THE NEW CENTURY BEGINS – XV

sunset-01

We are here, gathered together my friends, not to celebrate only the new elvish year (XV 1) which starts at sunset this March, 29th, 2017. No. We’re here because a NEW CENTURY starts! Not a human century though which are shorter, but an elvish one which lasts 144 years!

Last Yén started on March, 29th, 1873 and so you got an idea how far back that was, let’s check some interesting events that happened in the beginning of the XIV Yén:

05/01/1873 = 1st US postal card issued (and now we’re on the age of the internet for some decades where postal cards are pre-historic)

07/21/1873 = Jesse James gang’s 1st train robbery (and now we see those old Wild West stories on movies and not on the news as real life daily routine events)

09/06/1873 = Regular cable car service begins in San Francisco  (and the revolution on transportation didn’t stop there, did it? After all, we went to the moon not on cable cars)

Which changes will there be in 2160? Will there be peace after all? Is death be long gone? New technologies which we don’t even dream right now? Cure for all diseases? All these may be far-fetched, but so was the internet, the movies and the rockets in the year 1873, right?

Shire

When is the sunset where you live?


Also, we are proud to announce a NEW version of the Elvish Calendar designed by Erutulco Eruntano, our Quenya Master here, which gets rid of some bugs happening with the days of the week and so on. Now you got a better and enhanced version to calculate your days like an elven boss!

Tengwar calendar

You can change the languages now to: English, Spanish, German, Russian, Quenya and Quenya (Tengwar) beta version.

Download version 3.0 now and start the elvish century anew!

Not all those who wander are lost HUGE Tattoo Q101 Edition

gandalf-not-all-those-who-wander-are-lost-in-quenya-2

The mother of all translations in Quenya.

Not all those who wander are lost whole poem.

Floyd Rivera requested through Tattoo Q101 AND Floyd Rivera got it in 86 hours through Tattoo Q101

I bring you the revised edition of the original translation made by Ondo Carniliono few years ago. What is revised? Well, minor things. I kept the poetic and free spirit made originally and added a tiny bit only. It’s ridiculously tiny, don’t panic. Notice that Quenya101 version takes advantage of Quenya declension nature and plays freely with word order. Quenya allows room for that. Below, you won’t find a fixed translation. Literal wording. One word after another. NO! Word order allows it, so we danced with them. Not to mention vocabulary issues too. There are synonyms here and there that could be used differently, you know. So,… what you got here is the most poetic and accurate Quenya translation, aimed at the beauty of the idea behind the poem and using Quenya language to the farthest it can be reached.

In this post you’ll get the whole High-Elven Tengwar Collection If you’re interested in more fonts, check the Poem & Prose page here. Also, Quenya101 site is flowing abundantly with Tolkien translations. Use the search box, you’ll find it! If you don’t, just follow Floyd’s example, request it!

Do you want an extra mile? Check the full analysis here 

Now, let’s all grab our walking sticks and wander with Tolkien through this beautiful poem. Watch your step, wander freely but be lost not.

Tolkien Astronomy

192qvabo32xqzjpg

One question we might ask ourselves when embarking on a critical study of Tolkien’s work is “are we just reading too much into a story?” Christopher Tolkien argued for the authenticity of such analysis: “Such inquiries are in no way illegitimate in principle; they arise from an acceptance of the imagined world as an object of contemplation or study valid as many other objects of contemplation or study in the all too unimaginary world.”

What we are doing is no less than the good professor did to himself. Tolkien wrote in a 1957 letter, “Naturally the stories come first. But it is, I suppose, some test of the consistency of a mythology as such if it is capable of some sort of rational or rationalized explanation.” Tolkien was ever mindful of the inner consistency of his universe, and that it was not utterly exempt from the rules of the mundane world in which we live. In fact, Tolkien stated emphatically that Middle-earth is solar-system-in-quenyaenvisioned as our world, in a time far before all recorded history: In a letter to Rhona Beare in 1958 he wrote, “I have, I suppose, constructed an imaginary time, but kept my feet on my own mother-earth for place.” In an earlier letter to his publishing company, he explained, “Middle-earth, by the way, is not a name of a never-never land without relation to the world we live in…. It is just a use of Middle-English middle-erde (or erthe), altered from Old English Middangeard: the name for the inhabited lands of Men ‘between the seas’. And though I have not attempted to relate the shape of the mountains and land-masses to what geologists may say or surmise about the nearer past, imaginatively this ‘history’ is supposed to take place in a period of the actual Old World of this planet.”

In shaping his vision of Middle-earth, Tolkien sometimes ran into “difficulties” of a scientific nature. One he frankly and openly admitted was in the area of biology: “Elves and Men are evidently in biological terms one race, or they could not breed and produce fertile offspring – even as a rare event: there are two cases only in my legends of such unions, and they are merged in the descendents of Eärendil.” Given his mindfulness of natural laws, one may ask did Tolkien incorporate astronomical lore and fact into his universe? The answer is, in far more ways than can possibly be explored in a talk of this length. Astronomy helped, and haunted, Tolkien as he set out to develop his universe – or Eä, as the Elves would say.

Inspired by the excerpt above, I wanted to dedicate an image of my own mind. Planets as we know and as elves knew when they walked on Middle-Earth. The universe fascinates me and they have a special place in my heart. I know very little but love it very much. Perhaps, just like the elves did.

Oath of Fëanor in Quenya

This is a special request made by Jennifer Woodward. She wanted a little bit of the famous Oath of Fëanor and as this is an outstandingly significant part of Silmarillion and the very force behind all Noldor rebellion, I thought about preparing a special post about it. Below you’ll find the part she requested as well as the Quenya translation, pronunciation, Tengwar writing and a fine art to adorn this unique translation. Enjoy!

Neither law, nor love, nor league of swords,
Dread nor danger, not Doom itself
Shall defend him from Fëanáro, and Fëanáro’s kin,
Whoso hideth or hoardeth, or in hand taketh,
Finding keepeth or afar casteth
A Silmaril. This swear we all…
Death we will deal him ere Day’s ending,
Woe unto world’s end! 

Oath of Fëanor

Fëanor oath

Lá axan, lá melmë, lá lár maciliva,
Caurë hya raxë, lá mandë imma
Varyuva quén Fëanáronna, ar nossenna Fëanáro,
Aiquen nurta hya hosta, hya massë mapa,
Hiriessë harya hya háya hatë
Silmaril. Sina haryalmë ilyë vanda…
Qualmë antuvalmë quén nó metta aureva,
Nwalma tenna Ambar-metta!
