Mehr über den Autor

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien wurde 1892 in Südafrika als Sohn eines Bankangestellten geboren. Nach dem Tod des Vaters zog die Familie 1896 zurück in die englischen West Midlands, wo die Mutter nur wenige Jahre später ihrer Zuckerkrankheit erlag. Bevor Tolkien dann als Leutnant in den Ersten Weltkrieg zog, heiratete er 1916 Edith Bratt, mit der er später drei Söhne und eine Tochter haben sollte. Nach Kriegsende setzte Tolkien seine akademische Laufbahn fort und wurde 1925 Professor für Englische Philologie in Oxford. Aus der für seine Kinder verfassten Geschichte "Der kleine Hobbit" wurde ein Bestseller (1937). Auch die Trilogie "Der Herr der Ringe" (1954-1955) erfreut sich ungebrochener Beliebtheit. Tolkien gilt als Begründer des Fantasygenres. Er verstarb 1973.

Produktbeschreibungen

Synopsis

For generations, J R R Tolkien's words have brought to thrilling life a world of hobbits, magic, and historic myth, woken from its foggy slumber within our minds. Here, he tells the tales in his own voice. Of historic note, these selections from 'The Hobbit' and 'The Lord of the Rings' are based on a tape recording Tolkien made in 1952, which inspired him to continue his own quest to see his vision in print. Also included is a never-published poem, "The Mirror of Galadriel," originally intended for inclusion in the trilogy, yet edited out. And, finally, Tolkien's son, Christopher, reads slections from his father's 'The Silmarillion', the epic foundation upon which rests the whole of his work. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Audio CD .

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien (1892-1973) was a major scholar of the English language, specializing in Old and Middle English. Twice Professor of Anglo-Saxon (Old English) at the University of Oxford, he also wrote a number of stories, including most famously The Hobbit (1937) and The Lord of the Rings (1954-1955), which are set in a pre-historic era in an invented version of the world which he called by the Middle English name of Middle-earth.

Nicht ganz wie erwartet, aber der Meister ist eben kein Schauspieler. Trotzdem beeindruckend und empfehlenswert. Denn man fragt sich: wie spricht er die Namen aus...

Format: Hörkassette
If you want to give this as a present to a Tolkien fan then this is it, a collection of Tolkiens best books, (well, they are in my opinion they are) including the great joint work "The road goes ever on" with Donald Swann and J.R.R. Tolkien, but if you buy them for yourself and you have never read Tolkien books before beware, you will probably not be able to understand it. But as a gift it is great, myself a avid tolkien fan who has a large collection of Tolkien books will certainly look forward to adding this to my collection. 9 out of 10

Tolkien has fun with Tolkien 24. April 2002
Von Zack Davisson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
According to the inserts, these recordings were made before the "Lord of the Rings" books were even published. J.R.R. Tolkien performed these snippets for friends, in order to get their opinion of his new story as well as inspire himself to pursue publication. It is pretty fortunate that they were recorded.
Of course, the recording quality of these informal chats is not top-notch, but I would expect nothing different. These are not professional recordings, but probably just someone with a recording machine in a living room while Tolkien performs. They are intimate, and a wonder to hear. Imagine if you could have been there, with Professor Tolkien trying to interest you in his funny little stories!
Tolkien reads excerpts from several of his books, including "The Hobbit" and "The Lord of the Rings." He reads "The Adventures of Tom Bombadil," and sings a few of his songs. It is great fun to hear the "gollum" noise as he envisioned it, as well as the Elvish language spoken by it's author.
I highly recommend these recordings. They are a window into the past.

J. R. R. Tolkien is a great reader of his own work. 30. September 2002
Von E. Palladino - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's too bad that Tolkien didn't get a chance to read the whole of "Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit". But, it's wonderful that these recordings survived for us to hear them since they were not professionally made and most were done before "Lord of the Rings" was even published, let alone popular. Also, also my thanks to who ever decided to put all these on CD. My LPs of these recordings are worn out.

The Tolkien Audio Collection [abridged] a most marvlous expe 26. Januar 2003
Von R. Foret Jr. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
Ever wanted to actually HEAR the voice of the author of "The Lord of the Rings" books reading some of his own wanderfull work? Well, whith this collection, you CAN!!! Yes, it's true, Tolkien reading his own writing!!! Among the many treasures contained in this fabulous four disk collection is a sample of Tolkien reading the two lines of writing on the ring, "one ring to rule them all..." No, he doesn't read it in the black speech, but I'd like to think that he DID record that. there's a pretty good sprinkling of Elvish here too: both spoken and sung. You will just love the first item in this collection. Here, Tolkien reads the passage about Gollum from "the Hobbit". It should be noted that He reads at a fairly fast rate so you may have to listen somewhat more closely than you might otherwise. This one will just keep you coming back again and again and again!!!!! You'll NEVER tire of it.

This CD collection is a treasure for any fan of J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" fantasy universe. The Father of Modern Fantasy himself reads and sings poems, passages, and songs from "The Hobbit", "The Lord of the Rings", and "The Adventures of Tom Bombadil". Additionally, J.R.R.'s son, Christopher Tolkien, reads long excerpts from "The Silmarillion", the hefty mythology behind Middle-Earth.

J.R.R. Tolkien's recordings were made in 1952, two years before "The Fellowship of the Ring" was published. His readings and songs are insight into what he saw out of his own writing. You can feel his enthusiasm when he's singing and laughing to merry rhymes, or his grief when he sings Galadriel's lament. He passionately acts out the parts from "Riddles in the Dark" and "Of Herbs and Stewed Rabbit", making different voices for each character. He fluidly pronounces the Quenya lyrics as they are meant to be sung/spoken. Listening to these tracks gives you the opportunity to glimpse the Middle Earth Tolkien saw.

Regarding the "never-published poem 'The Mirror of Galadriel'", it isn't actually unpublished. They're referring to CD 1 Track 17 ("Frodo's Lament for Gandalf"), which IS a poem Frodo reads in "Fellowship of the Ring" (Book II, Chapter VII). From a review on an audio cassette collection...

>>> "The second to last poem is, according to the blurb that came with the tape, an unpublished poem that was apparently intended for inclusion in The Fellowship of the Ring. I am confused by this, because the penultimate recording is simply Sam's poetic tribute to Gandalf from 'The Mirror of Galadriel'. Until now I had never found this a particularly moving or significant poem. However, Tolkien gives the words a simple gravity that perfectly matches the (supposed) passing of Gandalf the Grey."
>>> - From Martin Baker's review of "JRR Tolkien Reads Excerpts from The Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Ring" on Tolkien Society

...it appears that this "never-published poem" is really just a 30-something-year-old error that was never corrected.

Several reviewers have complained about the sound quality. These tracks are actually better than you realize. I first heard many of these readings on Harper Collins's audio cassette collection, and it's quite clear the tracks have been remastered since. I hear little of the static, popping, and clipping from the cassette versions, and the volume levels are more balanced. Happily, you can still hear some of the charming background noises like creaking chairs, shuffling papers, and cars driving up the road. When I hear those environmental noises, I feel like I'm in the room with Tolkien, listening to him sing in person.

In CDs 3 and 4, Christopher Tolkien's reads from "The Silmarillion", the book he assembled and published after his father died. "The Silmarillion" in its entirety isn't for everyone, since it's a pretty dry read. But the tale of Beren and Luthien on the third CD should be interesting even to casual fans, as it's the inspiration for the Aragorn/Awren romance that's explored in the movies, and the storytelling is reminiscent of Greek epics. The quality on Christopher Tolkien's reading are much clearer than his father's recordings, and sound much like a professional audiobook.

If you're looking at this product because you used to have the Harper/Caedmon audio cassette collection, you can buy this knowing it will contain all those recordings plus a few extras. I used to own the 4-cassette collection that included all the content from CDs 1, 2, and 3, and all the recordings are familiar. The only difference I've found so far is the additional readings in CD 4 and that the 1952 recordings are cleaner and more balanced. (In a few days I'll properly compare the cassettes and CDs and update the review if there are any missing tracks on the CDs.)

All-in-all this is an invaluable addition to any fan's collection. If you're a Tolkien fan yourself or if you're shopping for a Tolkien fan, you can't go wrong with this. I've been listening to these tracks for over a decade, and find joy in them every time.

Bringing Tolkien's Words to Life 9. Mai 2007
Von Franz Metcalf - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verifizierter Kauf
Who better to read Tolkien than Tolkien?

What I find so delightful in this compilation is the variety of mood and tone that both J. R. R. and Christopher bring to Tolkien's work. J. R. R. has real fun with the poems and narratives (especially of Sam and Gollum). The riddle chapter from The Hobbitt is an absolute treasure. J. R. R.'s vocal characterization of Gollum is genuinely first rate; no actor could have done it better. And his reading of the charge of the Rohirrim to the aid of Gondor is fully heroic.

But J. R. R. is always rustic whereas Christopher is erudite. The contrast is remarkable and somehow effective. Christopher's reading from The Silmarillion gives a sense of the depth of history of the Elder Days. His Oxbridge accent (after all, he grew up in Oxford) is perfect for the great persons he gives voice to. And of course he knows his father's work better than any person alive.

If you've ever enjoyed *reading* Tolkien, you owe it to yourself to *hear* Tolkien. You will love it! (And your kids will love Gollum!)
