Beren and Luthien Cover Image
By J. R. R. Tolkien, Christopher Tolkien (Editor), Alan Lee (Illustrator)
ISBN: 9781328791825
Availability: On Our Shelves Now
Published: Houghton Mifflin - June 1st, 2017

If you’ve read the Silmarillion, you know the tale of Beren and Lúthien. How Beren, a mortal man fell in love with the elven Lúthien, and their quest to recover a Silmaril from the evil Morgoth. But the tale –as was so often the case with Tolkien—was written in many variations throughout his life. Although most versions have been collected in Christopher Tolkien’s 12 volume History of Middle-earth series, for the first time the tales of Beren and Lúthien are collected together with light commentary. Whether you’re a casual fan, or whether you’ve poured over the HoMe series, there is a lot to savor in this book, and it is definitely one to add to your collection! – Kelly
