Thinking of Boromir's reaction to Elrond and the discussion we were having. To me the first reaction I had when considering his response in light of our considerations of Elrond's "until you stand once more on the boarders of your land, and dire need is on you" was to think of the many times in Malory we hear "I shall take the adventure that God will ordain me". During the discussion, we clearly saw that this is foreshadowing Boromir's death in book three. The extent that this is known to be foretelling to the characters at that time seems inconclusive at best, but we do know that any foretelling would by nature come from the Valar, or directly from Eru. It seems possible that if he hears it, he is accepting that fate and prepared to proceed in the only fashion he knows how. Am I reading back into this passage something that isn't there, or is there echo's of this idea in his speech. How would this reading affect the corresponding events of his death, and the preceding fall that he suffers and victory he subsequently wins?
