@Daisey @BookwormAHN @wordslinger42 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa

Hey, gals! Raggi g e everyone, just to keep in touch 😁

I've had this ready for days and I keep forgetting to post.
I haven't Vought up to this (admittedly very loose) schedule, but I'm on my way.

I'm really enjoying the letters. Such a precious look into the life and thought of a remarkable man.

How's everyone faring? 😁

BookwormAHN I wish more authors had this sort of book. I think it would be fascinating. 3d
Daisey I continue to find it a fascinating look at his life and work. It‘s so interesting to actually hear his own perspective on so many aspects. I‘m ready for Letter 228 when I pick it up again. 3d

This letter made me laugh today; first of all just because of Tolkien‘s comments, but especially because this is my cat Gandalf who I have always assumed has at least a bit of Siamese in him. 🤣

Twainy Cute 🐈 1mo
JazzFeathers 😂😂😂😂 Shame, though, that Tolkien wasn't a cat person. 2w

Daisey @jewright It hasn‘t been getting rave reviews from our group either, but I‘m giving it a try this week. 4w

From Letter 213
I think we often over analyze author‘s lives and writing to find more than the author intended, so I find this comment about no person truly knowing the relationship between writer and writing very appropriate.

jimfields3 As someone who loves context this passage is a challenge. But it also makes a lot of sense. Thanks for posting! 1mo
Daisey @jimfields3 I completely understand about context. To add a bit, this is from a letter in response to a request for more information about his personal life. He discussed his dislike of some of these requests, how he felt some “insignificant” details were more important to his writing than what was often requested, and also went on to give some personal details he felt relevant. 1mo
JazzFeathers I've always found it hard to accept Tolkien position in this, though l can also see his position. I think that an author's life is undetatchable from their life, because everything an author puts in their stories come from their life experience. But l can also see what Tolkien means by 'insignificant details'. It's a complex matter, l suppose. 2w
