give Professor Tolkien's work its marvelous and profound coherence. But it has also made me aware of the difference between the conception and the realization of this cycle of myth and romance, between the 'visionary scene' and its 'frame,' 1 between the Vision and the Text. The 'seamless web of Story' 2 is indeed endless and without blemish, but books--and lives--alas, are not. In the first edition of the Guide, I used any information available to me that I believed came from Professor Tolkien and had been transmitted accurately; I hoped that these details would ultimately appear in print. But now--faced with a plethora of revised texts, calendars, letters, illustrations, interviews, anecdotes, and reports of conversations, some containing contradictory information--I have come to believe that inconsistencies, sometimes deliberately maintained by Professor Tolkien, occur where the details of the Vision were not clear to him, where he was stymied by a single leaf on the Tree, not sure of 'its shape, and its sheen, and the glistening of dewdrops on its edge,' 3 not yet ready to fix it in the Text. Yet these inconsistencies, which can bulk large in an alphabetic treatment of Faerie, should not be allowed to detract from the general bloom of this lushly foliated Tree. So this revised Guide is limited to the Text, to published works by Professor Tolkien in the latest editions available to American readers. The basic text for The Lord of the Rings is again the Ballantine paperback edition, with emendations from the revised Houghton Mifflin hardback edition; Appendix C contains a concordance between the two editions. British editions contain several further emendations, which I have not taken into account; of those I have heard of or seen, the most significant is the change of d to dh in Galadrim and Caras Galadon, which resolves the confusion (encouraged, it seems, by the Elves themselves, as Christopher Tolkien's comment in The Silmarillion on Galadhriel suggests) between Sindarin galad 'light' and galadh 'tree.' The three exceptions to this rule of Text are sources which seem particularly trustworthy the Pauline Baynes map of Middle-earth displays a number of place-names evidently given her by Professor Tolkien; Clyde Kilby's intimate Tolkien and the Silmarillion contains intriguing hints of the End; so much of the information contained in Professor Tolkien's letters to and conversations with my friend Dick Plotz has been corroborated by The Silmarillion that I feel confident in using other items. In general, I hope that I have not forgotten the limits of
