Course Description

Starting in February 2018, Mythgard Academy will present a free 17-week seminar on The War of the Ring, the eighth volume of the History of Middle-earth (HoME) series and the third volume of The History of The Lord of the Rings.

Previously, we have had extensive discussions with Dr. Corey Olsen on the first seven volumes in the HoME, The Book of Lost Tales, Part I, The Book of Lost Tales, Part II, The Lays of Beleriand, The Shaping of Middle-earth, The Lost Road, The Return of the Shadow and The Treason of Isengard. We are now well into the second half of the series that explores the development of the manuscripts of J. R. R. Tolkien’s legendarium.

The War of the Ring was originally printed in 1990. Continuing from where the previous volume left off, this book covers the events of Helm’s Deep as they developed, as well as the Ents’ attack on Isengard. It also follows Frodo and Sam on their journey to the Black Gate, through Ithilien (and the meeting with Faramir), and up to Cirith Ungol. Finally, it covers the Battle of Pelennor Field and the coming of Aragorn’s host to the battle. The title for The War of the Ring comes from the fifth volume of the seven-volume edition of The Lord of the Rings.
