I have been irritating with some writings about The Lord of the Rings and history of Middle Earth because of their misunderstanding to his purer world and mixing it with modernism Perspective.

It might take my 2013 and 2014 but I aim to finish reading them all...

So I am making a list for the project :

1. The Lord of the Rings (trilogy).
2. The Silmarillion.
3. The Children of Húrin.
4. The Hobbit.
5. The Unfinished tales.
6. The History of Middle earth (12 books).
7. Roverandom .
8. Tales from the Perilous Realm.
9. The Legend of Sigurd & Gudrún. (I wonder if it is related to middle earth or the lord of the rings?)
10.The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien.

So, what else should I add to this long list???

Good luck, Alatáriël, it looks like quite a project. :wave: I started reading The Silmarillion, The Children of Húrin, and The Unfinished Tales, but unfortunately never got around to finishing them.

As for The Legend of Sigurd & Gudrún, I believe that it is an epic related to Norse mythology. Tolkien was a professor, and he specialized in those areas of study.

I suppose to be in page 100 of The Children of Húrin by tonight.

I know he was a professor of mythology and I suppose his version of myth is always the perfect one.

As for the project; I started it to know better about who relate sexuality to Tolkien's works. The man had a Victorian and purer view of relations but the modernism don't agree :/ .

Roverandom, The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun and Tales from the Perilous Realm aren't related to LotR. I don't think all of the Letters are either, but I haven't read those so I don't know.
