Middle-earth seen by the barbarians, vol. 2

By Codex Regius

General non-fiction, Fantasy | Paperback, eBook


This double volume compiles the updated and illustrated essays on the lesser Mannish peoples in J.R.R.Tolkien's Middle-earth books that one author of Codex Regius had previously published on Lalaith's Middle-earth Science Pages. J.R.R. Tolkien has frequently been accused of racist attitudes. But Tolkien was of course well aware of the consequences of racial politics, having passed through both World Wars, and there is much evidence in his texts that the ethnic concepts even of the "good" Men of Middle-earth often led to tragic consequences. This double volume incorporates many references to the lesser Mannish peoples of Middle-earth, dispersed through many of Tolkien's books, and analyses them to compile the history of the First, Second and Third Age as seen by the losers. In addition, the unknown history of Umbar is told and a grid of latitudes and longitudes is drawn on the map of Middle-earth. This book was written for the fans of Middle-earth. Familiarity with the books of J.R.R.Tolkien is assumed.

Codex Regius is a pen name and label of a pair of two authors from Slove­nia and Germany, respectively. One author is a university engineer of chemistry and, before both set up a freelance trans­lation business, has spent her time trying to convey the wonders of the Peri­odic Table to mostly unreceptive students. The other is a graduate of phys­ical engineering and former technical editor. Both are working from home, which the children find very convenient when they come from school. The two authors of Codex Regius are married to each other and still trying to find a common language.
