Tolkien Week 18

Hello everyone! Welcome to my Corner!

I’ve finished The Hobbit! I just love the style and tone of that book. It’s definitely one of my favorites by Tolkien.

Speaking of finishing things, I had to write a story in the style of the ancient Greek historian Herodotus for a recent assignment. In his History, he chronicles the events leading up to the Persian War between the Greeks and Persians. Whenever Herodotus lists a nation that the Persians conquered, he goes on a “rabbit trail” and describes that nation’s customs. So I had to write a story in that style. I chose the Fall of Gondolin. I hope you all like it!

The Fall of Gondolin
