In 2017 will see the light of an unknown book by Tolkien about the love of elf and man Росбалт.RU

the Book is about a man named Beren, and the elf Luciani written by John Tolkien and still unreleased, will be released in may 2017, when it will be 100 years since the first mention of the writer of these characters 10 years after the release reconstructed by Christopher Tolkien, son of the writer of the novel “Children of Hurin”.

the Output is a new story of the author of “Lord of the rings” announced the publisher HarperCollins. The love story of elf and human is incredibly meant a lot to the writer: the names of the characters even listed on the tombstone of John Ronald Rowell Tolkien and his wife Edith.

according to The Guardian, the writer’s younger son, Christopher Tolkien, who had earlier finalized the draft and prepared for publication his father’s “the Silmarillion”, has decided to release the story of Beren and Luthien a separate book, using previously unpublished texts and fragments, which he had heard from his father.

Beren and Luthien originated in 1917, after Tolkien returned from the Somme, where he served as a signalman during the First world war. In “the Silmarillion” describes how people fell in love with the elf and sought her hand, despite the fact that father Luthien, the elven ruler who was against their marriage.

Lovers had to go through terrible trials to be together. One of the characters in Lord of the rings, elf ruler Elrond is a descendant of the legendary couple in the fourth generation, and his daughter, Arwen, repeats the fate of Luthien, refusing immortality for the love of man.
