"Beren and Luthien" by J. R. R. Tolkien collects the various versions of Tolkien's beautiful tale of Beren and Lúthien and shows how the story evolved through the years. The legend was essential to the development of "The Simarillion" by J.R.R. Tolkien and is now - for the first time ever - presented as a separate story.

The legend of Beren and Lúthien is a beautiful tale from Middle-earth about Beren, a brave human man, and his lover Lúthien, a noble Elven lady. Lúthien's father who is Lord of the Elves disapproves wholeheartedly of the romance blooming between his daughter and this unworthy mortal. He decides that Beren only will be allowed to marry Lúthien if he completes an impossible quest: He must rob the evil Dark Lord Morgoth and recover a Simaril from his clutches. With Lúthien by his side Beren will embark on the most difficult task of his life.

"Beren and Luthien" by J. R. R. Tolkien is illustrated by the masterful Alan Lee who is famous for his fantasy works inspired by Tolkien's books. Lee is also renowned for his work as lead conceptual artist on Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" movie trilogies.

Forlagets beskrivelse Painstakingly restored from Tolkien's manuscripts and presented for the first time as a continuous and standalone story, the epic tale of Beren and Luthien 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 Luthien 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 Luthien: for Beren was a mortal man, but Luthien 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 Luthien. This is the kernel of the legend; and it leads to the supremely heroic attempt of Beren and Luthien 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 Luthien 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.
