The Silmarillion Audiobook Part 2 - by J R R Tolkien
Beren and Lúthien (book)
The publication was compiled by Christopher Tolkien , a year before the same was done with the tale of the Fall of Gondolin. Tolkien, which were published as The Silmarillion. Returning from France and the battle of the Somme at the end of , he wrote the tale in the following year. 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. The intent of the book is to extract a 'single narrative' out of the ever evolving materials that make up the tale of Beren and Luthien. It does not contain every version or edit to the story, but those chosen by Christopher Tolkien which he believed would offer the most 'clarity' without need to over explain the complexities of the changes.
