I'd have really liked to see this, actually. Include Hurin's attempt to enter Gondolin because not only does it poetically contrast the story's beginning (his stay there Huor), but, as you said,...

You guys have been talking about the "epilogue"...

Right now, I'm not quite sure how I feel about it. I do feel that it was vital to bring the story "full circle" by informing the audience of...

Heh, "the spell"...I know how you feel. I too haven't read LOTR for a few years (except the first few chapters of Fellowship several months ago), but the grandeur of the First Age tales move me in a...

Thanks for the tip! I'm not sure whether you got to check out the appendix or not, but Christopher Tolkien includes a few passages of Tolkien's poetry concerning...

Heh...thanks. :)



You bring up a good point, really. I won't try to defend the literary "elites" because I too believe that Tolkien is often held to a double standard. I would hope that...

Smaller in size. I actually haven't started reading yet (just the Preface and Introduction). But the book itself is slimmer and slightly shorter than I would have expected.

Just picked it up!

It'd be great to hear everybody's perspectives after they/we finish reading.

Initial pre-read impression:

Interesting question. There are a few reasons, I think, though my knowledge of Tolkien and his motivations is not nearly as thorough as some around here, so you might want to take this with a grain...

Well, thanks! I love Ted Nasmith's "Maglor Casts a Silmaril into The Sea"...makes for a great cover for the Sil too. But I do appreciate Turin as well, and I can see how you'd get that initial...

Hey, folks. I'm pretty new and have only made a handful of posts thus far, so I thought I'd chime in.

I love The Lord of the Rings (obviously), but I'm quite possibly a bigger fan of the The...

Very excited about this.

I'm wondering (though certainly not complaining) from whence came this wealth of material that comprises a narrative of, by my count, approximately 227 pages when the Narn...
