SCOD: Éomer and Aragorn conversing Can't Post



[thanks to Harold of Whoa for this inspiration]
In the book, Aragorn's approach to conversing with Éomer is rather more extravagant, lengthier and more dominating in nature:

eg.) 'Aragorn threw back his cloak. The elven-sheath glittered as he grasped it, and the bright blade of Andúril shone... "I am Aragorn son of Arathorn, and am called Elessar, the Elfstone, Dúnadan, heir of Isildur... Will you aid me or thwart me? Choose swiftly!"'

The lines kept were that in bold (Aragorn) and underlined (Éomer).

1. If you've read the book scene, compare the film scene with that in the book. What changes do you notice, are they understandable alterations? What are your feelings on both?

2. How would you describe Aragorn and Éomer's behaviour in the film scene? (book readers) Compare this to book characters.

3. This is the first proper look we get at the Rohirrim. What do you think of them?

4. Extra stuff?


Thanks!
