18271Re: Why Bloom ... Legolas (opinion) / Elrond, Galadriel
- Sep 2, 2007No doubt Elrond is one of the most interesting characters. Maybe
because his part in the story is mostly done, already.
I mean, one things that made me be at awe when I read The
Silmarillion was to see characters like Elrond, and Galadriel,
people that appear in The L ot R, ages after, back there, living the
exciting part of their lives.
In the Third Age, it seems that, to Elrond, things, in a way, make
no more so much difference, for he longs for his trip to the west
more eagerly than for the wars against the maia ... And Melkor is
Galadriel seems, to me, more attached to her realm than Elrond to
his. Do you agree?
