"Unfinished Tales"; Part II
|Brief Description |
This is considered by Christopher Tolkien "as the single narrative story (as opposed to records and annals) that survived at all from the long ages of Númenor before the narrative of its end (the Akallabęth), and as a story unique in its content among my father's writings, which makes it of a unique character".
It has been given a "meticulous attention to the dating of events, so that the outlines have something of the appearance of annal-entries in a chronicle".
The latest "scheme," the text primarily followed, is entitled The Shadow of the Shadow, the Tale of the Mariner's Wife; and the Tale of the Queen Shepherdess" (Christopher Tolkien)
