Tolkien’s creation of the culture of Rohan bears strong and obvious connections to the poem Beowulf. But could the Anglo-Saxon poem’s titular character fit into the world of Middle-earth?
Just a heads up on another contribution of mine to the wonderful people over at MiddleEarthNews.
This time, this article discusses an interesting connection between the Anglo-Saxon hero and the kings of Rohan.
Which reminds me: expect a review and an ‘Approaching Tolkien’ post on the recent publication of Beowulf: A Translation and Commentary.
Have you read it yet? 😉
In the meantime, check out the post here … Beowulf: The Lost King of Rohan.
I hope you enjoy it! 😀
