Title: Guilin of Nargothrond

Another great gathering together of separate bits into an obscure, but wholly tragic, thread in the Silm! Thank you for researching and writing!

Also, that snippet at the top from "Lays of Beleriand" reminded me that Tolkien could (apparently) just crank out the alliterative verse, which I, at least, find so difficult!



Author's Response:

Thanks so very much for reading this and leaving me a comment. I had a lot of fun reading the different versions. The hardest for me to work with were the parts in the Lays of Beleriand, because of my copy being a mass market paperback! So hard to read even with my nose pressed against the page. I am tempted to try to mimic it at times and then remember that it isn't easy!

 

So sad! No one deserves the punishment that Guilin receives in The Silmarillion--talk about unnumbered tears!

Title: Guilin of Nargothrond

Very interesting piece about the character of whom we know that he existed because he was someboy else's father. And yet, Guilin and his family are symbols of the tragedy that the Noldor experienced in the First Age. Great job!

Author's Response:

Thanks so much for commenting, Robinka! Poor Guilin, barely mentioned and yet still such a tragic figure.
