The Children of Húrin





The first complete book by J.R.R. Tolkien in three decades--since the publication of The Silmarillion in 1977--The Children of Húrin reunites fans of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings with Elves and Men, dragons and Dwarves, Eagles and Orcs. Presented for the first time as a complete, standalone story, this stirring narrative will appeal to casual fans and expert readers alike, returning them to the rich landscape and characters unique to Tolkien.



Adam Tolkien on The Children of Húrin



How did a lifetime of stories become The Children of Húrin? In an essay on the making of the book, Adam Tolkien, grandson of J.R.R. Tolkien (and French translator of his History of Middle-earth), explains that the Húrin legends made up the third "Great Tale" of his grandfather's Middle-earth writing, and he describes how his father, Christopher Tolkien, painstakingly collected the pieces of the legend into a complete story told only in the words of J.R.R. Tolkien. "For anyone who has read The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings," he writes, The Children of Húrin "allows them to take a step back into a larger world, an ancient land of heroes and vagabonds, honour and jeopardy, hope and tragedy."

Por não revelar a localização de Gondolin (e, assim, trair seus amigos) ao Senhor do Escuro, ele e sua família recebem uma maldição. Túrin e Niënor, seus filhos, crescem, vivem e morrem sob esta sombra. O livro então nos trás este conto: o de Túrin Turambar e sua sina. Fadado ao fracasso e a morte em tudo que fez e, apesar disso, senhor de alguns dos... leia mais
