Unfinished Tales, Session 8 - Bonus Q & A Session

In which Dr. Corey Olsen holds a bonus Q&A session discussing JRR Tolkien’s Unfinished Tales.

We begin the class considering the difference between legend and story, returning briefly to the Isildur story for an illustration, and then we turn to a discussion of Eorl the Young, paying particular attention to the nature of his oath and why it didn’t come back to haunt him, as so many oaths in Tolkien’s world seem to do.
