Beren and Lúthien

Beren and Lúthien by J.R.R. Tolkien and Christopher Tolkien

For people who want to understand what happened to the tale in its various revisions before it reached the form that Christopher Tolkien put in the Silmarillion and which gets alluded in The Lord of the Rings.

I find it interesting to watch his concept of Middle-Earth shift with world-building.
