Hethlin of Anorien
February, 25 2006
I know CMC's a done deal, but since I intend to give it a thorough editing in the future, I'll include it in this thread, as well as make this a place for any other Heth questions not appropriate for the Silver Swan thread.
Somehow it struck me that the in-keeper already thought of Hethlin as odd, at one point they describe her as running around in those raggedy breaches with narry a dress to your name, or somthing like that I don't know the exact quote. But anyway compared to that perhaps reading and writing isn't that unusual, and the in-keeper would have been able to read and write so perhaps it never struck him as strange anyway.
And among the rangers it was probably no issue, some of them could read, some of them couldn't it didn't stop them being good soldiers, Heth makes a comment to Imrahil at one point that you don't need anything like the level of education a swan knight needs to be a captain in the rangers, they're good at other stuff, anything written down could have been found by they enemy and given them away so they probably didn't write much stuff down anyway.
I often wondered if sending Faramir to Henneth-Annun was a kind of punnishment to his scholarly son from Denethor, he and Heth are probably close because she can read, and so they can discuss books, it must have been torture for him to be kept away from the library
