Episode 102: Dr. Verlyn Flieger, Part 2

In this second part of the interview with Dr. Flieger, we discuss many of her essays. We use “The Body in Question: the Unhealed Wounds of Frodo Baggins” as a vehicle for discussing Raiken. We talk about Numenor in “Drowned Lands” and whether it is possible for sailors to find Meneltarma after the breaking of the world. And we use “The Curious Incident of the Dream at the Barrow: Memory and Reincarnation in Middle Earth” as a means to talk about the Olórë Mallë (Path of Dreams). We end the conversation with a discussion of the Dagor Dagorath.
