The Tolkien Road

A podcast about Middle-earth and all things Tolkien.

0290 » Of the Sun and Moon and the Hiding of Valinor » The Silmarillion 2022 Ch 11

Chapter 11 gives us a moment to catch our breaths after the intense action of the last several chapters. It introduces a new epoch into the history of Middle-earth: the Years of the Sun and the Moon, and the barring of Valinor from the rest of the world.

In Chapter 11, we’ll:

– Catch up with the Valar
– Learn of the creation of the Sun and the Moon
– Consider Morgoth’s reaction to these new lights
– Learn how and why Valinor was hidden
– And much more!
