Túrin and the curse [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't know that I can agree. There may be a few instances (such as the incest, Finduilas's death, and Beleg's death) that are a result of the curse, but a lot of it I can't just attribute to the curse. He's a jerk a lot of the time, and haughty and proud most of the rest. Of course, you could say those characteristics are a result of the curse, but I don't think I'd buy it. For one thing, his mother is the exact same way, even before the curse (well, she's at least haughty and proud if somewhat less jerkish).

I think his story is tragic, but its all the more tragic because he brought much of it upon himself.

Either way you slice it, though, it's one of my favorite books.

"...not till now have I understood the tale of your people and their fall.
As wicked fools I scorned them, but I pity them at last.
For if this is indeed, as the Eldar say, the gift of the One to Men,
it is bitter to receive." -Arwen Undómiel
