Their worth, in Tolkien's universe, was very great, even to the Valar, as they were unique and irreplaceable. The Silmarils themselves are said to produce their own light, which comes from the Two Trees, but also to reflect the light of any other lights that come near them. Later, at the healing effort of the Valar, one of the trees bore a silver flower, and the other bore a golden fruit before their death. They were sent to the sky, and became the Sun and the Moon, to illuminate Middle-Earth against Melkor. But neither sphere radiated the original light of the trees, that was free of Ungoliant's poison. The Silmarils then contained all the remaining unmarred light of the Two Trees. After this deed, Melkor fled from Valinor to his fortress Angband in the north of Middle-earth.

It was a nasty cleft to be in for a young man with too much imagination and little physical courage.

By the time he passed his finals in July , Tolkien recalled that the hints were "becoming outspoken from relatives". In a letter to Edith, Tolkien complained: "Gentlemen are rare among the superiors, and even human beings rare indeed. Tolkien took up lodgings near the training camp. On 2 June , Tolkien received a telegram summoning him to Folkestone for posting to France.

He later wrote: "Junior officers were being killed off, a dozen a minute. Parting from my wife then On 7 June, he was informed that he had been assigned as a signals officer to the 11th Service Battalion, Lancashire Fusiliers. The battalion was part of the 74th Brigade , 25th Division.

While waiting to be summoned to his unit, Tolkien sank into boredom. To pass the time, he composed a poem entitled The Lonely Isle, which was inspired by his feelings during the sea crossing to Calais. To evade the British Army's postal censorship , he also developed a code of dots by which Edith could track his movements. Instead, he was required to "take charge of them, discipline them, train them, and probably censor their letters If possible, he was supposed to inspire their love and loyalty.

Not one in a million is fit for it, and least of all those who seek the opportunity. In between terms behind the lines at Bouzincourt , he participated in the assaults on the Schwaben Redoubt and the Leipzig salient. Tolkien's time in combat was a terrible stress for Edith, who feared that every knock on the door might carry news of her husband's death.

Edith could track her husband's movements on a map of the Western Front. According to the memoirs of the Reverend Mervyn S. Imperial War Museum , London. We dossed down for the night in the hopes of getting some sleep, but it was not to be.

We no sooner lay down than hordes of lice got up. So we went round to the Medical Officer, who was also in the dugout with his equipment, and he gave us some ointment which he assured us would keep the little brutes away. We anointed ourselves all over with the stuff and again lay down in great hopes, but it was not to be, because instead of discouraging them it seemed to act like a kind of hors d'oeuvre and the little beggars went at their feast with renewed vigour.

He was invalided to England on 8 November Among their number were Rob Gilson of the Tea Club and Barrovian Society, who was killed on the first day of the Somme while leading his men in the assault on Beaumont Hamel. Fellow T.

Tolkien's battalion was almost completely wiped out following his return to England. Photo by Ernest Brooks. Tolkien might well have been killed himself, but he had suffered from health problems and had been removed from combat multiple times. Tolkien wrote that the experience taught him, "a deep sympathy and feeling for the Tommy ; especially the plain soldier from the agricultural counties".

He remained profoundly grateful for the lesson. For a long time, he had been imprisoned in a tower, not of pearl, but of ivory. By all but one of my close friends were dead. Lost Tales represented Tolkien's attempt to create a mythology for England, a project he would abandon without ever completing.

In a letter, Tolkien described his son John as " conceived and carried during the starvation-year of and the great U-Boat campaign round about the Battle of Cambrai , when the end of the war seemed as far off as it does now".

After his wife's death in , Tolkien remembered, I never called Edith Luthien—but she was the source of the story that in time became the chief part of the Silmarillion.

It was first conceived in a small woodland glade filled with hemlocks [68] at Roos in Yorkshire where I was for a brief time in command of an outpost of the Humber Garrison in , and she was able to live with me for a while.

In those days her hair was raven, her skin clear, her eyes brighter than you have seen them, and she could sing—and dance. Gordon ; both became academic standard works for several decades. In mid, he began to privately tutor undergraduates, most importantly those of Lady Margaret Hall and St Hugh's College , given that the women's colleges were in great need of good teachers in their early years, and Tolkien as a married professor then still not common was considered suitable, as a bachelor don would not have been.

He also published a philological essay in on the name " Nodens ", following Sir Mortimer Wheeler 's unearthing of a Roman Asclepeion at Lydney Park , Gloucestershire, in It was finally edited by his son and published in , more than 40 years after Tolkien's death and almost 90 years since its completion.

Nicholson said that the article Tolkien wrote about Beowulf is "widely recognized as a turning point in Beowulfian criticism", noting that Tolkien established the primacy of the poetic nature of the work as opposed to its purely linguistic elements.

Satan and Melkor each fall because of their mutinous actions and contempt for their creators.

Understanding he turned to subtlety in perverting to his own will all that he would use, until he became a liar without shame. He began with the desire of Light, but when he could not possess it for himself alone, he descended through fire and wrath into a great burning, down into Darkness. This famous line has fascinated readers for centuries, for what sort of fire can emit darkness rather than light? Whatever sort of mysterious flame exists in Hell, it would appear that Melkor has encountered it as well.

Perhaps fires of darkness suit these post-fall demonic figures better than any other illumination; at any rate, both develop an intense hatred for the sun after their descents. Rather, Satan and Melkor, recalling their former seats and observing their current situations, allow their shame to fester and direct the resultant anger at the heavenly body most representative of their past. However much Satan may blame God for his circumstances in the poem, here at least Satan seems to recognize his own folly, blaming himself.

Likewise, Melkor too detests the Sun and Moon. Melkor hates the lights not nearly as much as he hates the fact that he can no longer partake in the creation and enjoyment of such things of beauty, and he resents his downfall and exile, just as Satan does his own.

Symbolically, if not literally, the final step in the descents of Satan and Melkor involves their corporeal beings. However, Melkor loses this ability in The Silmarillion and seemingly can never regain it.

The Silmarillion

Satan experiences a somewhat similar occurrence in Hell after he returns from tempting Eve in Eden. As Paradise Lost tells in a generous interpretation of Genesis, Satan adopts the body of a serpent—whether he simply transforms his own being or commandeers a living snake is debatable—in which he speaks to Eve of the Tree, convincing her to partake of its sinful Fruit. Returning to Hell where the other fallen angels have awaited, Satan proudly announces his deed.

Immediately, Satan realizes that he himself has been transformed into A monstrous Serpent on his Belly prone, Reluctant, but in vain: PL And thus, from this point Satan cannot fall much further. These actions seem pathetic for two creatures of such original high standing, but they fall so deeply that they cannot aspire to higher goals. Exactly how much impact does the Miltonic Satan have on the character and story of Melkor? Furthermore, considering the friendship Tolkien shared with Lewis, who wrote extensively on Paradise Lost, conversations between the two scholars may have made a significant impact on the writings of the former.

Yet, because Tolkien wrote little regarding Milton or his poetry, such analyses can be made only by exploring the numerous intertextualities between Paradise Lost and The Silmarillion. Complete Poems and Major Prose. The Odyssey Press, Lewis, C. A Preface to Paradise Lost. New York:
