    Help with a sentence

    hi,

    I don't get the first (red) part of the sentence at all:

    いつ終るともしれぬ混沌のなかで一人の若者が旅にでる。


    thx

    Re: Help with a sentence

    The entire sentence is something along the lines of "In the midst of [a period of?] chaos to which none can see an end, a single young man will embark upon a journey."

    いつ and 終わる mean "when" and "to end" respectively.
    *れぬ verb conjugations mean "unable to", similar to *られない, so しれぬ (知れぬ) would mean "unable to know/discern/see", and とも is used to link the two together with the impression of certainty.
