He once referred to dwarves as "a piece of private bad grammar" Letters17but in Appendix F to The Lord of the Rings he explains that if we still spoke of dwarves regularly, English might have retained a special plural for the word dwarf as with man.
Europeso naturally it feels familiar, even if a little glorified by enchantment of distance in time. There were often wars between dwarves and elves, but within the history of Middle Earth there were also alliances between them towards the end of defeating the forces of evil and darkness.
The First Age[ edit ] Main article: I got a lot of really weird looks. To the east was the region of Mordorencircled on three sides by mountains.
