The Tolkien Road

A podcast about Middle-earth and all things Tolkien.

0050 – The Silmarillion – Ch19 – Of Beren and Lúthien – Pt 1

Concerning “Of Beren and Lúthien”, Chapter 19 of The Silmarillion

Hey there fellow travelers! Welcome to The Tolkien Road, a long walk through the works and philosophy of J.R.R. Tolkien.  It’s our 50th episode! And it also just so happens to be the episode where we discuss Chapter 19 of The Silmarillion, “Of Beren and Lúthien.” It’s an amazing chapter, an epic tale all by itself, so epic that we weren’t able to cram it all in to one episode. So this is part 1, with part 2 to follow next time. If you haven’t read the story before, we hope you’ll be inspired to do so by our conversation. Thanks for listening, and enjoy the show!
