The Hall of Fire continues discussing Tolkien’s Fellowship of the Ring on April 28 & 29

April 22, 2001 at 2:42 pm by Tookish  - 

Chapter VI: The Old Forest

Whether you’re a first time Lord of the Rings reader or you’ve read it a dozen times, there’s nothing like discussing the actual book chapter by chapter. That’s what we’re doing in The Hall of Fire, and you are invited to join us for our next installment on April 28 & 29.

The Old Forest is a particularly good chapter. Frodo, Sam, Pippin and Merry leave Crickhollow and head into one part of what is left of Middle-earth’s ancient forest. Inhabited by the likes of soured Old Man Willow and unflappable Tom Bombadil, the Old Forest stands out as the hobbit’s first face to face encounter with death. Tolkien’s creative mind gets cooking in chapter six to be sure!
