The Silmarillion Recap: Quenta Silmarillion (Part XI)

Fëanor’s lust for revenge has driven him into Middle-earth, where Morgoth/Melkor has returned to his old fortresses. It’s time to get even in “Of the Revenge of the Sith.” Wait. 716 more words


Tolkien – The Seven Deadly Sins II : Lust

Lust – The Second Sin of Tolkien

          In stark contrast to GRR Martin’s epic saga (no pun intended) Tolkien’s conception of fantasy is considered completely devoid of sexual desire or content – or at least the primitive, base urges of Tolkien’s manuscripts are glossed over, as if the very word were the worst of all taboos. 769 more words

The Silmarillion Recap: Quenta Silmarillion (Part X)

Chapter 12 is short. While I could combine it with the next chapter, there are two reasons that I’ve chosen not to: 1, Chapter 13 is all about Fëanor and his arrival in Middle-earth which is a very different topic, and 2, I just returned from a trip less than 12 hours ago so I’m running on very little sleep. 543 more words

Il Silmarillion: capitolo 12

Nel capitolo dodicesimo del Silmarillion, finalmente entriamo in scena noi.


In questo capitolo brevissimo, come lascia intendere il titolo, finalmente entriamo in scena noi, gli Uomini Mortali; e non è strano che questo capitolo sia così breve, poiché – sebbene più avanti ne sentiremo parlare parecchio – è pur sempre vero che i Mortali non hanno grande ruolo, nel Silmarillion: questa è la storia degli elfi, mentre gli uomini hanno un ruolo centrale nel Signore degli Anelli ( e in tutte le epoche successive, naturalmente ). 709 more words
