    An earlier direction

    Just as the Book of Lost Tales volume 1, this is a continuation with earlier conceptualizations of the stories that would later comprise the first age of Middle Earth. Again we see the world being portrayed at once with greater magic and whimsy and also with a far darker and wider grip of the power of Melko (later Melkor and Morgoth) than in the more polished Silmarillion. Toward the end we get a glimpse of the far less completed chapters wherein Tolkien was working toward an altogether different concept for the purpose of these stories and we really get to see how these were conceived as a history for England, albeit never completed as such.
