''The Lord of the Rings'' by Creator/JRRTolkien is too well-known, and too complex, to be [[Synopsis/TheLordOfTheRings summarised in full]]. Succinctly, it is by far the most recent addition to the {{canon}} of Western epic literature and is the epic which set the stage for the entire HighFantasy genre that followed in its wake. Interestingly, the story was originally intended as a ''shorter'' sequel to ''Literature/TheHobbit'', but as its author famously remarked, "the tale grew in the telling." ''Literature/TheSilmarillion'', posthumously published, serves as a prequel to this, though its material was first written of all.

With those words, [[BigBad Sauron]] forged the [[ArtifactOfDoom One Ring]], the [[SoulJar vessel of his power]] and the pivot on which the fate of Middle-Earth would turn for five thousand years -- until the [[{{Hobbits}} most unlikely of heroes]] did the one thing Sauron [[EvilCannotComprehendGood could never have imagined]], and brought his [[EvilTowerOfOminousness dark tower]] [[CollapsingLair tumbling down]].
