The Best-Loved Son cycle
February, 23 2006
Anything dealing with this cycle of stories can be discussed here: Andra and Boromir as a couple, the Denethor/Imrahil/Andrahar rivalry, the politics of Gondor in the last days of the Third Age.
I wonder how much of what Imrahil spelled out to Denethor about their different relationships with Faramir ended up helping tip Denethor over the edge when Faramir was brought back near death. Not that his despair needed much help, of course.
Very good question. Perhaps it's what moved him to try to immolate Faramir along with himself: "So, Imrahil, you think I don't love my youngest son? I love him so much that I won't let the Enemy get him!"
Ohhh. Just thought of a question I'd been wondering about a long time ago. Will post it in the Hethlin discussion since it pertains to CMC.
