1. The Love of Learning — Jay of Lasgalen
The Love Of Learning
by Jay of Lasgalen
"No, but you see, El – this is important," Elrohir explained passionately, waving a scroll under his brother's nose. "The Amorata is one of the most beautiful love poems ever written, but there is so much debate over it! We know nothing of the poet, nor the woman he wrote about. Who was she? Was she real … perhaps his wife, or even an idealised fantasy; a figment of his imagination? If I can read it in the original Haradric, perhaps there will be some clue!"
Elladan listened to all this in silence. "But El," he asked at last. "Who cares?"
