This study aims at presenting the intercultural aspect of J.R.R. Tolkien's The Silmarillion and The Lord of the Rings, which are defined as an attempt to create a mythology for and/or of Britain. The Elves, as the main focus of this paper display how Tolkien re-writes Germanic mythology while creating Middle-earth.
