Item Description: Planeta Publishing, Mexico, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: Spanish . Brand New Book. Kullervo el Desdichado, como Tolkien lo llamaba, es un nino huerfano sin fortuna alguna, con poderes sobrenaturales pero marcado por un destino tragico. Educado en la granja del oscuro mago Untamo, Kullervo estaria solo en el mundo si no fuera por el amor de Wanona, su hermana gemela, y por la proteccion de los poderes magicos de Musti, el perro negro. Kullervo es vendido como esclavo y jura vengarse del mago, pero cuando esta a punto de llevar a cabo la venganza se da cuenta de que no puede escapar al mas cruel de los destinos. Tolkien afirmo que La historia de Kullervo fue el germen de mis intentos de escribir leyendas propias y que constituia uno de los temas principales en las leyendas de la Primera Edad. De hecho, Kullervo es el precursor de Turin Turambar, el tragico heroe incestuoso de Los hijos de Hurin. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9786070736780

Item Description: Mariner Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. Shows how Finnish mythology and folk tales were instrumental to how Tolkien created his own legendarium. --Boston Globe Kullervo, son of Kalervo, is perhaps the darkest and most tragic of all J.R.R. Tolkien s characters. Hapless Kullervo, as Tolkien called him, is a luckless orphan boy with supernatural powers and a tragic destiny. Brought up in the homestead of the dark magician Untamo, who killed his father, kidnapped his mother, and tried three times to kill him when he was still a boy, Kullervo is alone save for the love of his twin sister, Wan?na, and the magical powers of the black dog Musti, who guards him. When Kullervo is sold into slavery he swears revenge on the magician, but he will learn that even at the point of vengeance there is no escape from the cruelest of fates. Tolkien himself said that The Story of Kullervo was the germ of my attempt to write legends of my own, and was a major matter in the legends of the First Age. Tolkien s Kullervo is the clear ancestor of Turin Turambar, the tragic incestuous hero of The Silmarillion. Published with the author s drafts, notes, and lecture essays on its source work, the Kalevala, The Story of Kullervo is a foundation stone in the structure of Tolkien s invented world. A fascinating read. --NPR. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9780544947245
