Elen sila lumenn' omentielvo
Welcome! The posts on this blog were written by the students in Prof. Rachel Fulton Brown's "Tolkien: Medieval and Modern" at the University of Chicago in Spring 2011, Spring 2014, and Spring 2017. The posts were assigned as reflections on the discussions that we had over the course of each quarter in class, but the posts themselves regularly took on a depth and rigor far beyond that which we had been able to explore in class. The assigned readings for our discussions are listed in the syllabi on the page tabs for each year; the blog posts themselves are labeled according to the theme of the discussion in response to which they were written. We hope very much that you will enjoy reading our reflections.
