Immortality in Tolkien's work is the concept of living for an infinite length of time, unless suffering a violent death.

Only beings such as the Ainur (including Wizards) and Elves are immortal. Men, Dwarves, Hobbits and most other races cannot live forever and thus are subject to aging and natural death.

In the latter half of the Second Age, Sauron's corruption of the Numenorian King Ar-Pharazôn made him believe that if he could invade and conquer the Blessed Land he could become immortal, resulting in the destruction of Numenor and Ar-Pharazôn's imprisonment.
