Princes of Dol Amroth
February, 25 2006
Questions about the life and times of Imrahil and his family can be asked here, including questions about Ultimatums, Kin-Strife and the shorter stories. Discussions about Brand can go either here or in the Best-Loved Son thread, since his stories sort of overlap both cycles.
I thought I'd share one perspective on Brand's description of Hethlin... I was also a bit taken aback by it the first time I read "Confirmation." I asked my husband (who has taught 12 and 13-year-olds for over 15 years) what he thought. His response was that typically, at that age, a woman/girl is usually described as either ugly or pretty. Sometimes "OK" or "good-looking" get tossed around, and the truly exceptional might make it to "beautiful." But basically he agreed with your assessment - most boys don't have a very broad vocabulary yet! :)
