Chapter VI: The Old Forest
Whether youre a first time Lord of the Rings reader or youve read it a dozen times, theres nothing like discussing the actual book chapter by chapter. Thats what were 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. Tolkiens creative mind gets cooking in chapter six to be sure!
