II: The Book of Lost Tales part 2, II: TURAMBAR AND THE FOALÓKË (2/2)

This is the second post on the tale of Túrin Turambar and Glorund the Dragon. The influences of legends and stories from the Nordic coutries are apparent. For comparison, look at the tale of Kullervo from the Kalevala (there is going to be a new Tolkien book on this august -2015) and the Völsunga saga (also see Tolkien's Legend of Sigurd and Gudrun).

II: The Book of Lost Tales part 2, I: THE TALE OF TINÚVIEL (1/2)

The chapter begins with a Link to the Tale of Tinúviel in which the current state of Eriol's stay is made clear and he tells shorter tales of where he comes from. The main lovestory about Tinúviel and Beren is told by Vëannë and since it features ~40 pages this post will be split in half. My commentary will be provided in the second post and this one contains half the plot and a few features to note.
