This book — the legendary nunciate of The Lord of the Rings — offers an integral mythological history of the skillfully fantasized world of Middle-earth. The harmonious and integrated code telling of an epic fight between good and evil consists of some separate works: Ainulindalë is the myth about the Creation of the world, about the origin of Evil and reason of Falling; Valaquenta is the picture of hierarchy of divine powers, delineation of their disposition and role in the Creation; Quenta Silmarillion is the history of the revolt of Fëanor and his family against the gods, banishment of the insurgents from Valinor and their returning to Middle-earth, as well as the hopeless, without regard to a sacrificial courage, war against the great Enemy over Silmarils — the perfect jewels made by Fëanor and stolen by Morgoth; Akallabêth tells of falling of the great island kingdom of Númenor at the end of the Second Age; and the tale Of the Rings of Power notices the majestic events of the Third Age, in the first place — the waging of the War of the Ring.
