Publication history[ edit ] Homeschooled by his parents, Christopher Paolini graduated from high school at the age of fifteen, but felt he was not yet mature enough for college, so he wrote Eragon in his spare time.
Background[ edit ] Origins and publication[ edit ] Christopher Paolini started reading fantasy books when he was 10 years old.
At the age of 14, as a hobby, he started writing the first novel in a series of four books, but he could not get beyond a few pages because he had "no idea" where he was going.
He began reading everything he could about the "art of writing", and then plotted the whole Inheritance Cycle book series.
After a month of planning out the series, he started writing the draft of Eragon by hand. It was finished a year later, and Paolini began writing the "real" version of the book. They immediately saw its potential and decided to publish the book through their small, home-based publishing company, Paolini International.
He also drew the maps inside the book. He gave over talks at bookshops, libraries, and schools, many with Paolini dressed up in a medieval costume; but the book did not receive much attention. I couldn't have gone on for very much longer.
While there, Hiaasen's stepson bought a copy of Eragon that he "immediately loved". Michelle Frey, executive editor at Knopf, contacted Paolini and his family to ask if they were interested in having Knopf publish Eragon.
The answer was yes, and after another round of editing, Knopf published Eragon in Augustwith a new cover, drawn by John Jude Palencar. Paolini received much inspiration from old epic poems.
Paolini cites old mythsfolk talesmedieval stories, the epic poem Beowulfand authors J. FeistMervyn PeakeUrsula K. I found that it gave the world a much richer feel, a much older feel, using these words that had been around for centuries and centuries. I had a lot of fun with that.
He thought the name fit the book perfectly, but some of the other names caused him "real headaches". Paolini "roughed out" the main history of the land before he wrote the book, but he did not draw a map of it until it became important to see where Eragon was traveling.
He then started to get history and plot ideas from seeing the landscape depicted. He thought Eragon's growth and maturation throughout the book "sort of mirrored my own growing abilities as a writer and as a person, too. So it was a very personal choice for that book.
I went with a more human element with Saphira while still trying to get a bit of the magic, the alien, of her race. She transcended that, however, and became her own person, fiercely independent and proud.
