Men (English Men) - in the legend of JRR Tolkien, one of the races of Middle-earth, fighting on the side of both forces - the Age of Iluvatar and the Enemy. They were called the Younger Children of Iluvatar, who came to Middle-earth in the times of the Sun and the Moon. Unlike the immortal elves, humans were mortal. Death was a gift of the Era, which people later called a curse. The elves called people Atanas, the Other People. They were also called Guilders, Followers, and many other names: Apanonars, Mortals, Minors, Engvars, Sick and Firimars, as well as Invaders, Aliens, Incomprehensible, Cursed, Despotic, Night-Fearful, Children of the Night. At that time, elves and humans were about the same height and had the same physical strength, but elves were wiser, more skillful, and more beautiful; those of them who once lived in Valinor and saw the Forces were as superior to the Dark Elves in all of the above as they were, in turn, superior to the mortal people. People were weaker than elves, more likely to die from weapons or in unfortunate adventures, they were harder to heal; people were prone to disease and infirmity; they grew old and died. Where their souls go after death is unknown to anyone but the Iluvatar Age. The fame, beauty, and destiny of the elves were shared by the descendants of the elves and mortals, Earendil, Elving, and Elrond. Awakening and seduction by Morgoth People woke up with the rising of the sun in the country of Gildorien, in the far east of Middle-earth, beyond the mountains of Orocarna. About 60 - 200 years of the First Age Morgoth managed to find people and seduce them, inclining to evil. However, over time, some people, learning the truth, abandoned their faith in their self-proclaimed deity and headed west. Dark elves or Avars and gnomes helped people (they were called atanatars - fathers of atans) on their long journey. Therefore, their language had many words from the Avar dialect of Quenya and Kguzdul.
