Concerning “Of Men”, Chapter 12 of The Silmarillion…

On this episode, we continue our discussion of The Silmarillion with Chapter 12, “Of Men”. In this short chapter, we learn a bit about the early history of Men in Tolkien’s secondary world and how they relate to the Elves and the Valar.  Topics of discussion include:

  • The Years of the Sun
  • The Names of Men
  • The Works of Ulmo
  • Of Elves and Men
  • The Fate of Men
  • The Great Men
  • And as always, we discuss our favorite passages and the haiku we composed for this chapter.
