As the great John Garth notes in his blog (among several other places), 100 years ago today J.R.R. Tolkien wrote the very first piece of what became his great legendarium, a poem called ‘The Voyage of Éarendel the Evening Star’.

Middle-earth Turns 100

100 years of Middle-earth

I particularly look forward to John's extended piece in Tolkien Studies 11. But in the meanwhile.

:birthday: to Tolkien's legendarium.

That's because it's roots run deep. Very deep.
