Title: Sauron

Thank you Marta for your nuanced essay on Sauron's character.  He is certainly a Lucifer type character and one harkening to the ancient Greek notion of hubris with his desire for power and control causing his tragic fall.  I particularly appreciated your analysis of his change while in Ost-in-Edhil, the idea that collaborating with Celebrimbor as a craftsman appealed to one side of his character but that ultimately, when challenged, the other side would win out.
