After Morgoth had defeated and devastated the Elven realms of Nargothrond and Doriath, the last Elven stronghold of Middle-earth was the enchanted city of Gondolin, built in the heart of the mountains by the Elves. Will they be able to withstand the onslaught of evil forces? And how to help the folk, if they are convinced of the inaccessibility of their city and completely disconnected from the outside world? J. R. R. Tolkien (1892–1973), the world-famous author of the literary masterpieces The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, repeatedly returned to the tale of The Fall of Gondolin and counted it among the three ‘Great Tales’ of the Elder Days, along with Beren and Lúthien and Children of Húrin, but never put any version of it into print. This book was the last to be edited and commented on by Christopher Tolkien (1924–2020), the writer’s youngest son who dedicated his life to publishing his father’s posthumous literary legacy.
