Rezension bezieht sich auf: The Simarillion (Taschenbuch)
... and this says it all. This book has touched me as very few have, and I have come to consider the First Age of Middle Earth as part of my own past. I have read the Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, but the Silmarillion surpasses both in sheer beauty. This is more that fiction, it is poetry at its best. Coming from Hellas, a country with an ancient tradition of literature and especially epics & dramas, I don't hesitate to place Tolkien on the same pedestal with Homer of the Iliad & the Odyssey, or even (I know some will hate me for this) Euripides or Aeschylos. A unique literary experience. I suggest the Silmarillion to anyone who dares to dream of magic & love in today's drab world of advertising, "humanitary" wars & the stock exchange.
