MOSCOW, October 20. /TASS/. Previously unreleased “the Story of Berane and Luthien” John R. R. Tolkien will be published in may 2017, according to the newspaper The Guardian.
a love Story of man and immortal elf will be published by the publisher HarperCollins.
These characters were so significant for a writer, what are their names carved on the tombstone, installed on the grave of Tolkien and his wife Edith bratt. The story tells that the Union of Beren and Luthien resisted the heroine’s father, a powerful elven Lord Thingol, so he gave man the impossible task with which he coped, and Lucien sacrificed immortality for her lover.
the Book was written in 1917, after Tolkien returned from the front, where he was a signalman. This story is an “important element of evolution” “the Silmarillion,” said the publisher. The upcoming book is the attempt of the writer’s son Christopher Tolkien “to remove the story of Beren and Luthien from the extensive work in which it was embedded” in its original form.
“the Story of Beren and Luthien” edited by Christopher Tolkien and illustrated by Alan Lee will be published in the tenth anniversary edition of “children of Hurin” books, which Tolkien began in 1917-18 and was working on more than thirty years. It was rebuilt by Christopher Tolkien and later became a bestseller.
