Description

In which Dr. Corey Olsen continues his examination of the fourth volume of the History of Middle-earth series with Chapter IV & V of The Shaping of Middle-earth. Discussion moves on to consider the Appendices of the Quenta, including a fascinating discussion of the list of Old English names for the Valar and others, which shows Tolkien's sensitivity to the sound and meaning of words. Also, in giving thought to the map of Arda and the description of the world in the Ambarkanta, we see how important for the development of the legendarium the maps and other artwork were, and how attention to them can enhance our understanding of Middle-earth.
