Círdan's beard seems to be a special case among the Elves. The possible reasons for its existence notwithstanding, perhaps it was a relatively recent adornment for him (ie, post Second Age or so)....

I found myself rather unhappy with the early versions of the story, as least as far as Tuor's coming to Gondolin is concerned, and much prefer the 1951 rewrite. Maybe that's due to the fact that that...

I beg to differ! More Entishness is what we need. Too many treeish Huorns! ;)

To exposit and add, having central a/c break down again, and fully sympathizing with Gollum's loathing and fear of the Yellow Face.

Well, Dain never saw it, nor learned the fate of Balin's expedition: he was slain at Erebor before the War's end. I think the book was preserved for his people, though. Gimli would have done all in...

This is one of my favorite chapters.

Even before Frodo leaves Rivendell, there's a seeming portent he notes (due to his near-wraith-turn?).



"in the South", the very direction he must go!...

Ah, yes. Tinuviel there has always been enhanced in feeling due to (as was the intent) the connection with Aragon. Reading the book through again with knowledge of Arwen, and what the War of the Ring...

I wonder why, before their deaths, the hobbits had to be clothed in white. And how did Frodo escape that?

For the first question, was it a deliberate mockery on the part of the Wight; a sacrifice...

Obviously, the imprisonment in the Barrow couldn't have lasted very long; just enough time to strip all of hobbits, except Frodo, and reclothe them in white.
