If you’re not already familiar with Kate from Kate of Mind – shame on you. I’ve only been linking to her for months, what is your problem? I honestly don’t know what else to say in means of an introduction, other than that she’s censored herself quite a bit just to make sure her post wasn’t overly long. Aw, she knows that most of you have short attention spans! See how she pays attention? Anyway, in order to keep this post on the shorter side, she’s elected to take a different tack and focus on one specific section. You’ll see what I mean.
Chapter Six of Book V (Return of the King) contains what is for me the single most dramatic and emblematic moment in all of J.R.R. Tolkien’s work: the death of Theoden and the triumph of Eowyn and Merry.
