Thank you! [In reply to] Can't Post

Noad, however, speculates that Kay had a greater influence on the creation of the text overall than is commonly known, or acknowledged by Christopher.

In a way, your own books supports Noad's speculation - by proving him wrong! I remember your citing Noad as making the claim that the late Quenta was by far the main source of the published Silmarillion, and arguing that on the contrary, your analysis showed that The Annals of Aman and The Grey Annals were as important a source, if not more important.
According to what you've written, such an eclectic construction of the book clearly fits more with the approach Kay suggested, rather than the one Christopher begun with (and from various comments scatterred throughout HoME, seems to have second thoughts about abandoning) - supporting Noad's own thesis.





Aside: as you see, your book has given me much food of thought, for which I haven't thanked you yet; I do so now, apologising for the delay.
