In which Dr. Corey Olsen discusses Part Three, Chapters 1-2 of JRR Tolkien’s Unfinished Tales.
In this class we will look at two Third-Age icons: Isildur and Eorl the Young. Read the first two chapters of Part Three of Unfinished Tales.
This class was, alas, beset with technical difficulties, which prevented the use of the video feed and caused some audio problems for the students attending live. We did, however, get to do a careful look at Isildur’s depiction in the Silmarillion and The Lord of the Rings, so we could make concrete comparisons with Tolkien’s treatment of Isildur and his fall in this later story. Eorl the Young, however, needed to be pushed off to the bonus class session the next day.
