內容簡介

紐時暢榜文學類TOP1


以《魔戒》系列聞名全世界的文豪托爾金逝世四十多年後,讀者們依舊著迷於他創造出來的中土世界,在2018上半年托爾金之子曾將父親遺留下來的手稿整理並出版了《貝倫和露西亞》,而這本關於中土世界的故事《貢多林的陷落》同樣誕生自托爾金遺留的手稿中。

故事和中土世界的兩大勢力有關,一是邪惡的魔苟斯,另一是大海之神烏歐牟,兩者之間的衝突讓烏歐牟想起魔苟斯懼怕的精靈國度貢多林,但貢多林地處秘林,烏歐牟因此派出人類之子圖爾去尋找貢多林的位置。

因為烏歐牟的幫助,圖爾成功抵達貢多林,受到精靈們的歡迎,之後和精靈王的女兒成親,生下了一個兒子名叫埃蘭迪爾,他對往後中土世界的重要性卻是烏歐牟沒有預想到的。

最後魔苟斯出軍攻打貢多林,導致貢多林的陷落,最後圖爾、精靈公主和兒子埃蘭迪爾逃出貢多林,開啟了另一個故事。

In the Tale of The Fall of Gondolin are two of the greatest powers in the world. There is Morgoth of the uttermost evil, unseen in this story but ruling over a vast military power from his fortress of Angband. Deeply opposed to Morgoth is Ulmo, second in might only to Manwë, chief of the Valar.

Central to this enmity of the gods is the city of Gondolin, beautiful but undiscoverable. It was built and peopled by Noldorin Elves who, when they dwelt in Valinor, the land of the gods, rebelled against their rule and fled to Middle-earth. Turgon King of Gondolin is hated and feared above all his enemies by Morgoth, who seeks in vain to discover the marvellously hidden city, while the gods in Valinor in heated debate largely refuse to intervene in support of Ulmo's desires and designs.

Into this world comes Tuor, cousin of Túrin, the instrument of Ulmo's designs. Guided unseen by him Tuor sets out from the land of his birth on the fearful journey to Gondolin, and in one of the most arresting moments in the history of Middle-earth the sea-god himself appears to him, rising out of the ocean in the midst of a storm. In Gondolin he becomes great; he is wedded to Idril, Turgon's daughter, and their son is Eärendel, whose birth and profound importance in days to come is foreseen by Ulmo.

At last comes the terrible ending. Morgoth learns through an act of supreme treachery all that he needs to mount a devastating attack on the city, with Balrogs and dragons and numberless Orcs. After a minutely observed account of the fall of Gondolin, the tale ends with the escape of Tuor and Idril, with the child Eärendel, looking back from a cleft in the mountains as they flee southward, at the blazing wreckage of their city. They were journeying into a new story, the Tale of Eärendel, which Tolkien never wrote, but which is sketched out in this book from other sources.

Following his presentation of Beren and Lúthien Christopher Tolkien has used the same 'history in sequence' mode in the writing of this edition of The Fall of Gondolin. In the words of J.R.R. Tolkien, it was ‘the first real story of this imaginary world’ and, together with Beren and Lúthien and The Children of Húrin, he regarded it as one of the three 'Great Tales' of the Elder Days.
