Thread: Turin Turambar! (a tale of brutally honest ironies)
Grondmaster moved this thread and its replies from The Silmarillion. There is also Turin son of Hurin found on page two of Characters.

At last someone interested in Turin - by far my favourite story of all Tolkien world.
Yes Oedipus Rex has certainly much in common with him... but also Siegmund from "The Niebelungen" and his love to his sister Sieglind... And Kullervo son of Kalervo (did I spell it well?) from the Finnish "Kalevala"...
btw, have you checked in to the Writer's Guild yet? or the Members thread in one of the taverns? PT has lots of groovy features for members including things like news, fan fiction, and private postBodys. You might like to check them out.
by the way Grond i like your quote, those are great books and douglas adams' death recently is a damn shame
Well, if this thread is suppose to be about the ironies of Turin, lets talk about them. There are quite a few out there. Courtman14 this is YOUR thread, so I'll let you get the ball rolling so to speak.
