The Cottage of Lost Play, also known as Mar Vanwa Tyaliéva, was a small house on a hill on Tol Eressëa, at which many of the tales comprising the first two volumes of The History of Middle-earth were told by certain characters.

HistoryEdit

The Cottage of Lost Play was built by Lindo and his wife Vairë who lived there. It had many small curtained windows and a comforting interior, and was a place of merriment and joy where many people, especially children, came to visit. Eriol the mariner (known also as Ælfwine) visited the Cottage and learned much of ancient times.[1][2]

Tales toldEdit

During and after Eriol's time residing here, the tales narrated by both young children and older story-tellers at the Cottage of Lost Play were the narratives of the Coming of the Valar to Valinor, the chaining of Melko (Melkor), the coming of the Elves, the "Travail of the Noldoli", the Coming of Mankind, the flight of the Noldoli (Noldor), the hiding of Valinor, and the theft of Melko and the Darkening of Valinor, the Tale of the Sun and Moon, the Tale of Tinúviel, the earliest tale of the Fall of Gondolin, the tale of Turambar and the Foalókë, and the tale of the Nauglafring (the Necklace of the Dwarves).

Notes Edit

  • Tolkien may have based this location on the concept of time as time records every single action and is never forgotten, and the Cottages record the history of Middle-earth.
  • There was also a poem based around the Cottage of Lost Play, entitled You & Me and the Cottage of Lost Play and The Little House of Lost Play.[1]
