The Great Years Calendar: The Council of Elrond

We have special entries for The Great Years Calendar during the month of November. Be sure to visit the Calendar often. :wink: :D

Image


October 25 is undoubtedly the single most important date in the early annals of the War of the Ring. This is the day that the Free Peoples of Middle-earth make a decision that will shape their future for all time. Differing ideas are debated; sobering accounts of the history of Middle-earth are told; mysteries are unraveled, and both fears and hopes are kindled. The reader is given more insight and history and motive in this one incredible chapter than anywhere else in Tolkien's epic tale.

Needless to say, one short Tolkien Calendar post cannot begin to express the significance of the Council, and so we will talk about it in installments. You will want to check in with the Calendar in the weeks to come and learn about the Council of Elrond from 4 different perspectives.

11-1-05: The Council of Elrond: The Players. Who were the key players in the Council? Why were they key players? What role did they play throughout the Council?

11-8-05: The Council of Elrond: Middle-earth History. What were the historical events that took place in Middle-earth and were discussed at the Council? What key historical events shaped the Council and it's results?

11-15-05: The Council of Elrond: The Decisions and Implications. What did the Council decide to do? What did they consider and throw out and why? What was the significance to the rest of the story.

11-22-05: The Council of Elrond: Tolkien's Literary History. How did Tolkien arrive at his final draft for the Council? What other versions did he consider and disgard and why? What was the literary significance of the final draft?

Join us for these fascinating Calendar posts in November.

We're having trouble with the board e-mail after the upgrade, so I'm backporting to the old version a bit to see where the problem lies. So, there might be some weird error messages during the next couple of hours. :roll:

OK, the testing is done, so please report any other errors from now on.

After some testing, I can say that the e-mail problem also occurs with the old board software version. So, the error message has nothing to do with the current upgrade, but rather with the server's e-mail function. We have contacted our webhost and hope they can resolve the matter soon :D

Just so everyone knows we are experiencing technical difficulties after our new version of PHP was installed. Our webserver host is working on the problem. We'll keep you abreast of the situation if it changes.

Even though you will recieved the warning about an e-mail being sent after you have posted...your post does go through as planned. The thread will be marked 'unread' although that is not true either.

It's all a bit crazy and we apologize for any frustrations it may cause you.

Artist in Profile


Image


Ted Nasmith


With so many wonderful Tolkien artists out there each with their own unique visions of Middle Earth for us to enjoy, I’m starting a new occasional series Artist in Profile where I will be featuring each artist and their work and posting some of their art for us to look at and discuss. Since we are already talking about Ted Nasmith on the Art and Artists thread his luminous and epic paintings are a very good place to for us to start.

Come and join us and take a fresh look at Middle-earth! :D
