LOTR The Fellowship of the Ring

The ring passed to Isildur

who had this one chance to destroy evil forever.

But the hearts of men

are easily corrupted.

And the ring of power has a will of its own.

a will - воля

It betrayed Isildur to his death.

And some things that should not have been forgotten were lost.

to forget - забывать

History became legend, legend became myth.

to become - становиться, делаться

And for two and a half thousand years

the ring passed out of all knowledge.

Until, when chance came

it ensnared a new bearer.

My precious.

The ring came to the creature Gollum

who took it deep into the tunnels of the Misty Mountains.

And there it consumed him.

It came to me.

My own. My love. My own.

My precious.

The ring brought to Gollum unnatural long life.

For 500 years it poisoned his mind.

And in the gloom of Gollum's cave, it waited.

Darkness crept back into the forests of the world.

Rumor grew of a shadow in the East

rumor - слух, молва

whispers of a nameless fear.

whisper - шепот

And the ring of power perceived

to perceive - воспринимать, чувствовать, ощущать, понимать, осознавать, постигать

its time had now come.

It abandoned Gollum.

to abandon - отказываться, оставлять, покидать, бросать

But something happened then

the ring did not intend.

to intend - намереваться

It was picked up

to pick up - поднимать, поднять

by the most unlikely creature imaginable.

unlikely - маловероятный, невероятный

What's this?

A hobbit.

Bilbo Baggins of the Shire.

A ring.


For the time will soon come

when Hobbits will shape the fortunes of all.

fortune - состояние, фортуна, счастье, удача, судьба
