short answers to questions that deserve more athn what I have given [In reply to] Can't Post

1. Why donít people travel from the Lonely Isle to Aman? And how come the Teleri never travel back to the Lonely Isle once they have ships?

Why go back when it had taken you this long, and besides there is nothing hunting you on your island or the other shore.

2. Would you like to visit Alqualonde, based on this description? Would Tolkien have made a good travel writer?

I would love to go there, only preferably after the sun was put in the sky. I can only handle twilight for so long. (That has no reference to the Vampire books, I canít stand them at all.)
Tolkienís descriptions always work quite well for me. He has beautiful descriptions of landscapes. His pictures really are worth a thousand words.

3. Why are swans so often referenced in Tolkien?
Like the other poster said, most likely Beowulf.

4. What exactly is living rock?
Iím gonna go for rock that is more than the rock you simply pull out of the ground. More like the rocks whose veins run far down into the depths of the earth. Unquarried stone that is carved as it is.

5. Will the Teleri ever be happy?
Probably not completely, not many elves are by our standards. Itís kind of the way they are what with the burden of immortality and all.

6. What new things do we learn about the Noldor here? And why of all the sons of Feanor does Tolkien choose to tell us more about Celegorm here?
We learn of their connection to Aule. Interesting bit here since Sauron was also a teacher of Aule. Could be that his teaching has some unforeseen consequences to it. Not to mention the connection to the dwarves as well. As far as Celegorm, not sure, perhaps it is to give us the sense of his ability as a hunter for when he returns to Beleriand.
