가디언지에 10월 24일에 기사가 났었네요. 호빗 자체에는 딱히 큰 관심은 없어서 이제 알았지만
어쨌거나 스마우그만 보관. 태그 어쩔(ㄲ)
Smaug in Flight and Dwarves Marching
This earlier image was reused in Thror's Map, and on the dust jacket of The Hobbit
낯선 용에게서 그의 모습이 느껴지-------(ㄲ) 드워프 말고 왜 호빗은 없습니까! "그" 호빗은 왜 없습니까! (ㄲ)
Smaug Flies Around the Lonely Mountain
This is probably the earliest of four pictures of Smaug flying around the mountain, and is an untitled ink drawing with an elaborate sky. It appears to be set in daylight, though in The Hobbit Smaug flies only at night. The dragon is black against the mountainside, as is the front gate and Ravenhill on the south-west spur. At the bend of the river are the remains of the old bridge that Bilbo and the dwarves cross in chapter 13 ("most of its stones were now only boulders in the shallow noisy stream")
여기서부터 끝까지 4점은 모두 Lonely Mountain 배경의 동일한 컨텐츠의 일러스트. 조금씩 변해가는 모양새입니다만.
Smaug Flies Round the Mountain
This watercolour is similar in composition to Smaug Flies Around the Lonely Mountain. Beyond the bridge are the ‘ancient steps’ by which Bilbo and the dwarves climb the "high bank", and the road running around the spur to the path leading up to the look-out post. To the right are the ruins of Dale.
사실 호빗 원작을 읽진 않아서 잘 모르겠는데, 스마우그-라고 하면 황금 드래곤을 떠올리곤 해서 말입니다. 그런데 레드 드래곤이라는 것 같았는데, 황금 드래곤인가? (ㅎ)
The Front Door
The most notable change in this later view is the course of the river, which now winds "a wide loop over the valley of Dale(chapter 11)". Tolkien made this alteration also in his revised Thror’s Map around the end of 1936, but made a corresponding change in the text only when The Hobbit was in proof.
The Lonely Mountain
This drawing is demonstrably set at night, the dragon a stark white against a jet-black sky. Although this and The Lonely Mountain are more finished drawings, neither seems to have been offered to Allen & Unwin for publication – because they were made too late, perhaps, or because they contain varied greys or dense blacks not well suited to line-blocks.
여전히 깨알같은 스마우그
