The Book of Lost Tales was the first major work of imagination by J.R.R. Tolkien, begun in 1916-17 when he was twenty-five years old and left incomplete several years later. It stands at the beginning of the entire conception of Middle-earth and Valinor, for these tales were the first form of the myths and legends that came to be called The Silmarillion. Embedded in English legend, they are set in the narrative frame of a great westward voyage over the Ocean by a mariner named Eriol (or AElfwine) to Tol Eressea, the Lonely Isle, where elves dwelt; from him they learned their true history, the Lost Tales of Elfinesse. In these Tales are found the earliest accounts and original ideas of Gods and Elves, Dwarves, Balrogs, and Orcs; of the Silmarils and the Two Trees of Valinor; of Nargothrond and Gondolin; of the geography and cosmology of Middle-earth. Volume One contains the tales of The Music of the Ainur, The Building of valinor, The Chaining of Melko, The coming of the Elves and The Flight of the Noldoli, among others. Each tale is followed by a short essay by Christopher Tolkien, the author's son and literary executor.… (més)

Rating this a 3 primarily so as not to invoke Dave's ire. He's right that the tales are "turgid, tedious, and unconscionably self-indulgent." But then, he also uses "belike" in a nonsensical way.

Where I differ from him is in trying to imagine what the reviews would be in a world that didn't contain Tolkien's other published works. First of all, I shudder to think of such a world. Secondly, we don't live in that world, so what's the point in rating a book from that subjunctive point of view? Such arguments are simply attempts to justify one's own peevishness.

The Book of Lost Tales is a solid 3. No, the tales are not great, and yes sometimes they are downright terrible. But the book does precisely what it's supposed to do: Provide early, unrefined versions of stories that NEVER got to a point where Tolkien himself was comfortable publishing them. It's for the Tolkien lovers who want to delve into that minutiae. There's no reason to criticize the book simply because you're not one of those people.

I read The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, and the Silmarilion (in that order). I read them after seeing the movies. I love those books. Part one of the Book of Lost Tales is interesting and continuously shows the author's surprising amount of imagination. However, my comments here are based upon reading only about half the book. It really is like reading a history book and doesn't draw you in to fall in love with any characters, places, or groups of people. I may pick up the book and try finishing it later, but it's going on the shelf for now. I was planning on buying the whole set. I'm glad I bought only the first one. ( )

Universo fantastico di immagini e di personale mitologia, i ''Racconti ritrovati'' segnano l'inizio della creazione fiabesca di J.R.R. Tolkien. Vi si trovano, in forma germinale e perciò misteriosa e allusiva, i grandi temi narrativi del cosmo tolkieniano, che accompagneranno poi per decenni la sua straordinaria produzione: gli Ainur, i grandi Dèi, che si innamorano del mondo da loro creato e vi si rifugiano, edificando le dimore leggendarie; la lotta mai conclusa contro Melko, il dio enigmatico e maligno; l'avvento nel mondo degli Elfi, creature di Ilévatar. Nella magica Casetta del Gioco Perduto proprio gli Elfi inscenano dinanzi agli occhi di Eriol, il marinaio assetato di avventura e di antiche conoscenze, queste storie del mondo che precedono la nascita del genere umano. Iniziati tra il 1916 e il 1917, quando J.R.R. Tolkien aveva solo venticinque anni, i ''Racconti ritrovati'' sono qui accompagnati dal puntuale commento di Christopher Tolkien, il figlio del grande scrittore, che offre la chiave di lettura e l'ideale raccordo con gli altri testi del ciclo tolkieniano, e in particolare con ''Il Silmarillion''. Insieme ai ''Racconti perduti'', questo libro forma il primo volume dell'opera monumentale di Tolkien, ''La storia della Terra di Mezzo'', per la prima volta qui presentata nella traduzione aggiornata a cura della Società Tolkieniana Italiana. Titolo originale: ''The Book of Lost Tales - Part I'' (1983).

For serious Tolkien fans, this is a must-read. For those who only liked the movies, this is not the book for you! Christopher Tolkien's scholarly approach is sometimes meticulous to the point of tedious, but I'm sure we all appreciate his care to present his father's work accurately and in context. I was left in even greater awe of Tolkien's genius and immediately began reading The Book of Lost Tales Vol. II. ( )

It is a monumental effort to have begun this work, and Christopher Tolkien is to be commended on his persistence with this look at his father's earliest notes.

For Tolkien fans it is fascinating to see how these tales emerge. For a writer who is interested in world-building, it is a good way to see how the process works and how many, many versions a tale has to take before it is considered "complete." And yes, I know that these are chapters that Tolkien never completed in his lifetime, but they became [The Silmarillion]. Many of them are more detailed than what was eventually published, and I think the best example of this expansion is Chapter VIII, "The Tale of the Sun and the Moon." It is so much more fleshed out and more detailed and described than what came into "Silmarillion" and I just totally loved it. ( )

On the cover of one of the now very battered 'High School Exercise Books' in which some of the Lost Tales were composed my father wrote: The Cottage of Lost Play, which introduceth [the] Book of Lost Tales; an on the cover is written, in my mother's hand, her initials,l E.M.T., and a date, Feb. 12th 1917.
