The Worst Hero | Of Turin Turumbar, Part 1 | #30
The tale of Túrin Turambar is one of the great stories of Middle-earth. But Túrin isn't really a hero--he makes bad decisions and runs from them. He refuses forgiveness. He ignores wise advice.
The One Ring
Since 1999, TheOneRing.com has been a home for Tolkien enthusiasts, fans of Peter Jackson’s films, and a great resource for maps, pictures, and our exhaustive complete list of film changes.
Make sure you listen to our weekly podcast with Tolkien fans and experts Jonathan Watson, Michael Grumbine, and Dan Coats as they discuss, debate, and dive deep (with a healthy helping of fun and laughs!) into everything Tolkien wrote–with some side-quests into Amazon’s Rings of Power and other new forays into Middle-earth.
