But he did say much on his own account. Things were far from well, he would say. Business was not even fair, it was downright bad. ‘No one comes nigh Bree now from Outside,’ he said. ‘And the inside folks, they stay at home mostly and keep their doors barred. It all comes […]

Rc – Tolkien – LotR – Set out fair and square

Por |septiembre 8th, 2016|

The genealogical trees

at the end of

the Red Book of Westmarch are

a small book in themselves,

and all but Hobbits

would find them

exceedingly dull.

Hobbits delighted in such things,

if they were accurate:

they liked to have books filled

with things that they already knew,

set out fair and square

with no contradictions.

Rc – Tolkien – LotR – No living man may hinder me! – [SPOILER WARNING]

No living man may hinder me!’

Éomund’s daughter.
You stand between me
and my lord and kin.
Begone, if you be not deathless!

For living […]

‘Well now, what about a smoke, while you tell us what has been happening in the Shire?’ he said.

‘There isn’t no pipe-weed now,’ said Hob; ‘at least only for the Chief’s men. All the stocks seem to have gone. We do hear that waggon-loads of it went away down the old […]

‘Well, what did you discover?’ growled the voice of Uglúk.

‘Yet,’ said Denethor, ‘we should not lightly abandon the outer defences, the Rammas made with so great a labour. And the Enemy must pay dearly for the crossing of the River.

They did not have to wait long.
The orcs were going at a great pace.
Those in the foremost files bore torches.
On they came,
red flames in the dark,

Por |agosto 23rd, 2016|

Over the city of Gondor doubt and great dread had hung. Fair weather and clear sun had seemed but a mockery to men whose days held little hope, and who looked each morning for news of doom. Their lord was dead and burned, dead lay the King of Rohan in their citadel, and the new king that had come to them in the night was gone again to a war with powers too dark and terrible for any might or valour to conquer. And no news came. After the host left Morgul Vale and took the northward road beneath the shadow of the mountains no messenger had returned nor any rumour of what was passing in the brooding East.
