  1. 1. Silmarillion  
  2. 2.  John Ronald Reuel Tolkien (3 January 1892 – 2 September  1973) - English novelist, poet, philologist, a university  professor. Tolkien is considered a classic of fantasy  literature. He created an extremely powerful world Middle- earth, inhabited by hobbits, elves, dwarves and other  fantastic mythical creatures . Almost all the books of Tolkien  present actions taking place there. The most important are:  "The Lord of the Rings" (1954), "The Hobbit" (1937), or the  monumental, just completed by the son of the writer,  "Silmarillon" (1977), which is a kind of mythology of Middle- earth. He published over 100 works  on philology and ancient literature, worked at the creation  of the largest dictionary of the English language,  published shortly after the war, Oxford English Dictionary.  He knew (in varying degrees) more than 30 languages, ​​ mostly extinct, Germanic and Celtic. JRR Tolkien was  born in an English family in 1892 as the son of a  banker Arthur Tolkien and Mabel Suffield his wife. He was  born in Bloemfontein in the Orange Free State (now in South  Africa), where his father was a civil servant (director from  1890) in a branch of Bank of Africa.
  3. 3. In my opinion  I think that John Ronald  Reuel Tolkien is one of the  best writers of  fantasy. In his novels he  shows that he had an  incredible imagination. He  created a world that takes  the reader to the land  of elves and other  creatures. In  his  works  the events of  his life such as  love with Edith can be  found. He is the creator  of fantasy literature, and in  my opinion the best.
  4. 4. Begining  The first two parts-Ainulindalë and Valaquenta are  typical myths. They talk about how Eru (Iluvatar) created the  Ainur and taught them to sing. All Ainur stood before  him and sang, until they sang together. When they were able to sing together, they sang three songs, which Eru  created later Ea - the world. But Melkor - the most  powerful of them wanted to add his topics to the songs,  but this caused anxiety. Ainur were fascinated by the beauty  visions of the world so they decided to come to Arda - Earth, so they became Valar (mighty)  or Majar (lesser). They began to arrange the world so as in  the songs. In the very middle they built a  country called Amaran  and at the ends of the world they  built lighthouses and Melkor destroyed it .  The fall of the  lighthouses caused the destruction of the Amaran so they  moved to the Aman - the country in the West that created for themselves after the destruction of Amaran.
  5. 5. Plot  Quent Silmarillion is the longest and the most  important of the story. It describes the the First Era of  the World, by the appearance of the elves in the  world. To protect children Iluvatar Valar kidnapped  Melkor and put into a dungeon for 300 years  and invited the elves to Aman. Elves have learned a  lot from the Valar, and began to produce beautiful  things. Elves of the family Finw - Noldor were very  talented, especially Feanor . He created three  magnificent jewels, which was the glow of two  trees of Valinor. Melkor after leaving  the dungeon deceive the Elves and the  Valar, feigning repentance, and with the help of  Ungoliant insidiously poisoned the tree and stole  the Silmarils and killed Finw.
  6. 6. Plot.. They were devastated after the destruction of trees so they asked Feanor for access stones to restore the life of the trees, but he refused. When they learned of the theft and the death of his father, he rebelled elves and made a terrible oath to recover Silmarilis. He set out with the elves in Middle- earth, and has attacked the three strains of elves - Teleri and stole their boats.
  7. 7. What’s next ?  Voluntary exiles from Valinor were deprived of care, and Valinor was reinforced. After reaching the Middle for 500 years fought with varying degrees of war elves assisted by two generations Iluvatar Children- People. There were six great battles and many skirmishes. For 400 years the elves were besieging Angband, but after cessation of the siege in turn fell the kingdom of the elves. During this time, events were happening that have passed into history of Middle-earth, and were even mentioned in the Third Age. Beren, son of Barahir and the man in love with the daughter of ThingolGrey Cloak, King of Doriath and Mela Majar - Luthien. To obtain father`s consent to marry he has agreed to get for him one of the Silmarils.
  8. 8. … After many adventures, together with Luthien he has got a trick - in the guise of a werewolf and vampire they went to Angband. There, with the song Luthien knocked Morgoth and Beren took th e Silmarils from his crown. When th ey fled werewolf chieftain bitten Beren`s hand with Sirmaril. They both died, and Luthien, regained the Silmarils, and saluted it his father. He went to Mandos, Judge of the Valar, to implore a second life singing for Beren by singing but lost elven immortality to be with his beloved. From their relationship Dior was born , who
  9. 9. THE STORY…  After the attack of Feanor his daughter Elwing escaped with the Silmarils to the Havens of Sirion, and married a half-elf Eärendil son of Tuor and Idri exiles from Gondolin plundered, and bore him two sons, Elrond and Elros. Eärendil sailed the seas to find Aman and his parents. During one of his voyages sons of Fëanor attacked the harbor to regain the Silmarils, but Elwing together with the stone jumped into the sea, and Ulmo turned it into a swan and helped her joined to her husband . They sailed to Aman, where on behalf of humans and elves have asked for help. Valar and the Elves of Aman went to war, which was to destroy evil forever.
  10. 10. Action . . Eärendil and his wife chose the fate of the elves, and werein Valinor, but Eärendil sailed his ship on the bow of the Silmarilsas a star - a sign. In the Great Battle defeated Morgoth's troops, killed off countless orcs, most Balrogs and Dragons. Morgoth captured, mutil ated and thrown into the void, beyond the world. Elves of Beleriand mostly moved to Valinor, but not all - of Middle- earth was Gil-galad, the highest king Noldor of Middle- earth, Galadriel, Cirdan Builder of Ships and other. Half Elves, the sons of Eärendil had to decide about his fate-Elros became king of the people who for the dedication in the fight against Morgoth got safe place -Númenor and Elrond was among the elves. Beleri and was sunk and changed the shape of the world. There was a second era of the Mediterranean.
  11. 11. Next .  Akallabêth describes the end of Númenor as a result of pride and rebellion of people who succumbed to Sauron's promptings and wanted to become an equal Valar. When they broke the ban, entering Aman, they killed all the participants of the expedition, and all the inhabitants of Númenor and plunged under water. Some exiles who fled from persecution Sauron's minions, led by Elendil and his sons survived.
  12. 12. Books .  Addition of Rings of Power tells of the details of their creation and how Sauron forged in secret a ring yet. "The Silmarillion" is the position for someone who has read "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit" because there will find information that will expand the scope of his knowledge of Middle-earth.
  13. 13. Silmarillion .  It is from the Silmarillion when Tolkien began writing Mediterranean history. Writing it took him a lifetime. The Silmarillion was published in 1977, four years after his death, in developing his son Christopher. Before his death, the author wanted to recast the work, but unfortunately did not manage. J.R.R. Tolkien wanted to publish The Silmarillion shortly after the release of The Hobbit, but the book was rejected by the publisher. Later, after the publication of The Lord of the Rings, fans demanded to know the history of the Elder Days, but the writer has argued that the reluctance of issue Silmarillion: "Zero hobbits, elves and solemn style everywhere”. But The Silmarillion became the most famous work next to the Lord of the Rings by Tolkien. Silmarillion is a collection of stories about the Old Days, which is about the First Age of the World, the preceding era in which the action is played in Lord of the Rings. The Silmarillion comprises five parts. At the beginning they were their own separate tracks, but the wishes of Tolkien were to be published together.
  14. 14. • Ainulindalë - a story about the creation of the world by Eru • Valaquenta - a description of the Valar and Majar, including enemies • Quent Silmarillion - the story of creation and loss Silmarills, three wonderful jewels created by one of the elves named Feanor and Morgoth subject of desire • Akallabêth - describing the downfall of Númenor • Rings of Power and Third Age - a story that briefly summarizes the events of the Third Age, partly described in the novel Lord of the Rings Everything ..
  15. 15. I think…  The Silmarillion is one of the best works of Tolkien. Although there have been problems with the issuance and the consistent content, I think that this book deserves to be called the best. It reflects the emotions that accompanied the author. Tolkien was writing this book all his life, so there is a lot of them. It describes the beginnings of the Elves and The Middle-earth. In my opinion one of the best fantasy books. Unusual events and action that really never ends.
