Revolt Of The Losers

His theft of the Silmarils and wars against Elves and Men encompassed much of the history of the First Age.

Eventually, Morgoth was bound in chains by the Valar and thrown into the Void , leaving the permanent damage his evils had done, and his former lieutenant Sauron , to trouble the world.

One day, according to prophecy , Morgoth will rise again in great wrath, but he will be destroyed in the Dagor Dagorath.

When the Ainur made music , Melkor wove his strange thoughts into his song. But Eru smiled, and sent forth a new theme. Most of the Ainur joined with it, but Melkor rebelliously opposed it even more violently.

At last, many of the Ainur stopped singing in dismay, and Melkor's discords gained dominance. Eru sent out a third Theme against Melkor, sweeter and more beautiful than the others, and unquenchable.

But though Melkor could not defeat it, still he opposed it. At last, Eru halted the music completely with a single chord.

Melkor was shamed and angered by this judgement, but hid his feelings. Nonetheless, he was allowed to enter Eä and come to Arda with the other Valar.

Once there, Melkor declared to his colleagues that he was the master of Arda henceforth. Melkor departed to the remote regions of Eä, leaving the world in peace for a while.

But Melkor took form more majestic than any of the Valar, great and terrible and burning with his malice, and he came to Arda to destroy the Valar's work in preparing it.

There was war, the First War with Melkor , in which mountains were felled and brutality inflicted on the Valar.

Though he disrupted their work and destroyed much, a great spirit named Tulkas came to Arda from other regions of Eä to combat him.

After Tulkas drove Melkor away, the Valar managed to complete Arda, and the world was established. The Valar dwelt in a land called Almaren , and raised up two lamps to light the young earth: Illuin and Ormal.

Melkor, meanwhile, had attracted the attention--and in a few cases, admiration--of the Maiar , the lesser spirits of Arda. Melkor had many spies among them, and from them learned all that the Valar did, and bided his time.

As the Valar sat down to a feast at the completion of their labours, Melkor gathered together those loyal to him, and looking down on the beautiful Arda, was filled with hatred.

Tulkas was wedded to Nessa at that feast, and she danced before the Valar. Tulkas fell asleep, and that is when Melkor struck.

Melkor with his host passed over the Walls of Night and returned to Arda once more. Without the watchfulness of Tulkas, the Valar were unaware of his coming, and he began to delve in the depths of the earth, making a fortress called Utumno northwards beneath the mountains in the dimness of Illuin.

The Spring of Arda became blighted as the cold evil flowed out of the fortress. Death and illness took the green things of Arda, and animals fought and killed one another, while flies brooded in massive numbers.

The Valar knew then that Melkor was at work, and sought his hiding place. But Melkor struck the first blow. He came to them in ire and war, destroying Almaren and the Two Lamps, and caused the world to be filled with flowing fire and surging water.

The symmetry of Arda was broken. And in the darkness and confusion Melkor escaped, returning to Utumno. All combined, the Valar were a match for Melkor, but they needed their strength to keep the world from collapsing into ruin and could not pursue him, nor did they know exactly where he had fled to.

The Spring of Arda had ended in turmoil. With Almaren destroyed, the Valar departed to a new continent across the sea , Aman , and built Valinor.

They also established new sources of light, the Two Trees , to light the world. Melkor, meanwhile, wandered across the face of Middle-earth , in various guises, but armed with cold and fire.

Some of the Valar were unwilling to forsake Middle-earth, however; Ulmo and Yavanna , particularly. Melkor brooded in the north and built his strength, gathering his demons about him, breeding great monsters, attended by his Maiar-servants later known as Balrogs.

He also created another fortress and armory called Angband , in the north-west of Middle Earth, to resist any Valarin attacks.

He placed his greatest servant, Sauron , in control of that stronghold. The Valar acted against Melkor in force, but they were routed, his might too great for them to overcome.

After his victory, Melkor began to delve more great fortresses and pits where he massed his hordes and wicked armies, confident in his domination of the world.

He instilled fear in them, and slew or captured many of them. Some of those he captured, it is believed, may have been transformed into Orcs by torture and breeding.

The Valar were not long, however, in discovering the Elves. Bitter from their previous defeat, they arrived in Middle-earth with their full might.

They began the Battle of the Powers , and eventually destroyed Utumno after a great battle during which the face of Middle-earth was transformed, though their losses were devastating in the process.

Melkor was captured and chained with the chain Angainor , but Sauron escaped. Melkor was imprisoned in the halls of Mandos , and remained there for three ages, plotting revenge.

Still recovering from the grievous siege, the Valar could not pursue and destroy all of Melkor's forces that scattered from the icy fortress, and many foul creatures and minions escaped, left to brood amongst themselves until their master's return.

Yet the Valar would not let him leave their sight, and he stayed in Valmar. Before long, he began to exert his corrupting influence on the Elves, especially the Noldor.

For the Vanyar did not trust him, and the Teleri he thought too weak for his designs, but the Noldor were curious, and eager to learn what he could teach them.

They began to murmur against the Valar, and the peace of Valinor was disturbed. Tulkas left straight-away to deal with him, but found Melkor gone.

He had escaped. Melkor departed in anger, and went south past the mountain of Hyarmentir , to the shadowed valley of Avathar where there dwelt Ungoliant , a mysterious dark spirit in spider-form once his servant, but who had disowned him after his failure.

After some time he convinced her to dismiss her fears with the offer of rich rewards, and she wove a cloak of shadow about them both.

Then Melkor and Ungoliant attacked while there was festival in Valmar. Melkor pierced the Two Trees with his lance, and Ungoliant drank their sap.

Then she drank dry the Wells of Varda , and the two fled north to Formenos , leaving the land once more in darkness and confusion.

He was soon back in Angband. He had struck swiftly and surely. The spider had grown greatly in size and strength from feasting upon the Trees, and Morgoth, now very weak from his efforts, feared her suddenly.

Lacking the strength to fight the monstrous spider in that moment, he reluctantly parted with each of the beautiful gems, and Ungoliant devoured them.

But Morgoth refused to give up the Silmarils, and she encased him in webs, torturing him and nearly devouring him.

A loud cry of desperation from Morgoth penetrated deep into the walls of Angband and was heeded by Gothmog and the balrogs , and they rescued him from her clutches, driving Ungoliant away with their whips.

So Morgoth returned to Angband. Morgoth rebuilt the fortress there, and learned of the Elves who had remained in Middle-earth.

Caught between the two armies, the Orcs of Morgoth were utterly defeated in the First Battle. Fleeing north they were intercepted and further demolished by the Naugrim.

They set up at Mithrim , but Morgoth attacked them quickly, hoping to dislodge them before they settled in too much and became a threat.

But the Elves were just come out of Aman , and they had the light of that country in their eyes. The Orcs dreaded them, and were swept before them like chaff before wind.

Yet Fingolfin came next, with his sons and the sons of Finarfin. There, he pleaded for pardon, but was cast into the Halls of Mandos for three Ages.

However, in their haste to overthrow Melkor, the Valar left many of Utumno's pits and vaults unexplored, and Sauron remained at large.

Additionally, they did not capture or destroy the Balrogs, who gathered at the ruins of Angband and went into a long hibernation, awaiting Melkor's return.

At first, it seemed as though the evil of Melkor had been cured, for all who sought his counsel and aid in that time benefited greatly from it.

However, Tulkas and Ulmo were both very slow to forget Melkor's evils, and watched him closely. In truth, Melkor was more filled with malice than ever, and began to put his extraordinary cunning to use in devising a way to ruin Aman.

Seeing the bliss of the Elves and remembering that it was for their sake that he was overthrown, Melkor desired above all things to corrupt them.

Over a long period of time he spread lies concerning the intentions of the Valar in bringing the Elves to Aman, telling them, among other things, tales of the coming of Men, the existence of which the Valar had not revealed to the Elves.

But Melkor could not be found. Melkor then passed unseen to the south, and came upon Ungoliant. Promising to sate her unrelenting hunger, she and Melkor came back to Valinor, intending to destroy the Trees.

Then, during a time of festival, Melkor and Ungoliant suddenly attacked. Melkor thrust a great spear into the Trees and Ungoliant drank the sap that poured from the wounds, draining the Trees and poisoning them.

The Trees quickly withered and died, plunging Aman into complete darkness for a time. In the fear and confusion that followed, Melkor sped to Formenos and broke into the fortress.

The Silmarils burned Melkor's hand, causing him immeasurable agony, but he did not release them. He and Ungoliant fled to the North, and the Valar gave chase, but the Unlight of Ungoliant bewildered them and the two escaped.

In Lammoth , Melkor and Ungoliant approached the ruins of Angband, with Melkor hoping to escape and leave his promise to feed Ungoliant unfulfilled.

Ungoliant however, saw through his plan and stopped with him before they reached Angband. She demanded that he surrender the treasure of Formenos to sate her hunger as he had promised, and begrudgingly he gave her the lesser treasures he had taken, but he would not give her the Silmarils which lay hidden within his right hand.

With his refusal to surrender the Silmarils, Ungoliant attacked Melkor, weaving her dark webbing about him. His resulting cry of pain and anguish roused the Balrogs from their slumber in the darkest depths of Angband.

With a tempest of fire they came to his aid, and drove away Ungoliant, but Melkor recalled them, and thus Ungoliant escaped. He then began to rebuild Angband, and to gather his servants there.

The name Melkor was never spoken again by his enemies. As Morgoth finished rebuilding Angband, the slag and debris created by his vast tunnelings was plied into three huge volcanoes, collectively known as Thangorodrim.

He hastened then to rebuild his forces, breeding innumerable Orcs and other fell beasts. This action triggered the tragic War of the Great Jewels , in which the elves would be utterly defeated in the end.

Soon, he and his vanguard drew far ahead of the main host, and the orcs, seeing this, turned and gave battle at the gates of Angband. Maedhros agreed to the parley, but both sides, expecting treachery, came with greater force than was agreed.

Unfortunately for the Elves, Morgoth's force was the greater of the two, and was accompanied by Balrogs.

The Elven company was quickly slain with the exception of Maedhros, who was captured and chained by his right hand to one of Thangorodrim's many cliffs.

However, the Elves knew that Morgoth would not honor his word, and sent no reply. To his dismay however, the Valar revealed the creation of the Sun and the Moon , which confounded Morgoth and his servants for a time.

To counter these new lights, Morgoth sent up nigh-impenetrable clouds of smoke from the Iron Mountains to darken Hithlum. During the time of confusion and inaction among Morgoth's forces by these new lights, Fingon traveled to Angband, aided by the very darkness Morgoth had set upon Hithlum, and rescued Maedhros.

After this failure, Morgoth took to capturing what elves he could, breaking them with the power of his will and chaining their lives to his.

The burning of Ard-galen at the beginning of the battle, by Filat. One hundred years later, Morgoth sent an army into the north to approach Hithlum from the side, but an army under the command of Fingon destroyed them yet again.

Another century passed, and the issuing of the first dragon, Glaurung , demonstrated the results of Morgoth's long labor.

Glaurung's sudden appearance scattered the elves in the immediate vicinity of Angband, but a company of archers under Fingon's command engaged him before he could do much more than frighten the elves.

As Glaurung was barely half-grown, his hide was not yet invulnerable to the elven arrows and he fled the field. Morgoth was displeased with Glaurung for revealing himself before his creator had planned, but ultimately Glaurung's youthful foray was of little consequence.

Some time later, when men first arrived in Beleriand , it was revealed that Morgoth had left Angband and walked among the fathers of men.

Hoping to corrupt them to his service, he spread his lies among them, and found them to be considerably easier to sway than the elves had been.

However, the strengthening of the elven kingdoms worried Morgoth, and he returned to Angband before his labors were complete. Nevertheless, most Men believed or half-believed his lies and either departed from the North or joined with Morgoth's forces.

However, a small group of men that became known as the Edain resisted him. About years after Fingolfin came to Middle-earth, Morgoth deemed that the time was ripe to destroy the elves and their allies.

One cold winter night, when the elven watch was least vigilant, Morgoth sent forth terrible rivers of fire and lava from Thangorodrim and poisonous fumes from the Iron Mountains.

In the wake of these fires there came Glaurung, now fully grown, the Balrogs, and armies of orcs and other monsters in numbers such as the elves had never conceived of.

Thus began the Dagor Bragollach. The Siege of Angband was swiftly broken and the forces of the elves were scattered.

So swift and overwhelming was Morgoth's assault that the various elven kingdoms were unable to marshal their forces in any sort of unified front, and as such Morgoth was able to engage the elven forces in a piecemeal fashion, greatly blunting the effectiveness of any resistance.

Fingolfin and Fingon only just barely managed to defend Hithlum from Morgoth's onslaught, as the mountains surrounding it provided an effective barrier against Morgoth's fires.

The elves were completely driven from the forests of Dorthonion , and many of the grey elves forsook the war altogether and went to Doriath.

When news came to Fingolfin of the totality of the disasters that had befallen the elven forces, a great despair came upon him.

When he arrived, he smote upon the doors of Morgoth's fortress, challenging the Dark Lord to come forth to single combat.

Though Morgoth did not wish to, Fingolfin's challenge was heard by all in Angband, and was given in such an insulting manner that to ignore it would have been to lose face before his captains.

Morgoth issued forth in black armor from Angband to confront Fingolfin. Wielding the terrible hammer Grond , Morgoth repeatedly attempted to smite the elven king, but succeeded only in carving many fiery pits in the ground from his missed strikes.

Fingolfin long managed to avoid Morgoth's blows, and wounded the Dark Lord seven times. But at last, Fingolfin grew weary, and Morgoth thrice drove him to his knees.

Fingolfin arose each time to continue the fight, but eventually he fell backwards into one of the many pits formed by Morgoth's missed attacks.

Morgoth then set his foot upon Fingolfin's neck and killed him, but not before Fingolfin, with his last stroke, hewed Morgoth's foot with his sword.

Then Morgoth broke the elf's body and prepared to feed it to his wolves. But Thorondor , the King of the Eagles , swooped down upon Morgoth, marring his face with his talons, and rescued the body of the elf-king.

Fingolfin's last stroke gave Morgoth a permanent limp, and the pain of his seven wounds could not be healed, nor were the scars ever erased.

Morgoth and Fingolfin, by Ted Nasmith. However, despite his great victory, Morgoth had made a critical mistake.

So great had been his malice and his desire to destroy the elves that he had struck before his plans were fully realized, and in his hatred and contempt he had underestimated the resolve and valor of his foes.

Now Morgoth found that the elves and Edain, recovering from the initial shock of his onslaught, had begun to make small gains against his outlying forces.

He therefore checked his advance, and withdrew the main host of the orcs to Angband. For though he knew that his victory had been relatively decisive, his own losses had been as numerous as the losses that had been accrued by the elves.

Afterwards, Morgoth sent out many spies, and he sent messengers to men, feigning pity. When the Edain refused his false offers of peace, he summoned the Easterlings over the Blue Mountains to harass them militarily.

Seven years passed before Morgoth renewed his offensive. Morgoth was able to see through her disguise, but she was undaunted by his eyes, and offered to sing for him.

As she sang, Morgoth conceived a lust and an evil more abominable than any he had yet committed, and allowed her to continue singing.

But as he delighted in his thought, suddenly shadow hid her, and she sang a song of great and terrible power that cast a spell of sleep.

All Morgoth's court was cast down in slumber by her song, but the Silmarils burned, and became so heavy that the head of Morgoth sagged upon his chest.

He fell from his throne, the Iron Crown rolled away from him, and Beren cut a Silmaril from it. However, rather than leaving immediately with his prize, he tried to take another of the Silmarils.

As he attempted to pry the second jewel loose, his knife snapped. One shard struck Morgoth's face, and he began to awaken.

However, at the gates of Angband the werewolf Carcharoth was aware of them, and later bit off Beren's hand, and took with it the Silmaril.

Burning from the inside at the touch of the holy jewel, Carcharoth went mad and fled in wrath from Angband, slaughtering all who stood in his path.

Then Morgoth awoke, and in a rage he and his court roared up in pursuit, only to see Thorondor carrying off the raiders.

Morgoth's rage at the loss of the Silmaril caused the Iron Mountains to begin erupting, terrifying all those who could see it.

Ultimately however, he was unable to recover the gem. Soon after, Morgoth became aware that Maedhros was making a great league against him, and driving his orcs off the northern heights.

As such, he took council against them and prepared his forces for a major confrontation. When the elves eventually made it to Angband, the Battle of Nirnaeth Arnoediad began.

Ultimately, the battle was a complete and decisive victory for Morgoth. The power of the elves and their Edain compatriots to make war against Morgoth was utterly and permanently broken.

He sought to extract the information from him but, despite inflicting terrible torment upon his captive, he was unsuccessful.

By this means he drove them at last to madness and despair; though there is doubt as to whether in the extremity of his malice he cheated himself, as their madness saved them from damnation.

The Shadow of my thought shall lie upon them wherever they go, and my hate shall pursue them to the ends of the world.

But all whom you love my thought shall weigh as a cloud of Doom, and it shall bring them down into darkness and despair.

Wherever they go, evil shall arise. Wherever they speak, their words shall bring ill counsel. Whatsoever they do shall turn against them.

They shall die without hope, cursing both life and death.

After some time he convinced her to dismiss her fears with the offer of rich rewards, and she wove a cloak of shadow about them both.

Then Melkor and Ungoliant attacked while there was festival in Valmar. Melkor pierced the Two Trees with his lance, and Ungoliant drank their sap.

Then she drank dry the Wells of Varda , and the two fled north to Formenos , leaving the land once more in darkness and confusion.

He was soon back in Angband. He had struck swiftly and surely. The spider had grown greatly in size and strength from feasting upon the Trees, and Morgoth, now very weak from his efforts, feared her suddenly.

Lacking the strength to fight the monstrous spider in that moment, he reluctantly parted with each of the beautiful gems, and Ungoliant devoured them.

But Morgoth refused to give up the Silmarils, and she encased him in webs, torturing him and nearly devouring him. A loud cry of desperation from Morgoth penetrated deep into the walls of Angband and was heeded by Gothmog and the balrogs , and they rescued him from her clutches, driving Ungoliant away with their whips.

So Morgoth returned to Angband. Morgoth rebuilt the fortress there, and learned of the Elves who had remained in Middle-earth.

Caught between the two armies, the Orcs of Morgoth were utterly defeated in the First Battle. Fleeing north they were intercepted and further demolished by the Naugrim.

They set up at Mithrim , but Morgoth attacked them quickly, hoping to dislodge them before they settled in too much and became a threat.

But the Elves were just come out of Aman , and they had the light of that country in their eyes. The Orcs dreaded them, and were swept before them like chaff before wind.

Yet Fingolfin came next, with his sons and the sons of Finarfin. They marched even to the gates of Angband, and yet could not go farther.

As the Elves began to build or rebuild their kingdoms in Middle-earth, Morgoth waited sixty years before he struck again.

It was the Dagor Aglareb , the "Glorious Battle", called such because it was a great victory for the Elves. They then set up the Siege of Angband , which was designed to keep Morgoth holed up in his fortress.

Morgoth appeared all but defeated to his foes; he remained dormant and hidden until F. He surged forth suddenly in great wrath, his armies taking the slackened besiegers by surprise.

In the winter he cast great rivers of flame over the formerly green Ard-galen causing the battle to be known as the Dagor Bragollach , burning many Elven horsemen alive.

His forces beset strongholds on all sides, led by Glaurung and Gothmog, and several Noldor-lords fell in the succeeding combat.

In a single stroke Morgoth had broken the Siege of Angband, but the victory was not as complete as he would have preferred. Ered Wethrin , Himring and Hithlum had held against him, though just barely.

King Fingolfin was dismayed and enraged by the defeat, and went to Angband in anger. With fire in his eyes, Morgoth's Orcs mistook him for a vengeful spirit and fled from him.

There he challenged Morgoth to single combat. Despite Morgoth's power, he held a fear of death greater than any other Valar, and was hesitant even against Fingolfin.

When Fingolfin declared Morgoth craven, he scoffed the Elf-Lord and did not dare refuse his challenge. He strode out, his footsteps like thunder on the earth.

He was clad in black armour with a spiked crown and shield, with Grond , the Hammer of the Underworld, and he and Fingolfin fought in a ferocious duel.

Flames gashed from the earth with each strike of his hammer, but Fingolfin was faster and avoided each powerful, but slow, swing.

The Elf-lord gave Morgoth seven wounds, and though Morgoth shouted in anguish, he was too powerful to be slain. Fingolfin grew weary and was struck down by Morgoth's shield.

Thrice he staggered to his feet in vain, his crown and shield broken, and thrice Morgoth cast him down, before Fingolfin collapsed over one of the pits left by Grond.

As Morgoth placed his foot on Fingolfin's neck to break it, Fingolfin in one last strike ran his blade through the Dark Lord's foot, and Morgoth's blood filled pools made by his hammer.

The enraged Morgoth crushed Fingolfin, though he was left with a permanent limp from the injury. Morgoth wished to rend the corpse and feed it to his wolves, but could not desecrate the fallen King, for Thorondor flew in, scratching Morgoth's face and escaping with Fingolfin's body.

For some time after that the world lay in watchful discomfort. The southern part of Beleriand was, for the most part, free from Morgoth's direct wrath.

These two lovers embarked on the Quest for the Silmaril , in the process removing Sauron from Tol-in-Gaurhoth and entering Angband in disguise.

One of the Silmarils was stolen from his crown, and Morgoth bore only two until the War of Wrath. Some time after, in F.

They marched to challenge Morgoth, clearing Beleriand of his scattered forces. But Morgoth through his spies anticipated their actions, and met them with his allies the Easterlings in a huge battle in which he prevailed, and many princes and rulers of Men, Elves, and Dwarves fell.

Morgoth's victory was almost complete, as he razed Hithlum , the Falas , the March of Maedhros , as well as Nargothrond in But Turgon , King of Gondolin , escaped by the valiant actions of the House of Hador , the last of the Edain in the north.

However, the Elves knew that Morgoth would not honor his word, and sent no reply. To his dismay however, the Valar revealed the creation of the Sun and the Moon , which confounded Morgoth and his servants for a time.

To counter these new lights, Morgoth sent up nigh-impenetrable clouds of smoke from the Iron Mountains to darken Hithlum. During the time of confusion and inaction among Morgoth's forces by these new lights, Fingon traveled to Angband, aided by the very darkness Morgoth had set upon Hithlum, and rescued Maedhros.

As such, he took council against them and prepared his forces for a major confrontation. When the elves eventually made it to Angband, the Battle of Nirnaeth Arnoediad began.

Ultimately, the battle was a complete and decisive victory for Morgoth. The power of the elves and their Edain compatriots to make war against Morgoth was utterly and permanently broken.

He sought to extract the information from him but, despite inflicting terrible torment upon his captive, he was unsuccessful.

By this means he drove them at last to madness and despair; though there is doubt as to whether in the extremity of his malice he cheated himself, as their madness saved them from damnation.

The Shadow of my thought shall lie upon them wherever they go, and my hate shall pursue them to the ends of the world.

But all whom you love my thought shall weigh as a cloud of Doom, and it shall bring them down into darkness and despair. Wherever they go, evil shall arise.

Wherever they speak, their words shall bring ill counsel. He also wielded a black spear, and in early texts, a poison sword.

Melkor's powers were originally immense, greater than those of any other single Ainu. He shared a part of the powers of every other Vala, but unlike them used it for domination of the whole of Arda.

To accomplish this Morgoth dispersed his being throughout Arda, tainting its very fabric, and only Aman was free of it. His person thus became ever more diminished and restricted.

Pity was beyond Morgoth's understanding, as was courage. As he alone of the Valar bound himself to a physical and therefore vulnerable body, he alone of the Valar knew fear.

Because Morgoth was the most powerful being in Arda, many "flocked to his banner". Ungoliant , a demon in spider form, helped Melkor destroy the Two Trees.

This alliance was temporary, however; when Melkor refused to yield the Silmarils to Ungoliant, she attacked him.

He had spread his power and malice too thin, and had weakened himself too much to fight back; he escaped only through the arrival of the Balrogs.

When the race of Men awoke, Morgoth or his servant, depending on the text consulted temporarily left Angband to live among them.

Morgoth was known to betray his own servants. After the Noldor were defeated, he confined all Men in his service to the lands of Hithlum , their only prize the pillage of that land, though they had fought to win richer lands in Beleriand.

He developed from a standout among equals into a being so powerful that the other created beings could not utterly defeat him.

Over time, Tolkien altered both the conception of this fallen Ainu and his name. He was for a long time also called Melko.

Tolkien vacillated over the Sindarin equivalent of this, which appeared as Belcha , Melegor , and Moeleg. The meaning of the name also varied, related in different times to milka "greedy" or velka "flame".

Much of the text published in The Silmarillion was drawn from earlier, more completely written, drafts of the mythology—and thus reflects the older conception of Morgoth's power; there is less discussion of his marring all of Arda by diluting himself throughout it.

While not included in the published Silmarillion , other versions of the mythology hold that Melkor will escape the guardianship of Eärendil and return at the end of time.

In late writings a distinction is made between the Ainu Melkor , the most powerful of Eru's created beings, and Morgoth , the diminished being that styled itself Dark Lord of Arda.

This distinction is not limited to the change in name "Arises in Might" to "Dark Enemy". Melkor's thematic variations in that Music amounted to his own self-elaboration.

Each Ainu arose from a divine theme, existing beforehand only in the mind of Eru. Eä, or the World that Is, is shaped after the Music.

Thus, the evil that Melkor weaves into the Music was mirrored in Eä by the evil he wove into the fabric of reality. As a result, the world Arda was "Marred": the conceptions of the Valar never came about, and Melkor's very essence was present in all creation.

Melkor's inability to perform true creation is tied to the idea that something of his actual being must pass into the things he "created", in order to give them an effective substance and reality.

Melkor could not create anything, as he did not possess the Flame Imperishable ; thus he could only create a mockery of those things in Arda.

From his Trolls to the Sun which was made from a fruit from a Tree poisoned by Ungoliant, and was thus itself imperfect , Melkor's power and essence was poured into Arda.

Melkor's individual self was diminished as a consequence. Morgoth's spirit was cast out beyond the Walls of Night, yet his presence remains as the pervasive corruption of the world, "even until the End of Days".

Melkor has been interpreted as being analogous to Satan. Like Lucifer , he rebels against his creator. His greed for ever more power and his fondness for technology make him a symbol for the despotism of modern machinery.

On the other hand, it has been observed that Melkor's rebellion against Eru is creative in itself, as Melkor is impatient for the void of the world to be filled with things.

But his creativity becomes destructive because it had always been tainted with pride. John R. Holmes, writing in the J.
