Tolkienwhich was later fitted as a trilogy. It was written in stages between andwith much of it being written during World War II. Starting from quiet beginnings in The Shirethe story ranges across Middle-earth and follows the courses of the War of the Ring.
The main story is followed by six appendices that provide a wealth of historical and linguistic background material,  as well as an index listing every character, place, songand sword. Although a major work in itself, the story is merely the last movement of a larger mythological cycle, or legendarium, that Tolkien had worked on for many years since The Lord of the Rings has inspired and continues to inspire short stories, video gamesartworks and musical works see Works inspired by J.
Adaptations of The Lord of the Rings in particular have been made for the radio, for the theatre, and for film. At the end of the First Age of Middle-earth, Sauron survived the catastrophic defeat and chaining of his lord, the ultimate Dark LordMorgoth Bauglir who was formerly counted as one of the Valathe angelic Powers of the world.
During the Second AgeSauron schemed to gain dominion over Middle-earth. In the disguise as "Annatar" or Lord of Gifts, he aided Celebrimbor and other Elven-smiths of Eregion in the forging of magical rings which confer various powers and effects on their wearers.
The most important of these were The Nine, the seven an the three which he did not touch or know of the three.
However, he then secretly forged a Great Ring of his own, the One Ringby which he planned to enslave the wearers of the other Rings of Power. This plan failed when the Elves became aware of him and took off their Rings.
Sauron then launched a war during which he captured sixteen and distributed them to lords and kings of Dwarves and Men; these Rings were known as the Seven and the Nine respectively. The Dwarf-lords proved too tough to enslave although their natural desire for wealth, especially gold, increased; this brought more conflict between them and other races.
The Three Sauron failed to capture, and remained in the possession of the Elves who forged these independently. After seven years of siege, Sauron himself was ultimately forced to engage in single combat with the leaders. Isildur was advised to destroy the One Ring by the only way it could be — by casting it into the volcanic Mount Doom where it was forged — but he refused, attracted to its beauty and kept it as compensation for the deaths of his father and brother weregild.
So began the Third Age of Middle-earth. Two years later, while journeying to RivendellIsildur and his soldiers were ambushed by a band of Orcs at what was eventually called the Disaster of the Gladden Fields. While the latter were almost all killed, Isildur escaped by putting on the Ring — which made mortal wearers invisible.
However, the Ring slipped from his finger while he was swimming in the great River Anduin ; he was killed by Orc-arrows and the Ring was lost for two millennia.
He fled to the Misty Mountains where he slowly withered and became a disgusting, slimy creature called Gollum. In The Hobbitset 60 years before the events in The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien relates the story of the seemingly accidental finding of the Ring by another hobbit, Bilbo Bagginswho takes it to his home, Bag End.
While Fatty acted as decoy for the Ringwraiths, Frodo and the others set off to take the Ring to the Elven haven of Rivendell. They were aided by the enigmatic Tom Bombadilwho saved them from Old Man Willow and took them in for a few days of feasting, rest, and counsel.
However, Frodo was gravely wounded by the leader of the Ringwraiths, though he managed to recover under the care of the Half-elven lord Elrond. A high councilattended by representatives of the major races of Middle-earth; Elves, Dwarves, and Men, and presided over by Elrond, decide that the only course of action that can save Middle-earth is to destroy the Ring by taking it to Mordor and casting it into Mount Doomwhere it was forged.
Their journey took them through the Mines of Moriawhere they were being followed by the wretched creature Gollumwhom Bilbo had met in the Goblin-caves of the Misty Mountains years before. The full tale of their meeting is told in The Hobbit.
Gollum long possessed the Ring before it passed to Bilbo. Gandalf explained that Gollum belonged to a people "of hobbit-kind" before he came upon the Ring, which corrupted him.
Gandalf battled a giant subterranean demon, the Balrogand fell into a deep chasm, apparently to his death. Here, the Lady Galadriel showed Frodo and Sam visions of the past, present, and future.The Lord of the Rings is an epic high fantasy novel written by J.
