I think that Tolkien has done a wonderful job here of subverting the curse of Morgoth and the doom of Húrin and his kin with another motif free will Tolkien who strenuously avoids almost any hint of allegory throughout his vast imaginative work nevertheless imbued almost every corner of that world with reflections of his own deeply held Catholic convictions and sensibilities The core of the story is the tension between doomfate on the one hand and free will on the other Túrin makes decision after decision that invariably lead to tragic conseuences But does he do so because he is doomed to do so? Or because he is a man of haughty pride who stubbornly refuses to consider any viewpoint but his own using his considerable gifts natural charisma and rightfully legendary physicalmartial prowess to charge willfully forward regardless of even foreseeable conseuences to anyone and everyone around him? I believe that it is very much the latter but without necessarily completely repudiating the former The malice of such a being as Morgoth is a very real force in the tale of the Silmarils and such malevolence bent upon a single family and largely upon a single individual as Túrin rises to prominence can be understood to have tangible effect on individuals and events And even on a mundane level the incursions and aggressive actions of Morgoth's forces both the marauding armies of Orcs and the Easterlings who occupy Túrin's childhood homeland can be understood to push Túrin in a particular direction in his life that he might not have gone had circumstances in his life and in his world been otherwise So there is some range to the senses in which Morgoth can be said to have cursed the children of HúrinBut Túrin has also grown up the proud child of a proud mother; effectively orphaned from the age of nine he receives ostensibly every advantage yet the pride instilled in him from the earliest age tragically unravels every opportunity he is presented with from his youthful fostering in the halls of Thingol onwards It is his human choices not the supernatural force of an evil will that guide him on his tragic path and this complex narrative thread is what makes this to my mind one of the greatest of all of Tolkien's tales

book ã The Children of Húrin ↠ J.R.R. Tolkien

This tale of Middle earth's First Age which appeared in incomplete forms in the posthumously published The Silmarillion and Unfinished Tales also edited by Tolkien's son Christopher only hinted at the depth and power of the tragic story of Túrin and Niënor the children of Húrin t The Children of Hurin is a tragic tale of love and loss of remorseful earth shattering revelations; conseuently it is also one of the most moving stories Tolkien ever devised The execution never fully delivered it though only because Tolkien never finished editing it It just needs a little bit of polishing to remove a couple of tarnishes and then it would be perfection The Ancient Greeks understood exactly how to evoke sorrow pity and despair all in one powerful moment within their plays And here Tolkien follows suit The Children of Hurin could no longer live with themselves after what they discovered; it was enough to send the sanest of men mad Tolkien captures all this within his narrative The final scenes were majestic and terrible to behold dramatic and memorable in their awesomeness There’s no optimism here this is dark and beautiful easily the saddest thing Tolkien penned The plot is so strong and with swift final strokes the death blow of an ending is delivered elouently and mercilessly And of course an edition illustrated by Allan Lee helps to give Tolkien’s words even life “He was dark haired as his mother and promised to be like her in mood also; for he was not merry and spoke little though he learned to speak early and ever seemed older than his years Túrin was slow to forget injustice or mockery; but the fire of his father was also in him and he could be sudden and fierce Yet he was uick to pity and the hurts or sadness of living things might move him to tears” That being said though this most certainly has one of the worse opening chapters I’ve ever read in fiction Tolkien goes into extreme depth about Hurin’s lineage with the microscopic lens that is appropriate only in The Sillmarillion I was bombarded with names so many names that I was so confused It seemed a very odd way to begin things considering Tolkien eventually pulls this story into a traditional narrative and loses this authoritative authorial tone he began the book with Perhaps again this is because he never finished editing it So I recommend pushing through those first few chapters because this does eventually begin to pull itself together And it really begins with Turin a young warrior cursed by Morgoth The curse has come indirectly through his father’s lineage from the man who once dared to oppose the original dark lord He is haunted by black magic his destiny shaped leading to the tragic ending that befall the children of Hurin Turin’s prideful nature sets it off somewhat so his destiny and own personality set him on the road to his marvellously grim ending though Morgoth’s power is to blame his revenge is realised “The doom lies in yourself not in your name” “Then Morgoth stretching out his long arm towards Dor lomin cursed Hurin and Morwen and their offspring saying 'Behold The shadow of my thought shall lie upon them wherever they go and my hate shall pursue them to the ends of the world” The Children of Hurin lacks consistency The tone changed and the writing was far too complex and loaded with history for it to be approachable; it was so unlike the mastery of tone in The Lord of the Rings It lacked a certain sense of balance between storytelling and the insertion of history that makes the trilogy so grand However it is a vastly important work in the middle earth cannon On par with the brilliant Beren and Lúthien Tolkien tells the tale of an eually as powerful yet much complex and conflicted to say the least romance Not to be missedYou can connect with me on social media via My Linktree
