#AtoZChallenge: Quenta Silmarillion, Quenya

20 Apr

Q (1)

Quenta Silmarillion ‘History of the Silmarils’  is the title of a collection of works that consist of older works that have been put together and edited throughout the years by many different people. It forms the core of The Silmarillion. It is arranged chronologically. I enjoyed reading The Silmarillion. I will admit it did take me a couple of times to finally get through the whole thing. It is not one that is easily read in a few days. If you haven’t read it then you should especially if you’re a Tolkien fan.

Quenya is the oldest of all the recorded languages of Middle-Earth. It was first written down after the Great Journey of the Eldar. It is considered to be the language of the Elves.

Look forward to reading your comments. 🙂

    I love The Hobbit and LOTR but always found the Silmarillion a bit daunting. I’ll hopefully get to it someday. I didn’t know it represented a collection of disparate works; sounds like the Bible!

      Yes it is. It took me several tries to read it. It is interesting once you do get started reading it.

    I’m a fan of LOTR, but never heard of Quenta Silmarillion. Thanks for telling us about it! 🙂

    Read the Silmarillion when it first came out, and ashamed to say I haven’t read it since (although it sits proudly next to my LOTR set).

      I’m reading it again now because it’s been a few years since I read it the first time. It is a very interesting read.
