It was written like a book for children and immediately scored a success. His most famous work, The Lord of the Rings, is an extremely long work written in six books and published in three volumes: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return of the King. It is not easy to tell the contents of this book, because it’s not only extended, but also entangled and complex.
The Lord of the Rings takes place in a very vivid world called Middle-Earth. This world, although completely invented by Tolkien, contains its own races, cultures, histories, and most impressively its own writing systems and languages. The Lord of the Rings presents us with the age-old battle between good and evil. Sauron, the Lord of Mordor, created magical rings, the Rings of Power. He gave three of them to the Elven kings, seven to the Dwarf lords and nine to the Mortal Men. He created also one ring, the Ruling Ring, for himself. It ruled the other rings and made Sauron powerful beyond all belief. He wanted to enslave the free races, so a war begun, in which the Ring was cut off Sauron’s finger. The Ring, which could be best described as having its own intelligence, moved itself from owner to owner through the years, corrupting each owner and making them fanatically obsessed with it. As years had flowed, the Enemy, Sauron, who’s soul wasn’t destroyed, became stronger. But he still lacked the thing to give him strength and knowledge to beat down all the resistance, he lacked the Ruling Ring. He was seeking it thoroughly and sends his nine Ringwraiths to bring him the precious ring. The current ring owner was Frodo Baggins, a hobbit. He became it from his uncle, Bilbo, who had stolen it from a creature named Gollum years ago. Frodo’s friend, conjuror Gandalf warned him and told him, that he had to bring the ring to the House of Elrond, an old and wise Elf, where a meeting should be held, on which the decision had to be made, what will happen with the dangerous ring next. Together with his three hobbit friends, Sam, Pippin (Peregrin) and Merry (Meriadoc), Frodo left his home, the Shire, and his journey started. But the Ringwraithts, the Nazguls, were following them and the journey turned to a flew. With the help of Tom Bombadil, Arwen and Aragorn, also called Strider, they finally arrived safe to Elrond’s house in the Rivendell. On the meeting here it is decided, that the Ring has to be destroyed and that can be done only by throwing it to the Cracks of Doom.
