We return to our read-through of Fellowship of the Ring chapter discussions in The Hall of Fire this weekend to find the remaining members Fellowship faced with a difficult decision.
“Now is the time, when those who wish to continue the Quest must harden their hearts to leave this land. Those who no longer wish to go forward may remain here, for a while. But whether they stay or go, none can be sure of peace. For we are come now to the edge of doom.”
FoTR Book II Chapter VIII: Farwell to Lórien
The gifts of the Lady are given with generosity of spirit, yet her words are stern and foreboding. Still, where will the Fellowship go? Minas Tirith and Gondor? Mordor itself? The group is faced with an insoluble dilemma until Celeborn offers a solution that offers a temporary repreive.
As the Fellowship sets off down the Anduin, our suspicions linger, what is exactly going on inside the head of Boromir?
Join us tomorrow (Saturday, August 18) at 6.00pm ET (New York time), when we’ll discuss all this and much more as we continue our Fellowship of the Ring read-through!
Farewell to Lórien, by Ted Nasmith.
