My more learned compatriots,
Okay, I know that I need to read the book itself, but it will be a good while until I get this far into the HOME, and I'm incredibly curious. What does the title of Volume X of the HOME refer to? I can't imagine a way of interpreting The One Ring as being Morgoth's, and I don't remember any reference in the Silmarillion to Melkor/Morgoth having a ring, so if someone could please enlighten me, I'd be in their debt.

Many thanks,

It is an analogy.
Sauron put his power into the One Ring.
Morgoth put his power into Arda. Thus the world is 'Morgoth's Ring'.
