WEFOUNDDark Tower: The Gunslinger, Vol. 2 - The Little Sister of Eluria (Hardcover) By Stephen King (Author)


The Dark Tower is the center of all creation. It is said to be Gan 's body, and is held up by six Beams of great size and length, visible only by their effects on the lands along their lines - such as patterns in the clouds. At each end of the Beams, there is a portal, for a total of twelve. Each portal is protected by a guardian animal . Across the infinite number of worlds, the Tower can only be entered in one: Mid-World . It is necessary to present a sigul of Arthur Eld in order to enter the Tower and in some legends it is believed the Tower itself gave Arthur Eld his Sandalwood Guns and sword Excalibur .

The Great Old Ones eventually attempted to topple the Tower as well and replace it with a technological replica under the guidance of Maerlyn by releasing the Prim from large cracks, which then formed in the ground and filled with monstrosities. Two examples of these were Mia and Dandelo .

After the assault on the Tower, the Old Ones tried to make amends by creating the Twelve Guardian Animals. These Guardian Animals were technologically engineered by the Great Old Ones to mend the magic of the Beams that was previously assaulted, thus mixing magic and machine. The bulk of the Dark Tower Series recounts the journey of Roland Deschain along the Bear-Turtle beam. The Bear is Shardik and the Turtle is Maturin . The Turtle may be the turtle from It which is said to have vomited up the galaxies. Roland's ka-tet eventually confronts Shardik, who has gone insane.

" Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came " is a poem by English author Robert Browning , written in 1855 and first published that same year in the collection titled Men and Women . [1]

The title, "Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came", which forms the last words of the poem, is a line from William Shakespeare 's play King Lear ( ca. 1607). In the play, Gloucester's son, Edgar, lends credence to his disguise as Tom o' Bedlam by talking nonsense, of which this is a part:

Child Rowland to the dark tower came,
His word was still 'Fie, foh, and fum
I smell the blood of a British man.
King Lear , Act 3, scene 4

A film based on The Gunslinger and also serving as a sequel to the events of The Dark Tower due to the nature of said book's ending was released in August 2017. [1]

Stephen King saw The Dark Tower series as a first draft, initially planning to rewrite it to eliminate continuity errors and possibly remove himself from the later books, but after revising The Gunslinger , "he is trying to decide how much he can rewrite." [2]

Along his journey to the Dark Tower, Roland meets a great number of both friends and enemies. For most of the way he is accompanied by a group of people who together with him form the Ka-tet of the Nineteen and Ninety-nine , consisting of Jake Chambers , Eddie Dean , Susannah Dean , and Oy . Among his many enemies on the way are The Man in Black , Mordred, and The Crimson King .
