The Children of Húrin compared with The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales and HoMe

Húrin i Huor lecą do Gondolinu - Alan LeeHyalma (Moscow), our co-redactor presents only here (and in print in next Simbelmynë #28) her analysis of the text of The Children of Húrin compared with The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales and HoMe. This is a very interesting list of divergences which should be known to everyone who is interested in the similarities and differencies between these books. Thanks to Hyalma’s work you can find out what new can be found in the newest Tolkien’s book. Welcolme!

List of divergences between CH and S, UT, HoMe (Word document in English!)

In her document Hyalma writes:

 

Here I marked in red all the divergences (that I could find) between CH and published Silmarillion/Narn. The pieces marked in green are absent in S/UT, but are present in Grey Annals.

I’ve written about this news at Mythsoc, the message board of the Mythopoeic Society. I hope more Westron speaking Tolkienists will visit our service. Welcome!

Thank you very much, Galadhorn :)
Greetings to all English speaking people who will have a look at this page.

And feel free to tell me, if you find some divergence that I haven’t noticed :)

I’ve published this doc as a google document, at: http://docs.google.com/View?docid=dd3rm5qc_0fz2rjd

If you have any objections, I’ll take it down. I just thought it might be a bit more accessible this way – for those without the ability to view or save a .doc

Thank you for that great job Hyalma! :)

About some of the differences – Polish editor contacted HC agent in names and elvish words case and they explained these words should be spelled the same as in the Silmarillion. We’ve got these corrected in the Polish issue of CoH, but they are not corrected in the original issue (probably because the English issue was already printed/in the process of printing when our translator found this difference). These names/elvish words should sound exactly as in the Silmarillion when CoH says differently:
– „Atanatári” is the proper form not „Atanatarni”
– Dor-Cúarthol not Dor Cúarthol
– Hírilorn not Hirilorn

Regards!

Great job Hyalma! I’ve posted your article at the Israeli MB. It is very significant article and you’ve completed it so quickly… It will help us a lot in evaluating the Children of Hurin text.

My attention was drawn to this only now, by a discussion in the Tolkien Society facebook group, but both the doc linked in the original news item and the google document linked by Matt are unavailable or inaccessible. Is there still a place where this interesting document may be found on the internet?
