Where to now?

A prominent Tolkien expert wrote to me last night and expressed an interest in the first two parts of my Tolkien essay but said he didn't quite know where I was going with them. In all honesty, I don't know myself. I think I've said enough about The Music of the Ainur; we've covered moral contingency and the many liturgical aspects of it; would any of my faithful readers care to make any suggestions?


  1. Speak to us of how men are corrupted, of the origin of the nine, and of loose ends concerning Angmar, the men to the east at Rhun, and the men of the south.

  2. (Oh, I just realised you didn't mean generally, but rather in relation to your essay. I'm not sure.)
