The Tolkien Road

A podcast about Middle-earth and all things Tolkien.

0280 » Of The Coming Of The Elves & The Captivity Of Melkor » The Silmarillion Chapter 3

Having taken a scenic detour in Chapter 2, in Chapter 3 we pick up where Chapter 1 left off. Though the Blessed Realm of Aman is now lit by the Two Trees of Valinor, the rest of Middle-earth lay in “twilight under the stars”. While the Valar and their people dwell in relative security, Melkor labors ceaselessly to dominate the rest of the world, even as the dawn of the Children of Ilúvatar draws nigh.
