Tolkien began creating the mythology, traditions and language of Middle-earth long before The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit ever found their way onto the printed page. Known as The Silmarillion, a book Tolkien would add to throughout his life, this rich tapestry of tales told of the creation of the world in the First Age, the coming of Elves and Men, the theft of the Silmarils - the jewels containing the pure light that illuminated Middle-earth - and the wars between the first Dark Lord and the High Elves.
