The Tolkien Road

A podcast about Middle-earth and all things Tolkien.

0045 – The Silmarillion – Ch14 – Of Beleriand and Its Realms

Concerning “Of Beleriand and Its Realms,” Chapter 14 of The Silmarillion

On this episode, we continue our discussion of The Silmarillion with Chapter 14, “Of Beleriand and Its Realms.” In Chapter 14, we get a detailed run down of the geographical layout of Beleriand. It’s not the most exciting chapter, but hey, that never stopped us from going on and on about something.

Topics of discussion include:

  • Tolkien’s Gift for Descriptive Landscapes
  • But why put this chapter here? Things were just getting exciting!
  • The Map = The Key…kind of.
  • Beleriand’s Boundaries
  • Key Realms
  • Key Cities —> Read About Nargothrond
  • And more!
