The Lord of the Rings
The Lord of the Rings: One Volume | J.R.R. Tolkien
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind themIn ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others. But the One Ring was taken from him, and though he sought it throughout Middle-earth, it remained lost to him. After many ages it fell by chance into the hands of the hobbit Bilbo Baggins.From Sauron's fastness in the Dark Tower of Mordor, his power spread far and wide. Sauron gathered all the Great Rings to him, but always he searched for the One Ring that would complete his dominion.When Bilbo reached his eleventy-first birthday he disappeared, bequeathing to his young cousin Frodo the Ruling Ring and a perilous quest: to journey across Middle-earth, deep into the shadow of the Dark Lord, and destroy the Ring by casting it into the Cracks of Doom.The Lord of the Rings tells of the great quest undertaken by Frodo and the Fellowship of the Ring: Gandalf the Wizard; the hobbits Merry, Pippin, and Sam; Gimli the Dwarf; Legolas the Elf; Boromir of Gondor; and a tall, mysterious stranger called Strider.This new edition includes the fiftieth-anniversary fully corrected text setting and, for the first time, an extensive new index.J.R.R. Tolkien (1892-1973), beloved throughout the world as the creator of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion, was a professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford, a fellow of Pembroke College, and a fellow of Merton College until his retirement in 1959. His chief interest was the linguistic aspects of the early English written tradition, but while he studied classic works of the past, he was creating a set of his own.

Okay. So about a few months ago I finished The Fellowship of the Ring, and I was quite surprised Gandalf died! As much as I've heard about this character and knowing there would be two more parts, I wasn't expecting that at all.
Does he come back to life? You can tell me, I won't be upset lol.

#poetrymatters #king @TheSpineView

Yes, of course I knew this was by Tolkien 😳

All that is gold does not glitter
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes, a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

TheSpineView I didn't think of that one! Excellent! 🧡🧡🧡 2w

I am so excited! I've been writing on Medium for a while now. Nothing notable ever happened... until today, when one of my articles was curated! That means that it was chosen by the stuff for a special distrubution.
It's the very first time that it happens to me and l'm so excited!
And gals of the #FellowshipOfTolkien wouldn't you believe it's about the celebration of out first anniversary? 😆

JazzFeathers I'm afraid September it's too soon for me. We of the #FellowshipOfTolkien are planning to reread The Lord of the Rings at some point, but we want to finish the History of the Lord of the Rings first. We're starting the third book (out of four) tomorrow. I think we'll need another couple of months. 2mo
JazzFeathers On further consideration, l think l'll join, though only for The Hobbit 😁 2mo

I really love this wall sticker... but they are missing one I would have to add we travel to “a galaxy far far away” ... I just don‘t know where I would fit it in ... unless it was written after “ Once upon a time and I added “and back again” after that way we get Lord of the rings in there as well 😝🙌🏽👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼📖😋

Puredragonstar I have one of these on my wall... when I ordered it they allowed me to alter the lines, it cost a bit more but they can make the poem to follow your geekdoms. 3mo

1. It would look like Mordor and there would be dragons and Orcs with the occasional elf or hobbit running across.

2. Litsy, Spotify, Audible
