I have to admit that this had a lot more language history than I expected. Every time it started to get interesting, it went down another rabbit hole of explaining a word in depth. Maybe I should have expected this but it wasn’t quite what I was hoping for.

David Day ha escrito un completo bestiario que incluye los nombres de las criaturas y monstruos imaginados por Tolkien, así como una exhaustiva relación de razas, ciudades, reinos, deidades, flora, batallas y los infinitos sucesos que tuvieron lugar en la Tierra Media.

Una obra de investigación literaria sobre los cuentos y leyendas que inspiraron a J.R.R. Tolkien.

David Day muestra que El Señor de los Anillos continúa una larga tradición que nació junto con las civilizaciones y que J.R.R. Tolkien creó una nueva mitología para los lectores del siglo veinte inspirándose en leyendas y mitos de la antigüedad.
Se acompaña con doce ilustraciones en color de Alan Lee, artista y ilustrador de El Señor de los Anillos.

The second book I've gotten from David Day about Tolkien's Middle-Earth (the first being The Atlas of Middle-Earth). Both come with wonderful illustrations and great information. This is a bit more in-depth out of universe than the previous one which was mostly all in-universe.

Reading up on some of the influences, mythologies, and legends that Tolkien used to create the various monsters/realms/ideas behind his writing was fascinating.

This is a fast, quick, engaging read for anyone interested or curious or just loves Tolkien's Middle-Earth and the universe and mythology behind it.… (mere)
