A Question of History

General Comment

Middle-earth and the many voices in which JRRT tells its tales do rather lend themselves to debates about "the nature of history".  I don't think I've ever read that particular Letter, and if I did I skimmed over it, so I'd not ever put it together with what Frodo says in that chapter. So I enjoyed both the nature of the debate here, and the (very Tolkienish!) casting of it as a discussion between characters, all of whom were convincingly IC. Smile
