En savoir plus sur l'auteur

Né en 1892 à Bloemfontein (Afrique du Sud), de parents anglais, John Ronald Reuel Tolkien passe son enfance, après la mort de son père en 1896, à Sarehole près de Birmingham (Angleterre), dont sa famille est originaire. Diplômé d'Oxford, il sert dans les Lancashire Fusiliers pendant la Première Guerre mondiale, puis travaille en 1919 au célèbre Dictionnaire d'Oxford. Il obtient ensuite un poste à Leeds, puis une chaire de langue ancienne à Oxford de 1925 à 1945 et, enfin, une chaire de langue et littérature anglaises de 1945 jusqu'à sa retraite, en 1959. Spécialiste de philologie faisant autorité dans le monde entier, J.R.R. Tolkien a publié en 1937 Bilbo le Hobbit, considéré comme un classique de la littérature enfantine ; il tient en 1939 une conférence qui deviendra l'essai Du conte de fées. Paru en 1949, Le fermier Gilles de Ham a séduit également enfants et adultes. J.R.R. Tolkien a travaillé quatorze ans à la trilogie du Seigneur des Anneaux : La Communauté de l'Anneau (1954), Les Deux Tours (1954) et Le Retour du Roi (1955), œuvre magistrale qui s'est imposée dans tous les pays.
Dans Les aventures de Tom Bombadil (1962), Tolkien déploie son talent pour les assonances ingénieuses. En 1968, il enregistre sur disque les Poèmes et chansons de la Terre du Milieu, tirés des Aventures de Tom Bombadil et du Seigneur des Anneaux.
John Ronald Reuel Tolkien est décédé en 1973.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazing 6 mars 2005
Format:Poche
Tolkien is an amazing writer. I enjoyed reading his books, especially The Hobbit, the Lord of the Rings, and the Silmarillion. If you are a Tolkien fan, then, you should read this at least once. Even though it does not flow and hold your interest like The Hobbit or The Lord of the Rings, it still is a good read. This book is a collection of short stories as well as some of Tolkien's notes from the Battle of Unnumbered Tears until the destruction of the Ring. True this book is not like his previous novels, but you will certainly love it. You will want to read it more than once.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 La mythologie tolkiennesque continue. 6 mars 2003
Format:Poche
Les lecteurs de Tolkien connaissent bien le monde de la Terre du Milieu telle qu'elle est décrite dans"Le Seigneur des Anneaux", mais s'ils veulent en savoir plus sur le passé de ce monde extraordinaire, s'ils veulent mieux comprendre le pourquoi des relations entre les Elfes, les Nains et les Hommes, s'ils veulent savoir l'Histoire de Numenor, alors il leur faut lire ce livre extraordinaire.
Laissez-vous entraîner dans ce monde fabuleux, et apprenez l'histoire de Turin, celle des rois de Numenor, et l'histoire de la création des royaumes de Gondor et de Rohan.
Un livre épique, qui se lit comme les annales historiques d'un monde imaginaire.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Unfinished, but not unremarkable. 30 mai 2000
Par Tuor - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
When JRR Tolkien died, he left a massive amount of material that, for various reasons, had not been published. Some of this material was sufficiently comprehensive and consistant with published materials that Tolkien's son, Christopher, was able to compile it into 'The Silmarillion'.
But there were also several stories, polished, but not quite complete, which pertained to the events in 'The Lord of the Rings' -- things like the story of how Isildur lost the One Ring; like what, exactly, were the Wizards: who sent them and why? Questions like 'How did Galadriel and Celeborn come to rule Lorien?' and 'Just what happened at the Fords of Isen when Saruman attacked Rohan and Theoden's son, Theodred, was slain?'
All these questions and many more are addressed in the many unfinished tales that are to be found in this book: tales from all three of the ages of Middle-earth; from heroes such as Tuor and Turin in the First Age, to Bilbo and Gandalf in the Third. Almost every tale is told in a different style, but each is satisfying, up to the point where it breaks off: then frustration and speculation set in, but also a deep appreciation for the scope and grandeur of Middle-earth and the man who created it.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Got questions? Here are many of the answers. 21 octobre 2002
Par bixodoido - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
This collection of stories is just what the name implies--unfinished tales from both the continent of Middle-Earth and the island of Numenor. These tales are great and rich in detail, but one should be warned that they are not your everyday fantasy story. Both The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion are complicated and not casually understood, but this book tops both of them in terms of complexity.
The story of the compilation of the book is this: Tolkien's son Christopher collected a mass of writings of his father--notes scrawled on scraps of paper, unpublished essays, even letters dealing with Middle-Earth. He edited and organized them, and prepared them for publication, and the result is this book. Because of this, many of the stories are missing detail and have some speculation, and all of them relate to other events related in Tolkien's other works.
Because of the relation to Tolkien's other work, this book should be read AFTER The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and The Silmarillion, and should only be approached by those who want to seriously study and learn all there is to know of the world Tolkien created. For the casual reader this compilation may be somewhat tedious, for there is much detail lacking and it is assumed that you already have a knowledge of the history of Middle-Earth as outlined in Tolkien's other books.
For those who are serious about study, though, this book is a great addition to the already extensive world of JRR Tolkien. Ever wonder where Gandalf and the other wizards came from? Why Bilbo was chosen to accompany the Dwarves in The Hobbit? What the palantiri stones do, and where they came from? If so, then this is the book for you. You will find a collection of stories that will greatly enrich the lore of Middle-Earth (and Numenor).
For serious readers of Tolkien, this book is highly recommended. No one does fantasy like he does, and even these scattered fragments of narrative are enough to leave you begging for more.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The next best thing to The Silmarillion 14 décembre 2000
Par Michael Martinez - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
The Silmarillion raised so many questions that Tolkien fans almost felt cheated when the book came out in 1977. Fortunately, Christopher Tolkien foresaw the readers' hunger for more material about Middle-earth would not be quenched and he promised in the foreword to publish some related material when time permitted.
What came next was Unfinished Tales, a less-than-satisfying collection of stories and notes about the heroes and kings of the three Ages. But the disappointment didn't lay in the quality of the stories. Rather, it was only their various states of incompleteness, even though some tales (like "The Disaster of the Gladden Fields") were truly fully formed.
The book is most valuable to people who want to know more about the histories and heroes of Middle-earth. People looking for Hobbit-lore will be disappointed. The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien reveals more about Hobbits than Unfinished Tales. But there are exciting moments and awesome scenes, such as when Ulmo rises out of the sea before Tuor, and when Isildur realizes that the One Ring has betrayed him to his doom, which stand alongside the most memorable passages of The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and The Silmarillion.
Unfinished Tales shows us Tolkien at his best when he was doing nothing more than just writing out his thoughts concerning various peoples and events only mentioned in The Lord of the Rings.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 lovely book 6 novembre 2003
Par Mitali - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Poche
Though Unfinished Tales cannot be read as a book in its own right, any one who comes to it after reading The Lord of the Rings and The Silmarillion will indubitably find it interesting, as the book gives various nuggets of information about characters, events and places that are only hinted at in the other two books; e.g. the chapter on the Istari. 'Old' legends or myths of Middle-Earth, like the actual story of Isildur's fall in the Gladden Fields, are given in their 'authoritative' versions. A number of other tales, like the history of Galadriel and Celeborn or the Black Riders' hunt for Frodo and the Ring, are told in different versions or from differing perspectives.
A particular gem is the story of Aldarion and Erendis, the only story of Numenor before its fall. Through it, Numenor becomes a living place, not just a name from legends.
A map of Numenor is also included in the book.
A lovely book - no other words for it.

Par Doctroid - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
"Unfinished Tales" is a must-have for any Tolkien lover with a desire to know more about Middle-Earth.
It is not, despite what some of these reviews say, a novel. It is a collection of shorter writings, all of them (in case it wasn't obvious) unfinished, in one sense or another, edited with notes and commentary by J. R. R. Tolkien's son Christopher.
It stands functionally somewhere between "The Silmarillion" and the later-published books; the former was presented as a more-or-less complete work (even though Tolkien never really stopped working on it) while the latter are intended more as a study of the evolution of Tolkien's Middle-Earth universe. "Unfinished Tales" shows some of this evolution, too, with different and sometimes contradictory versions of many of the stories; but the emphasis is on the stories and not their writing.
Much as I enjoyed "The Silmarillion", I would not describe it as required reading for all Tolkien fans -- it's stylistically very different from "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings", much less oriented to a popular audience and more difficult for many readers. The first two parts of "Unfinished Tales" likewise. Those who revel in the rich mythology of "The Silmarillion" will find more to treasure here; those whose Tolkien appreciation doesn't extend to "The Silmarillion" won't enjoy the first half of "Unfinished Tales" either.
But the latter half of the book will appeal to any LotR fan. The background on the history of the relationship between Gondor and Rohan; the recounting of Sauron's desperate search for the Ring; Gandalf's recollections of how and why he brought the odd couple of Thorin Oakenshield and Bilbo Baggins together -- great stuff, and perhaps best of all is the terse and tense recounting of "The Disaster of the Gladden Fields", when Isuldur lost the Ring and his life, setting in motion the whole War of the Ring centuries later.
BUT... all this is marred in the 2001 hardcover edition by, let us not mince words, the rape of the map. I bought this book expecting the large, pull-out map, updated beyond what's in LotR, that was included in the first edition. Instead it's reduced to the size of two book pages and printed before the title page! Not only does the reduction render it near-unreadable, but of course the binding seam goes right down the middle, obliterating names and locations of some of the most significant places in Middle-Earth from Rivendell to Dol Amroth. Houghton Mifflin ought to be ashamed. With a proper map I would have given five stars; with this atrocity, I can give only three.
