Hither Shore

Revision as of 20:36, 7 June 2007 by (Talk)

Hither Shore was a term used especially by the Elves for the mortal lands of Middle-earth, a reminder of the far distant shores of Aman. In First Age Sindarin, it also had a more specific meaning, since it translates into that language as the name Nevrast, a cold seaward region in the northwest of Beleriand.

Hither Shore is also the title of the bilingual (German and English) annual published by the German Tolkien Society (Deutsche Tolkien Gesellschaft/DTG). Think of it roughly as the German equivalent of Tolkien Studies. Visit the webpage for Hither Shore at [1].
