About the Book

THE RETURN OF THE KING, which brings to a close the great epic of war and adventure begun in The Fellowship of the Ring and continued in The Two Towers, is the third and final part of J. R. R. Tolkien's masterpiece, "The Lord of the Rings."

In these three books, which form one continuous narrative, Tolkien created the saga of the Hobbits of Middle-earth and the great War of the Rings. Praised by such writers and poets as W. H. Auden, Richard Hughes and C. S. Lewis, "The Lord of the Rings" - that special world of beauty and terror and meaning - holds a secure place among the books that will live.

About the Edition

THE LORD OF THE RINGS is J.R.R. Tolkien's great three-volume epic set in the imaginary world of the Third-Age of Middle-earth - a world inhabited by many strange beings, including hobbits, an ancient people, smaller than dwarves, peace-loving and shy. Since its original publication, this work has caught the imagination of readers of all ages and walks of life. It is an adventure story, an adult fairy tale, a classic myth which Michael Straight has called one of the "very few works of genius in recent literature."
