The Blue Book of Bilbo Baggins, or, Tales of the Forbidden Silmarillion

Maeve Riannon - 26 Feb 07 - 11:31 PM

Ch. 6: The Great Mother

A very worthy end!

You have given poignancy to the mostly boring babblings and arguments of experts on the Mediterranean Great Mother. But the touch of evemerism in the end is a bit too blasphemous. Not that I am going to complain. ;)

One little thing that made me "euh?" was how the women are called Women and then the men are called Men. It´s the fault of English that the word "woman" comes from "man" and not the other way round, so the effect is a bit curious. I imagine it´s a translation from an Elvish text, and yet this is one of the very few ocassions where I could use an Elvish word. :)

This story has definitely grown much since it started, and this does not mean I´m complaining about the beginning. Your ability to weave myths into seamless patterns has increased, both in delirious and in "reasonable" mode. ;)
