Did The Children of Hurin influence Aragorn's decision to rescue Merry and Pippin? Can't Post

So Aragorn has probably heard the tale of the Children of Hurin, including Turin's disastrous decision to leave Finduilas to her fate. Is it possible that it factored in Aragorn deciding to chase after the Uruk-hai to rescue Merry and Pippin rather than accompany Frodo and Sam?

I always follow my job through.

My guess is no. I think it was both from a duty and rational decision action. [In reply to] Can't Post

He knew Frodo and Sam were on their own and had to try and help Merry and Pippin.

Agreed [In reply to] Can't Post

Aragorn's decision was eminently rational. No need to psychoanalyze it.
