Can we revive this for real this time?
A (very) little background--I am brand new to this forum, directed here from a link in another forum, but have had the Tolkien books as some of my dearest treasures for -- eek, I hate to say it -- 40 years. The link I followed was directly to the Virtual Tolkien Study Group, and I was amazed at the level of discussion. As well as I thought I knew Middle Earth, I found many insights in the posts. So I was disappointed to see it break off after Chapter 3 of The Two Towers. In restarting it, I would try to use the same format, with a new post for each chapter containing a summary and a few questions. I have written up potential posts for most of the rest of TTT already, and would start by posting Chapter 4. The previous posters were doing a chapter a month, but I'm thinking of a chapter every 2 weeks.
If you haven't already looked at the earlier posts, I would recommend doing that to get an idea of how it works. I will put up my TTT Chapter 4 summary later today. I am no more of an expert on the books than anyone else, and definitely less so than those who've read the History and the Letters et al., so I don't think of this as teacher/student but as a round-table discussion.
