Tolkien's unpublished poem, "The Fall of Arthur," is about to see the light of day! The 200+ pages are about King Arthur, Mordred, Gawain, etc., based on the works of Sir Thomas Malory and Geoffrey of Monmouth. I hope they turn it into a movie! Okay, can you tell I love the Arthurian legends? That's one reason I chose to teach Brit lit. lol
I have loved Tokien since the 70's when I read the Trilogy but I hate to burst your bubble...the release doesn't take precedent over this election which is the most important in my lifetime. :-)
Too cute, Habee!
Lrc7815, you may or may not realize that Habee is speaking with tongue in cheek. You've probably seen all of the forum threads about the election that she has opened (or to which she has contributed) and you may or may not have had a chance to see that she is probably the fairest of all Hubbers in the political comments she has made.
It's nice to take a break from the worries of the campaigns to mention something else of interest. They sure had their own unique ways of settling political disputes back in the days of Arthur, didn't they?
But just true.
Maybe we should put all the candidates in chain mail and full armor, put them on horseback, and set them on each other.
No, let me backtrack on that. Too much is at stake, and I don't like the thought of how "dirty politics" might play out in that kind of scenario. I might like to see that for members of Congress, though. !
Funny you should mention that. I jokingly told a lib pal of mine we should just put the prez candidates and the VP candidates in a rubber room and let them "go at it." She agreed! lol
Now you're talking, habee. That is exciting.
Do you have a link to share?
I've been following the up and coming trilogy of The Hobbit. Peter Jackson couldn't do it in one or two movies. Part 1, The Hobbit: The Unexpected Journey releases Dec. 14,2012. I'm excited.
Oh, YAY! I can't wait until it is published. And I'm all for another Tolkien-inspired movie!
