Unfinished Tales / The Disaster of the Gladden Fields
"Unfinished Tales"; Part III
|Brief Description |
The story, very detailed and descriptive, tells about Isildur's tragic death and how the Ring was lost - a key element in the overall LOTR - story.
- “This is a "late" narrative….. that belongs to the final period of my father's writing on Middle-earth....
- There are two versions: a rough typescript of the whole (clearly the first stage of composition), and a good typescript incorporating many changes that breaks off at the point where Elendur urged Isildur to flee (p. 286). The editorial hand has here had little to do. (Christopher Tolkien)"
