Overview


Un gran clásico moderno y el preludio a las vastas y poderosas mitologías de El Señor de Los Anillos.
Cuando alrededor de 1930, J.R.R. Tolkien comenzó a escribir El Hobbit, hacía ya diez años que trabajaba en el vasto panorama mitológico de El Libro de los Relatos, que más tarde se llamaría El Silmarillion. Así como esas crónicas tempranas narraban los mitos inmemoriales de la Primera y Segunda Edad, Tolkien pronto advirtió que El Hobbit iba ordenándose de algún modo como un relato de la Tercera Edad (Gandalf habla del Nigromante en las primeras páginas), aunque las inesperadas aventuras de un pacífico "hombre del campo" no parecieran tener mucha relación con las vastas y oscuras mitologías de la Tierra Media. El estilo directo y lineal, con alusiones (que el autor deploró más tarde) a un público infantil, no impide la poderosa irrupción --unas pocas veces en términos de comedia-- de los grandes temas tolkienianos (el poder, la codicia, la guerra, la muerte) que reaparecerían en una dimensión a menudo obviamente épica en El Señor de los Anillos.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

This Spanish language edition of J.R.R. Tolkien's immortal novel The Hobbit would be welcome even without the debut of the first of Peter Jackson's three Hobbit films. A thrilling reading experience for all ages.

Hijo de padres ingleses, vivió en Sudáfrica hasta la muerte de su padre en 1896, año en que se trasladó con su familia a Inglaterra. La conversión de la madre al catolicismo lo marcó profundamente. Estudió en Oxford, y mostró muy pronto un vivo interés por la filología y las antiguas sagas y leyendas nórdicas. Tras participar en la Primera Guerra Mundial, enseñó primero lengua inglesa en la Universidad de Leeds. Profesor de lengua y literatura anglosajona en la Universidad de Oxford, se especializó en la época medieval.

Biography

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born on the 3rd January, 1892 at Bloemfontein in the Orange Free State, but at the age of four he and his brother were taken back to England by their mother. After his father's death the family moved to Sarehole, on the south-eastern edge of Birmingham. Tolkien spent a happy childhood in the countryside and his sensibility to the rural landscape can clearly be seen in his writing and his pictures.

His mother died when he was only twelve and both he and his brother were made wards of the local priest and sent to King Edward's School, Birmingham, where Tolkien shine in his classical work. After completing a First in English Language and Literature at Oxford, Tolkien married Edith Bratt. He was also commissioned in the Lancashire Fusiliers and fought in the battle of the Somme. After the war, he obtained a post on the New English Dictionary and began to write the mythological and legendary cycle which he originally called "The Book of Lost Tales" but which eventually became known as The Silmarillion.

In 1920 Tolkien was appointed Reader in English Language at the University of Leeds which was the beginning of a distinguished academic career culminating with his election as Rawlinson and Bosworth Professor of Anglo-Saxon at Oxford. Meanwhile Tolkien wrote for his children and told them the story of The Hobbit. It was his publisher, Stanley Unwin, who asked for a sequel to The Hobbit and gradually Tolkien wrote The Lord of the Rings, a huge story that took twelve years to complete and which was not published until Tolkien was approaching retirement. After retirement Tolkien and his wife lived near Oxford, but then moved to Bournemouth. Tolkien returned to Oxford after his wife's death in 1971. He died on 2 September 1973 leaving The Silmarillion to be edited for publication by his son, Christopher.

    This is a great and exiting book. You don't know whats on the next page. However, any of you who like adventures, then The Hobbot is the best book for you.

    There is an english version on the NOOK and its great. Jusr type The Hobbit and look to see if there is a lend LEND ME thing on the book cover. Then look at the reveiws and see if there is any spanish comments and that should set you up for the english version of The Hobbit. If you find it I hope you enjoy it. Like I said before The Hobbit is a very good book.

    Awesome

    I have seen the movie the hobbit and the lord of the rings movies, i think that they are great movies and i can not wait to read the books. I have read the first 25pages and i am already hooked on. This book may be a little confusing for the younger ages.
