In what order should I read them?
Am I missing any book in the series? Joe Selness It depends on a lot of preference issues. Everything else was compiled by his son Christopher and others after his death. Unfinished Tales and Story of Kullervo are not sustained narratives but contain a lot more information regarding Tolkien's writing process, so I would read them last. During what years was this book written? Michael In the introduction, it states that the bulk of the story was written during the years , and almost certainly before page xii.

However, the story per se is hard to find it appealing itself, at least for me. Is it a strong solid bold story? Oh, yes, without any doubt. Even an unfinished single prose work by Tolkien is better than many totally finished book series by others. Additionally, the book contains stuff from The Kalevala , that not only helps to illustrate better The Story of Kullervo but brings a good image about general Finnish mythology.

Woe to Tolkien fans everywhere. The story is complete, bu This was such a tragic thing to read, and not just because of the harrowing nature of the tale; it was also tragic because Tolkien never finished it. The story is complete, but not completely written. The ending is laid down in a series of notes and statements.
The truly tragic nature of the tale can be seen, and appreciated somewhat, even if it is a very basic form of representation. For that reason alone, is this edition worth reading because it provides insight into his journey as a writer; it shows how this story led him down the road to Middle-Earth. The introduction eluded me to the fact that this is a tragedy in the true nature of the word; it harbours the features of what Aristotle considered to be tragic.
This is hard to actually spot when reading the story itself because of its incompleteness. Therefore, I strongly recommend reading the introduction before actually reading the story. I normally skip introductions myself but, in this case, I most ardently suggest reading it.
It added to my understanding of the story, and without it I honestly think I would have enjoyed it less.
So, I think it is a bit of a necessity with this work. Not easily recommended The quality of the editorial procedure of this book is very high but, overall, I think this is very expensive for what you get.
The commentaries are helpful, but not completely exhaustive. The two lectures were very similar and almost identical in parts.
I think if anything only one should have been included in here. This is not something I recommend to a casual Tolkien reader. The full force of the tale, and its impact on Tolkien as a writer, will only be felt by those that have read The Silmarillion ; and, by a lesser extent, The Children of Hurin. This is because without having a prior knowledge of these previous works, it would be hard to comprehend how he drew on this tale to develop his own fantasy world, which is much more beyond the surface value of The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings Indeed, the tale in itself is not what one would constitute as light reading.
It is the sort of thing that needs to be read a multitude of times before it can be fully grasped. This is not because it is complex, but because it feels fragmented and lacks the flow of a final draft. I think with this, the reader has to use their imagination, and see beyond the simple words on the page; they need to try and imagine what this could have looked like had it been finished.
The publishers know that because this is Tolkien, his fans will download it no matter the cost. A tragic three stars View all 4 comments. Oct 31, Nikki rated it it was ok Shelves: If his tale of the children of Hurin is something that really interests you, his interpretation of the Kalavala might be worth a look, but it feels honestly lacklustre. But this? Tolkien did amazing work, and I think his legacy is being rather diluted by the popular reissue of things like this — it should, of course, be accessible to scholars, biographers, etc.
But please stop selling this stuff as a complete work ready for public scrutiny! Originally posted here. Sep 23, Jason Koivu rated it really liked it Shelves: A take on a Finnish myth by J. Tolkien similar to his Silmarillion , only much shorter, narrower in vision, and a good deal more unfinished.
Since my father's side comes from Finland, my ears perk up whenever Finnish things get mentioned. It happens that infrequently. Sort of like how when I grew up in the country and only a handful of cars would drive by our house everyday, so I'd prairie dog it every dang time.
Anywho, back to the review This edition, edited by Verlyn Flieger, goes the extra length to recoup and curate the essence of Tolkien's attempt at The Story of Kullervo. There is a helpful introduction that sets up the story nicely for the uninitiated. There are reprints of Tolkien's handwritten notes. Following the actually story, which is about 40 pages long, are nearly a hundred pages worth of plot synopses notes and essays regarding Finnish myth.
There is more written about the story than the story itself. That's due diligence. The story is fairly brutal in the good, ol' fashioned sense of the word. Like many old fairy tales, people die often and often in horrible ways.
However, in keeping with tradition, Tolkien alludes to the horror rather than give you every bit of the gory details. Sometimes the alluded to scene is so fleeting you have to stop, go back, and reread. On two or three occasions I had a "wait, what?
The story is not "one for the ages", but it does have that classic and epic mythological feel to it. For story enjoyment, this gets 3 stars from me. But from a production value standpoint, I've bumped the book up a star.
May 24, Hadrian rated it really liked it Shelves: One of Tolkien's earlier pieces - unusually grim for him - shows clear influence from Finnish language and mythology. Includes notes, a glossary, character list, and two drafts of a lecture on the Kalevala. Hay que ser coherente. View 1 comment. Nel , circa, Tolkien giovane studente nemmeno ventenne, si imbatte proprio nel Kalevala, ne rimane profondamente colpito, soprattutto dal personaggio: In appendice al racconto, ci sono tre saggi: Brought up in the homestead of the dark magician Untamo, who killed his father, kidnapped his mother, and who tries three times to kill him when still a boy, Kullervo is alone save for the love of his twin sister, Wanona, and guarded by the magical powers of the black dog, Description: One day as she was sailing among the sedge-fenced pools with her trail of younglings following, an eagle swooped from heaven and flying high bore off one of her children to Telea: Kullervo marches to war, fresco by Akseli Gallen-Kallela, — Kullervo goes to war against Untamo and his people.
A snippet from the Finnish Kalevala is the basis for Tolkien's short tragic story. Ukko possessed a weapon, often a hammer called Ukonvasara, sometimes also an axe or a sword, by which he struck lightning Kullervo finally snaps, drawing his sword and asking it to take his life. Kullervo was the precursor to Tolkein's later "dark" characters like Hurin or even Frodo. Kullervo's father is klled, his mother raped and he is the product.
Brought up to hate Untamo, his father, Kullervo is alone except for the love of his sister Wanona. He is guarded by the magical powers of a dog named Musti. This is the tale of revenge and destiny.
It is a good tale but is not for everyone. It is not an easy read like his later works if you found LOTR to be a "difficult" read avoid Kullervo. It is also based off an ancient Finnish myth so much of the story is left to the imagination. Sagas are not meant to be novels. This book also contains a few nice articles about the Kalevala and Tolkein's research and creative goals with the tragic figure of Kullervo. So I did enjoy this tale, but it is not the most "fun" of stories.
It is dark and grim. Most Northern sagas are. I appreciated it for an older Tolkein work. But not likely to pick this one up again. Painful to admit, but I didn't enjoy it at all. The writing style was nothing like the Middle Earth books I love and I felt lost so many times, which is even worse when considering the length of this work.
Nov 19, Steve rated it really liked it Shelves: The story was okay, but this was much more interesting because of the fact that it was written so early in Tolkien's writing career.
The writing is very basic, but there are flashes of brilliance here. Apr 22, Jen rated it liked it Shelves: I really hate giving anything with Tolkien's name on it three stars, but the work he did isn't fully finished and the part that isn't him is kind of boring the intro or a bit too in-depth for my taste.
The story was actually very good, even in it's unpolished state. I wasn't into the essays Tolkien wrote about the story his was based off of and the commentary in the intro was confusing.
This is I really hate giving anything with Tolkien's name on it three stars, but the work he did isn't fully finished and the part that isn't him is kind of boring the intro or a bit too in-depth for my taste. This is good for a die-hard Tolkien fan who wants to read everything he wrote or something new by him.
If you aren't a huge Tolkien fan, maybe just read the story and skip the intro and essays. Three stars, sadly. I wanted to like this more. As a huge fan of Tolkien, I found it so interesting to see some of his unfinished work, this book really showed what his writing process was like and I loved reading the analysis from someone who clearly is a fan of Tolkien himself who can describe the meanings of his unpolished work so well.

In alarmed authorities forbade Ben Badis and the reformers to preach in official mosques. As the s went on, Ben Badis found himself increasingly drawn into the political debates of the time.
