What I feared... [In reply to] Can't Post


In Reply To
It was quite a mistake, I assure you! I had it newly washed, pressed, and hanging up when I completely forgot to grab it! Tragic, I know...

See, I would have said Earendil's tale, too, but there is precious little material actually written about him. The Necklace of the Dwarves and the Fall of Gondolin are at least both properly written out in full tales in BoLT, so narratives could be constructed using those sources. Earendil, though, was never written - there are just notes. So any narrative about him would have to be almost completely made up, or it would be remarkably shorter than the others. I think there's enough to make a slightly longer tale than what's published in The Silmarillion, but it wouldn't be much I don't think.

Oh, and I'm far from a scholar, but thanks for the compliment Smile




Well, you forgetting your kilt...but that's a different story! Tongue

I didn't know of much either, aside from the poem...(and I disagree here: I find you quite the HoME scholar!)... was hoping you knew of some more texts. I would love to have that tale expanded with more conversation, more character development. Would be great to see Earandil and Elwing 'talk', and hear more about the attack by the SoF (from their perspective too, highlighting who said what) and about Elrond and Elros being found in the cave. Its really the crown jewel of the tales to me, even more so than B and L (sorry there CG).

Coming soon!- The first TORn Amateur Symposium, starts Sunday 21st July in the Reading Room. Closing date for essay submission Sunday 14th July, but even if you don't submit, join us for some interesting discussion on some different and personal ways of looking at Tolkien's work.
