Albero e foglia (The Lord of the Rings: Seven Book Editions #3)

4.16  ·  Rating details ·  3,888 Ratings  ·  96 Reviews
Il libro contiene alcune fiabe di J. R. R. Tolkien, precedute da un saggio sulla fiaba. Accostare la saggistica e la narrativa di Tolkien non vuol dire giustapporre due settori della sua attività, ma offrire due profili diversi dello stesso scrittore. Sia nella critica che nel racconto di Tolkien si nota la stessa grande e tipica qualità: la serietà del mistico e del metaf ...more

حالا پس یهکم خاطره بگم دلتون بسوزه؛ من این کتابو با مطهرهجان خریدم! بله بله همین مطهره گودریدزمون! یاح یاح یاح!*خندهی-شیطانی* راه رفتیم حرف زدیم و حس کردم خدایا من چرا باید اینقد دیر باهاش آشنا بشم. رفتیم کتابفروشیا بعد رفتیم کافه نقاشی کردیم باقلوا خوردیم و حرفای بسیار بسیار شیطانی زدیم. *نیشخند-خبیثانه* و خلاصه تو یکی از کتابفروشیا درخت و برگ رو دیدم و گفتم چطوره؟ برام گفت و از وصفش خوشم اومد و الانم دارم از ذوق منفجر میشم. مشخصه. :))

اولین چیزی بود که از تالکین خوندم.
داستانش شباهتای خیلی زیادی به قصه های پریانی که بچگی ها میخونیدم داره، اما توصیفش... قابل بیان نیست.
دنیاش انگار واقعی بود. نه به خاطر قشنگی توصیفات یا واقعی بودنشون، به خاطر عمقی که داشتن.
داستان اول از همه پخته تر بود و بیشتر میخورد یه طورایی فلسفی باشه. این سوال مدام تو ذهنم بود که پس تکلیف هنرش چی میشه اگه کسی نبینتش. اما آخر داستان به جوابم رسیدم.
داستان دوم از همه بچگونه تر بود. حتی میتونم بگم یه داستان تکراری، این بار به قلم تالکین.
سومی از همه بیشتر به قصه
I don’t think I have too much to say about _The Treason of Isengard_. It is very much, of course, a continuation of the previous HoME volume as we follow Tolkien’s further development of the story of the Lord of the Rings in as near a chronological manner as Christopher Tolkien is able to piece together from the numerous drafts, re-writings, and changes in his father’s text. That is perhaps the first thing to note: throughout the HoME series it has become obvious that Christopher Tolkien really ...more

تالکین از نویسندههاییه که به قول هولدن
you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it.
در طول کتاب هی به این فکر میکردم که چی میشد اگر تالکین پدربزرگم بود.

The continuing analysis of the writing process.

It's not so wide-open as it was in The Return of the Shadow, since the prior story imposed definitely constraints. But he's still sorting out which hobbits have what names, and which ones will go. At one point Elrond firmly puts his foot down on the notion that either Merry or Pippin can go. Sam didn't always go with Frodo after the split up, and sometimes he was the first one to see Gandalf again. Eowyn was considered as a love interest for Aragorn

باورم نمی شود این نوشته های ساده که شاید در ظاهر کودکانه هم بنظر برسند انقدر برایم دوست داشتنی شده باشند. البته بشخصه از طرفداران ارباب حلقه ها بوده و هستم و آشنایی من با تالکین هم از این فیلم شروع شد . سه داستان انتخابی لذتبخش هستند و سریع هم خوانده می شوند و بخاطر نثر ساده حتی تو اتوبوس و مترو هم بسادگی می شود خواند. زاویه دید سوم شخص دانای کل شاید در اول برای چنین داستانهایی مناسب نباشد که راوی بنا به دانای کل بودن از همه چیز خبر دارد و هیچ رازی بر او پوشیده نیست و شاید این حس به خواننده دست ...more

زیبا و عمیق. اولین کنابی که از تالکین خوندم حدود بیست سال پیش. اون موقع به نظرم ترجمه ش خوب بود و مقدمهی مترجم هم خوب بود و کمک کننده برای شناخت ادبیات فانتزی. شروعی بود برای دوستی با ادبیات فانتزی که قبل از اون چندان دوستش نداشتم . پارسال بعد از سالها که نایاب بود ناشری دیگر چاپش را تجدید کرد. اگر فرصت کنم دوست دارم دوباره بخوانمش و آن لذت را تکرار کنم. ...more

Recommends it for: Tolkien fans interested in the development of The Lord of the Rings

In my review of the previous volume in Christopher Tolkien's History Of Middle-Earth, I said that it was a quicker, easier read than some of the earlier books in the series. One of the main reasons for this is that the four books that make up The History of the Lord of the Rings--the series-within-a-series--lead to an actual published endpoint. There is a final, definitive Lord of the Rings, and so it's enjoyable to see the early ideas and drafts heading toward the familiar story.

This book is now a little dated. However, it is an inspiring and interesting bite-sized look at fairy tales as literature. The second story: Leaf and Niggle is reminiscent of Oscar Wilde's The Selfish Giant. It is very well written and has some wonderful moments, which make those of us writers' who try to work alone smile and determine to hide away less.

Prevod je jeziv i nepismen. Nikako ne čitati ovo izdanje na srpskom. Pet zvezdica je zbog originala koji je fenomenalan.

عالی بود.
البته من کامل تمومش نکردم منظورم اینه که مقدمه و مطالب آخر کتاب خیلی حوصله سربر بودن و نتونستم زیاد ازشون بخونم.
ولی داستانا عالی بودن. این هفته کلن با خیال این سه داستان داشتم ادامه میدادم.

First let me clearly state, hats off to Mr. Tolkien. The man is simply brilliant and so immersed himself in his art that I one could reasonably argue that he is the father of the modern fantasy.

If you choose to read this book, I think you'll enjoy it if you want to understand this great author's way of approaching his craft. If you're just looking for another good Tolkien story, just read "Leaf by Niggle" and skip the other parts.

Tree and Leaf is composed of four parts. An essay - "On Fairy Stor

Dense and certainly not for everyone, but fascinating and full of intriguing odds and ends about the creation of the Lord of the Rings series. Tolkien originally intended Aragorn marry Eowyn! It's amazing how late some very essential plot points (like Arwen) enter the story at all.

As (sub)criações de J.R.R. Tolkien

Segundo Tolkien, a invenção do adjetivo foi poderosíssima: “nenhum feitiço ou mágica do Belo Reino é mais potente [que os adjetivos]”, disse ele em seu livro Sobre Histórias de Fadas. Assim, Tolkien continua, “podemos pôr um verde mortal no rosto de um homem e produzir horror, podemos fazer reluzir a rara e terrível lua azul, ou podemos fazer com que os bosques irrompam em folhas de prata e os carneiros tenham pelagem de ouro, e pôr o fogo quente no ventre do

I will dare suggest that no book has ever been simultaneously so richly fantastic while also wholly real as The Lord of the Rings. This story feels like spending time with real people. And I love them. I mean, I feel as though I really know, and really love them.

I couldn't imagine the book improving after the first part of Fellowship. Yet, this volume, Book 1 of Two Towers, is the best of the three so far. I could hardly put it down. Just as with the other two, I was wholly arrested by it, thin

This is a continuation of the notes and drafts from Tolkien that his son Christopher meticulously researched and presents to fans of Lord of the Rings. For non-fans this book would be extremely tedious and boring but for those of us curious enough to want to know more of the thoughts and insights from Professor Tolkien in formulating his great story it is a very interesting read. Although not a complete rewrite with huge plot changes or character revisions this volume does include some interesti ...more

Como vários livros do Tolkien, esse traz alguns de seus pensamentos, dessa vez sobre Fadas, ou melhor, sobre Contos de Fadas, seguido de um conto bem interessante chamado Folha de Migalha.

Na primeira parte do livro ele conta toda sua opinião sobre as histórias e contos sobre o reino encantado, não apenas de fadas, porque na verdade, em um reino encantado não existem apenas fadas. Ele disseca as curiosidades de tudo isso é ainda fala da sua opinião sobre a cultura popular achar essas histórias s

Fellowship departs

Where are Frodo and Sam?
Gandalf returns
There seems to be less conflict within smaller teams.
Legolas and Gimli seem to be best friends since part2, there was more competition between them in the movie.

“Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger.”

You get immersed into the story and the book ends too soon, can't wait for the next part.

Christopher Tolkien has continued to do a good job at assembling all of his father's notes and drafts, and putting them together in some sort of semblance of a "narrative arc" where you can see the final story of The Lord of the Rings come together. Lots of fun little facts are revealed, and it's very interesting to see what could have been (with a little relief on occasion that he made different choices!).
Jeffrey Gerhart
"The Treason of Isengard", was an interesting take on Sauraman's betrayal and eventual defeat by the Ents as well as the Battle of Helm's Deep. The editor's notes of Christopher Tolkien that explained how J.R.R Tolkien came up with the final form of these stories from "The Two Towers" were very informative. I'd recommend it to any fan of Middle Earth stories.
Artnoose McMoose
As with any book in the History of Middle Earth series, if you’re interested in reading early drafts of LotR to see how the story and characters changed from draft to draft, then this book is for you.

How many times did Tolkien break up the fellowship before deciding on how it happened? So many times!

I read this while following the Mythgard Academy seminar, which I highly recommend.
Daniel Lehto
Somewhat narrow minded essay, despite it's efforts to fight that kind of thinking regarding fairy tales. The second part (the short story that is), was somewhat entertaining though.

1) I dislike essays. But this is Tolkien on fairy stories.
2) I don't like allegory either. But this is Tolkien again.

"Sognare non sempre è vanità.non sempre invano vorremmo aver ragione di un dolore vero..."

raccoglie fiabe,una poesia,un saggio e un racconto epico. Appare subito chiaro il perchè questo libro non venga più stampato e distribuito. Racchiude poca narrativa a fronte di molti approfondimenti sulla fiaba,il mito ecc ecc. Un libro più di studio che di piacere (non che le 2 cose non possano coincidere) che racchiude in se un'altro grave difetto editoriale. 2 dei racconti che propone sono oggi stampati

I have already read The Return of the Shadow, which is the first book in Christopher Tolkien's "History of The Lord of the Rings". That book covers the process of writing the Prologue through Balin's Tomb in Moria, with the Fellowship comprised of five hobbits and Gandalf. This book, The Treason of Isengard, backtracks significantly and begins with multiple takes on the Council of Elrond, where the nine final Fellowship members are chosen and ends with the first encounters with the Riders of Roh ...more
