First LotR discussion

Ok, enough people are interested that it's definitely worth posting up here, rather than just nattering privately. So, I'm going to post my first analysis this coming Sunday. I'm just going to cover the Prologue to Lord of the Rings, found in the book "Fellowship of the Ring".

The prologue is short, and written in Tolkien's own voice, but it's rich in details and has some very telling hints and intimations in it. When announcing ahead of time which chunk I'm going to discuss, I'll use Tolkien's own delineations rather than those of any particular published edition - that way, whatever you've got laying around at home, you can use and still keep up.

I'll try and do a post a week, probably on Sundays - and tackle one "Book" per post. Maybe more or less, depending on the length and/or import of the book in question.

See you all on Sunday, by which time I hope to have a LotR-appropriate icon!
