Dan’s Big Thought is a little TOO controversial… a Disney princess!? And of course we meet the Dark Elf, Eöl — even though, as we find out, his name is not the first time Tolkien uses the capital “D” Dark Elf moniker!
Join Jonathan, Michael, and Dan in this discussion of Chapter 16, Of Maeglin. We talk about Rohan on steroids, a philologist’s greatest punishment, and why Michael has to eat crow.
