    Tricks for Studying Silmarillion Names

    I have a friend with less background in Middle Earth than I who asked for help studying Silmarillion characters and family trees.(for a Fantasy Lit class) That being half of what I have spent my life doing, I of course agreed. Just curious if anyone has any tips and tricks or hard things to...

    Literary Significance of Crossing Boundries

    Maybe I missed it in class last week, or perhaps this question regards a topic too trivial or obvious, but I figured I would ask anyway just on the off-chance it is an interesting thing to discuss. To what extent is Frodo, by crossing the Ford, reaching safety, and to what extent is he crossing...
