Minor corrections [In reply to] Can't Post


In Reply To
Gandalf's fears about Smaug being utilsed by The Necromancer, and him noticing the change in Bilbo's character are again taken from Unfinsihed Tales.



Gandalf's fears about Smaug are touched upon in LotR, Appendix A.


Quote

Gandalf noting that the trolls were moving down from the mountains and his feelings of increasing evl on the move seem to be inspired by the strange rumours and troubling tales the hobbits increasingily hear during Frodo's thirties in the beggining of the FOTR book.



Gandalf was told about the trolls in The Hobbit by the pair of Rivendell folk that he met on the road. "As I was saying I met two of Elrond's people. They were hurrying along for fear of the trolls. It was they who told me that three of them had come down from the mountains and settled in the woods not far from the road..."

                            The 2 Chapters from the 1960's rewrite is defintitely worth reading (The History of The Hobbit is more than equal to the HOME)... malickfan Send a private message to malickfan May 18 2013, 7:28pm

                        I swear just as much of the additional materil was actually taken from sources other than the appendices. malickfan Send a private message to malickfan May 18 2013, 7:57pm
