    It is a legendary time long before The Lord of the Rings, and Morgoth, the first Dark Lord,
    dwells in the vast fortress of Angband in the North; and within the shadow of the fear of Angband,
    and the war waged by Morgoth against the Elves, the fates of Túrin and his sister Niënor will be tragically entwined.

    Their brief and passionate lives are dominated by the elemental hatred that Morgoth bears them as
    the children of Húrin, the man who dared to defy him to his face. Against them Morgoth sends his
    most formidable servant, Glaurung, a powerful spirit in the form of a huge wingless dragon of fire,
    in an attempt to fulfil the curse of Morgoth, and destroy the children of Húrin.


    Begun by J.R.R. Tolkien at the end of the First World War, The Children of Húrin became the
    dominant story in his later work on Middle-earth. But he could not bring it to a final and finished form.
    In this book Christopher Tolkien has constructed, after long study of the manuscripts, a coherent
    narrative without any editorial invention.

    O avtorju

    -J.R.R. Tolkien-

    J.R.R. Tolkien (1892–1973) je oče sodobne fantazijske književnosti in skorajda ne potrebuje predstavitve. Rodil se je v Južn Afriki, kjer je njegov oče delal kot vodja banke. Pri treh letih se je z materjo in bratom vrnil v Anglijo, kjer je ostal vse življenje.Že kot mlad je pokazal veselje do starih jezikov, ki ga je zaznamovalo z izbiro poklica. Diplomiral je iz stare norveščine, sodeloval pa je tudi pri pisanju Oxfordovega angleškega slovarja. Poučeval je staro angleščino, obenem pa še vrsto drugih jezikov. A jezike si je tudi izmišljal. Tako je v okviru Srednjega sveta, kamor je postavil vse svoje pripovedi od Hobita in Gospdarja prstanov do Sllmariliona, ustvaril vrsto jezikov in pisav, ki so jih uporabljala tamkajšnja bitja. Poleg fantazijskih del je napisal vrsto znanstvenih razprav, pero pa je uporabil tudi za pisanje pesmi. Leta 1972 je prejel častni naziv komendnik
    Britanskega imperija
    (CBE) in častni doktorat Oxfordske univerze iz književnosti. Umrl je leto kasneje, njegovo literarno zapuščino pa je v upravljanje prevzel njegov najmlajši sin Christopher.
