Hear Tolkien speak!
Bruce wrote in to say: “This may be old news, but the mp3lit site has a Tolkien freebie at MP3Lit.com.
There are two passages. The first is the familiar selection of Tolkien reading the “cooking conies” passage from The Two Towers. The second is new to me, but perhaps it’s old news to others. Tolkien is recorded reciting the poem that is Galadriel’s farewell song to the Fellowship as they leave Lorien.”
This is really worth following up if you’ve never heard Tolkien read his own work before. Though my personal fave is him reading the ‘Ride of the Rohirrim’ bits….Posted in Old Main News on August 22, 2000 by Tehanu
