• John Ronald Reuel TOLKIEN was born in 1892 in Africa. He was an
English writer, poet, philologist and university professor. He is known
as the author of classic high fantasy works The Silmarillion, The Hobbit
and The Lord of the Rings. However, there is one more book, THE
CHILDREN OF HURIN which comes after the Silmarrillion.
• The Children of Hurin is the most recently published story to take
place in Middle-earth. It was started to write in 1918 and it had been
revised many times, but it wasn’t published until 2007. More than
thirty years of notes were written by J.R.R. Tolkien, but they were
compiled and edited by his son, Christopher Tolkien because Tolkien
died in 1982.
• Morgoth is a evil god. He was really angry because Hurin
didn’t do what Morgoth said. So, Morgoth curse him.
• Hurin is a father . He is really brave, smart and optimistic
man. He all care about his children , Turin, Nienor and Urwen
and his wife, Morwen. This behaviour is the most important
thing for me, and shows me that he is really strong. He lived
for one aim. He devoted his live to his family. However, when
he went to Morgoth’s land, Morgoth told him “ with my eyes
you shall see and with my ears you shall hear, and nothing
shall be hidden from you.” Morgoth capture him his
dungeon. He couldn’t do anything when something
happened to his children.
• Turin is brave like his father. But she is really
stubborn. He did always what he thought. Because of
this, trouble found him always. Turin was in different
locales. He got through so many incidents. He met up
with elves, varying sorts of humans, dwarves and a
dragon sent by Morgoth. However, nothing could stop
him to find his mother and his sister. This make me
feel close to Turin. This shows me that his family was
really important for him.
• Nienor and Morwen went to Thingon where
Turin should be. Because they couldn’t find
him, they left there and went to find him, too.
• This make me so excited because Turin and
his mother were trying to find each other. I
wondered how they could find and I hoped
that they wouldn’t be hurt by evil Orcs or
• Turin found a girl, Nienor.
They didn’t know each
other. They become to fall
in love. They even got
• However, this happiness at last came to an end
because Glaurung and Turin fought and Turin kill
dragon,. However at last it attacked him with last
force. When it was dying, he told Nienor that they
were siblings. This made her so sad that he jumped
off a cliff. This part was really affect me.
• Turin found out that Nienor was deadi and she was
his sister. This make me confused what happened
next. If I were him, I couldn’t stop to suicided
myself,too because of anger.
• Then, he begged his sword to kill him. He did that
and This was the end of his life.
• Hurin couldn’t protect his family. All members were
killed and MORGOTH’S CURSE CAME TRUE
