Middle-earth, the world in which the stories take place, is as real and complex as our own. Events, geography and names were created with care and loving attention by Tolkien, who wanted every single detail of his books to fit into their total pattern. A belief in perfection, the fun of the sub-creation and the desire to create something so totally convincing that the reader could believe in it in a sense as actual history, involved him in map-making, endless charts of dates and events and the development of his many invented languages. The Complete Guide to Middle-earth was designed to add to the enjoyment of the reader of The Hobbit, The Lord of thje Rings and The Silmarillion by bringing together in an A-Z sequence facts and information about names, languages, places and events from these central books which will provide an indispensable aid to every reader's discovery of Tolkien's world. With the appearance of The Silmarillion, the reader can now appreciate the full scope and significance of the history of Aman and Middle-earth, the central stages in the great drama of the Creation of E3.
