Some "aha" moments Bruinen [In reply to] Can't Post

Indeed, with the Turin chapter and the seeking of clarity in regards to Anglachel this is quite timely material!

The parallel between Anglachel and Tyrfing is very interesting. Cursed Tyrfing cannot be sheathed unless blood is drawn...is that why Anglachel is so pleased to war - then it can sleep? And the utterly puzzling question: the cutting of Turin's foot leading to the death of Beleg. Is it a similar curse, and the taste of blood was needed for Anglachel to rest - and that little taste having unintended consequences, for which the sword itself grieves? Here not so much a 'curse' perhaps in the literal sense, unlike Tyrfing, but the shade of Eol in Anglachel.

(The riddles of course - and the wandering Gestumblindi/Odin as the master riddler.) I shall read ahead more, and will mention this sword parallel too in the chapter discussion.

Thanks Bruinen!
