Le degrees Age touche à sa fin, et los angeles Terre du Milieu à son crépuscule. los angeles Compagnie de l'Anneau va donc tâcher de déjouer les projets infernaux de Sauron, strength du mal d'autant plus difficile à combattre qu'elle est désincarnée. Qui, des cinq héros, mènera à bien l. a. venture ? Gandalf, grand sage qui seul mesure los angeles portée de los angeles quête ?

Frodon et Sam, qui sont chargés de los angeles part finale de l. a. venture ou Gollum, créature abjecte qui fut un temps dépositaire de l'anneau ? Mais quel est donc le pouvoir de cet anneau tant convoité ? Quelle est donc l. a. signification de l'énigme qui determine en première web page, en manière d'épigraphe ?

Tant de questions qui ne sont qu'une infime partie du mystère féerique qui, depuis 1954, ravit l'imagination, autorisée pour un temps à s'attarder dans un séjour magique aux forêts profondes et ancestrales, aux paysages argentés peuplés d'êtres aériens, de jeunes guerrières intrépides, de destriers sauvages ayant los angeles fierté de leurs maîtres, de viles créatures dont los angeles laideur body reflète l. a. méchanceté... Tous, nous avons rêvé de ce repos de l'âme, de même que nous avons craint, enfants, l. a. risk sourde et inexplicable. Tolkien, lui, a su nommer cet univers, et en faire une épopée passionnante, quête initiatique où l'errance humaine est regardée avec une tolérance rassurante.

Mais quels sont ces petits êtres rigolos et surprenants, ces "hobbits" ? D'où viennent ces accents folkloriques, ce langage essentiel, cette mélancolie onirique qui teinte l'esprit d'un brouillard étrange une fois le quantity refermé ?

Tant de questions auxquelles, heureusement, Tolkien ne répond jamais tout à fait malgré les cartes, généalogies, lexiques et autres appendices passionnants que son mind's eye prolifique a fournis sur l. a. Terre du Milieu. --Sana Tang-Léopold Wauters --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.
