Korean LOTR Book news

January 26, 2003 at 1:44 pm by Arathorn  - 

Thanks to Lee Loorien of the Lord Of The Rings Lab, we have some interesting news from back in November regarding the the Fourth Korean version of the books. Of special interest is the effort made by the translators to take the Old English etymology of Tolkien’s place- and people-names – and reconstruct them out of equivalent Ancient Korean elements, with the intention of preserving the same fundamental relative cultural meaning. [More] Updated! with some great photos of the books in question.
