The Tolkien Road – Ep. 53 – The Silmarillion – Ch. 21 – Of Túrin Turambar – Pt1

Concerning “Túrin Turambar”, Chapter 21 of The Silmarillion…

Hey there fellow travelers! Welcome to The Tolkien Road, a long walk through the works and philosophy of J.R.R. Tolkien. On this episode, we begin discussing chapter 21 of The Silmarillion, “Of Túrin Turambar”. The tale of Túrin is a long one, so it’s definitely going to take more than one episode to cover. It’s also quite tragic and sad, so make sure you’ve got a box of tissues nearby. By the way, if you haven’t already, please leave The Tolkien Road a rating and feedback on iTunes. We’d love to know what you think of the podcast. Enjoy the show!
