Tolkien , curata dal figlio Christopher Tolkien. Il volume contiene brani riguardanti le seguenti tematiche: Revisioni del del Silmarillion, che testimoniano la drastica rivisitazione di Tolkien riguardo alle sue leggende. Annals of Aman "Annali di Aman" ; una dettagliata cronologia dalla creazione del mondo fino alla fine della Prima Era , inclusa una spiegazione sul computo del tempo durante gli Anni dei Valar. Laws and Customs among the Eldar "Leggi e costumi tra gli Eldar" ; svariati scritti e leggende sugli Eldar , in particolare riguardo ai matrimoni e all'assegnazione dei nomi , e sulla concezione tolkieniana dell'anima e del corpo. Athrabeth Finrod ah Andreth; una discussione tra due personaggi, il re elfico Finrod Felagund e Andreth , una donna mortale, riguardo alle differenze metafisiche tra Elfi e Uomini. Tale of Adanel "Racconto di Adanel" ; la versione tolkieniana del peccato originale. Myths Transformed "Miti trasformati" ; numerosi frammenti su Morgoth , Sauron e l'origine degli Orchi.
But to force such a revelation, or to induce it by any lying or deception, even for supposedly good purposes including the good of the person so persuaded or dominated , is absolutely forbidden. To do so is a crime, and the good in the purposes of those who commit this crime switfly becomes corrupted.
And with regard to the Enemy, Melkor, in particular, he could not penetrate by distant mind-sight his thought and purposes, since Melkor remained in a fixed and powerful will to withhold his mind: which physically expressed took shape in the darkness and shadows that surrounded him.
He, like Melkor, practically never is seen or heard of outside or far away from his own halls and permanent residence. Why is this? For no very profound reason. The Government is always in Whitehall. King Arthur is usually in Camelot or Caerleon, and news and adventures come there and arise there.
But, if you keep him at home, the issue of any particular event since it cannot then result in a final checkmate can remain in literary suspense. He did this so as to control the hroa, the flesh or physical matter, of Arda. He attempted to identify himself with it.
A vaster, and more perilous, procedure, though of similar sort to the operation of Sauron with the Rings. Thus, outside the Blessed Realm, all matter was likely to have a Melkor ingredient , and those who had bodies, nourished by the hora of Arda, had as it were a tendency, small or great, towards Melkor: they were none of them wholly free of him in their incarnate form, and their bodies had an effect upon their spirits.
But in this way Morgoth lost or exchanged, or transmuted the greater part of his original angelic powers, of mind and spirit, while gaining a terrible grip upon the physical world. For this reason he had to be fought, mainly by physical force, and enormous material ruin was a probable consequence of any direct combat with him, victorious or otherwise.
This is the chief explanation of the constant reluctance of the Valar to come into open battle against Morgoth. Sauron's, relatively smaller, power was concentrated; Morgoth's vast power was disseminated. The whole of Middle-earth was Morgoth's Ring, though temporarily his attention was mainly upon the North-west.
Unless swiftly successful, War against him might well end in reducing all Middle-earth to chaos, possibly even all Arda. It is easy to say: It was the task and function of the Elder King to govern Arda and make it possible for the Children of Eru to live in it unmolested.
But the dilemma of the Valar was this: Arda could only be liberated by a physical battle; but a probable result of such a battle was the irretrievable ruin of Arda. Moreover, the final eradication of Sauron as a power directing evil was achievable by the destruction of the Ring. No such eradication of Morgoth was possible, since this required the complete disintegration of the matter of Arda.
Sauron's power was not for example in gold as such, but in a particular form or shape made of a particular portion of total gold. Morgoth's power was disseminated throughout Gold, if nowhere absolute for he did not create Gold it was nowhere absent. It was this Morgoth-element in matter, indeed, which was a prerequisite for such magic and other evils as Sauron practised with it and upon it. It is quite possible, of course, that certain elements or conditions of matter had attracted Morgoth's special attention mainly, unless in the remote past, for reasons of his own plans.
For example, all gold in Middle-earth seems to have had a specially evil trend — but not silver. Water is represented as being almost entirely free of Morgoth. This, of course, does not mean that any particular sea, stream, river, well, or even vessel of water could not be poisoned or defiled — as all things could.
The longer the Past, the more nearly defined the Future, and the less room for important change untrammelled action, on a physical plane, that is not destructive in purpose. The Past, once achieved , has become part of the Music in being.
The tales of The Silmarillion are set in an age when Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, dwelt in Middle-Earth, and the High Elves made war upon him for the recovery of the Silmarils, the jewels containing the pure light of Valinor. SlideShare Explore Search You.
