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.
Nargil wrote: 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.
I think Merelan thought the whole family were a bit odd (what do you expect from foreigners?), but tolerated them because the Sunlanders have a respect for individuality and Halaran had certainly more than contributed his fair share to the community at large.
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.
Ah, but whether he was in the Rangers or the regular army, he still wasn't going to have access to the library. I do think Denethor insisted on military service, but I suspect that he left the choice of how to serve up to Faramir. Though he probably would have objected to Faramir becoming a Swannie....
