Tolkien's 'Unfinished Tales' Gets Persian Translation

Source: IBNA
J.R.R. Tolkien's collection of stories and essays of Middle-earth, Unfinished Tales, has been translated into Persian by Reza Alizadeh and published in Iran. This is just one of several of Tolkien's books to have been rendered into Persiann; the others being The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings, The Silmarillion, and The Children of Húrin.

Unfinished Tales (full title Unfinished Tales of Númenor and Middle-earth) was never completed by Tolkien; instead, his son Christopher edited the notes and manuscripts his father had left behind, and the book was first published in 1980.

The book features many well-known stories and characters from The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, such as "The History of Galadriel and Celeborn" and "The Quest of Erebor," but also features some lesser-known tales which may appeal to those with a deeper thirst for Middle-earth history: "Of Tuor and His Coming to Gondolin," "Cirion and Eorl and the Friendship of Gondor and Rohan", and more.
