    • «Therefore I may not think, throughout this world,
      why cloud cometh not on my mind
      when I think over all the life of earls,
      how at a stroke they have given up hall,
      mood-proud thanes. So this middle earth
      each of all days ageth and falleth.» J.R.R.

    Resumo The Wanderer

    Part of a new series Legends from the Ancient North, The Wanderer tells the classic tales that influenced JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings

    'So the company of men led a careless life,
    All was well with them: until One began
    To encompass evil, an enemy from hell.
    Grendel they called this cruel spirit...'

    J.R.R. Tolkien spent much of his life studying, translating and teaching the great epic stories of northern Europe, filled with heroes, dragons, trolls, dwarves and magic. He was hugely influential for his advocacy of Beowulf as a great work of literature and, even if he had never written The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, would be recognised today as a significant figure in the rediscovery of these extraordinary tales.

    Legends from the Ancient North brings together from Penguin Classics five of the key works behind Tolkien's fiction.They are startling, brutal, strange pieces of writing, with an elemental power brilliantly preserved in these translations.They plunge the reader into a world of treachery, quests, chivalry, trials of strength.They are the most ancient narratives that exist from northern Europe and bring us as near as we will ever get to the origins of the magical landscape of Middle-earth (Midgard) which Tolkien remade in the 20th century.
