SummaryEdit

Hanging Gardens was a travel guide to an unknown location. The book was written in Dwemeris (the language of the Dwemer), and translated to Aldmeris (the language of the Aldmer). The author and translator of the book, Wasten Coridale, stated that some fragments in Aldmeris are readable, but could be enough for a scholar of Aldmeris to translate parts of other Dwemer books.

Hanging Gardens
of Wasten Coridale


This book was apparently written in Dwemer and translated to Aldmeris. Only fragments of the Aldmeris is readable, but it may be enough for a scholar of Aldmeris to translate fragments of other Dwemer books.

...guide Altmer-Estrial led with foot-flames for the town-center where lay dead the quadrangular gardens...

...asked the foundations and chains and vessels their naming places...

...why they did not use solid sound to teach escape from the Earth Bones nor nourished them with frozen flames...

....the word I shall have once written of, this "art" our lesser cousins speak of when their admirable ignorance...

...but neither words nor experience cleanses the essence of the strange and terrible ways of defying our ancestors' transient rules.

The translation ends with a comment in Dwemer in a different hand, which you can translate as follows: *NOTE*

"Put down your ardent cutting-globes, Nbthld. Your Aldmeris has the correct words, but they cannot be properly misinterpreted.

TriviaEdit

  • In the Morrowind version, this says "which you can translate" instead of "which you may be translated as follows"
