In a time long before The Lord of the Rings Morgoth, the first Dark Lord, dwelt in the vast fortress of Angband, the Hells of Iron, in the North; and the tragedy of Túrin and his sister Nienor unfolded within the shadow of the fear of Angband and the war waged by Morgoth against the lands and secret cities of the Elves.Their brief and passionate lives were dominated by the elemental hatred that Morgoth bore them as the children of Húrin, the man who had dared to defy and to scorn him to his face. Against them he sent his most formidable servant, Glaurung, a powerful spirit in the form of a huge wingless dragon of fire. Into this story of brutal conquest and flight, of forest hiding-places and pursuit, of resistance with lessening hope, the Dark Lord and the Dragon enter in direly articulate form. Sardonic and mocking, Glaurung manipulated the fates of Túrin and Nienor by lies of diabolic cunning and guile, and the curse of Morgoth was fulfilled.Begun by J.R.R. Tolkien at the end of the First World War, The Children of Húrin became the dominant story in his later work on Middle-earth. But he could not bring it to a final and finished form. In this book Christopher Tolkien has constructed, after long study of the manuscripts, a coherent narrative without any editorial invention.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Pages: 25. Chapters: Aerin, Beleg, Brandir, Dorlas, Finduilas, Glaurung, Hurin, Lalaith, Melian, Morgoth, Morwen, Nienor Niniel, Orodreth, Sador, Thingol, Turgon, Turin Turambar. Excerpt: Turin Turambar (pronounced ) is a fictional character in J. R. R. Tolkien's legendarium. "Turambar and the Foaloke," begun in 1917, is the first appearance of Turin in the legendarium. J.R.R. Tolkien consciously based the lay on the medieval story of Kullervo in the Finnish mythological poem Kalevala, saying that it was "an attempt to reorganize...the tale of Kullervo the hapless, into a form of my own." Also called "The Tale of Grief," "Narn i Chin Hurin," commonly called "The Narn," it tells of the tragic fates of the children of Hurin, namely his son Turin (Turambar) and his daughter Nienor. Excerpts of the story were published before, in The Silmarillion (prose), Unfinished Tales (prose), The Book of Lost Tales Part II (prose), The Lays of Beleriand (verse in alliterative long-lines) and most recently in 1994 in The War of the Jewels (prose), the latter three part of The History of Middle-earth series. Turin Turambar is the primary protagonist and tragic hero of the novel The Children of Hurin, published after Tolkien's death by his son Christopher Tolkien and drawing from many of the above sources to finally present a complete narrative. In the books, Turin was a Man of the First Age of Middle-earth, whose family had been cursed by the ultimate evil being of the legendarium, Morgoth. In course of his unsuccessful attempts to defy the curse, Turin brought ruin upon several Mannish and Elven strongholds as well as upon himself and his sister Nienor Niniel. Their history was recorded in the Tale of the Children of Hurin or Narn i Chin Hurin, which was claimed by Tolkien to be the ultimate source of the published writings. Turin is briefly mentioned in The Fellowship of the Ring, but little more is said than that he was one of "the mighty Elf-friends of old." In The Two Towers, his name is briefly mentioned as a strong warrior. Turin was the son of Hurin Thalion, Lord of the Folk of Hador, and Morwen Eledhwen of the House of Beor. He was born in the month of Gwaero

More precisely I will be investigating his depiction of Nature within these tales in order to determine if that depiction is medieval, in keeping with the literature in which he immersed himself. I propose to look at Nature in several aspects: Nature as setting, Nature and character as mirror, Nature as agent, Nature as metaphysics. I will look at hierarchy, cosmology, and animacy, and metaphysics. Attempting to discern which view was Tolkien's personal view is outside the scope of this paper. My goal and interest is solely in his depiction.
