Letter #131 Discussion, starting Tuesday, September 24th Can't Post

Greetings, dear RR Fellowship!

Just a heads up that we will be discussing that most revealing letter of JRRT's beginning Tuesday the 24th - I am switching out the start day to Tuesday as my work week keeps me from posting on Sundays and Mondays, and I do hate to post and run! I will most likely continue that pattern for the four week stretch of the discussion.

We will take four weeks to cover the Letter - as CG points out its more like a treatise on the legendarium. I plan on discussing each Age weekly, plus general philosophy in one week as well.

So anyone who would like to join in (and we would love to see you!) - this gives you some time to get a hold of this wonderful piece of Tolkien's writing.

"The Letters of JRR Tolkien", edited by Carpenter, is available as a volume, and Amazon has a very competitive price for the book.

Cool I am looking forward to discussing it with you all!

Is there a Tolkien topic that you have wanted to look into more deeply, and write about your thoughts on it? If so, we'd like to hear from you for the next TORn Amateur Symposium- coming in November. Happy writing!
