Biblical Motifs in Tolkienís Silmarillion by Fiondil

[Comments - 4] Printer

Summary:

The Silmarillion sometimes reads like something from the Bible. That was deliberate on Tolkien's part. This essay explores three biblical motifs — Creation, the Fall, and what can be called the Saving of the Remnant — and how Tolkien uses them to weave his own unique story of Middle-earth.
