"Of Men" is the twelfth chapter of The Silmarillion, as published by Christopher Tolkien. It briefly recounts the Awakening of Men, the Secondborn Children of Ilúvatar, after the first rising of the Sun. "Of Men" also compares the nature of the Elves to Men, and mentions Men's inevitable takeover of the dominion over Middle-earth from the Elder Children of Ilúvatar.
