Somehow I've managed to miss all the previous relays. Don't know why, since
I love doing translations. In any case count me and amman iar in on this
one (not sure nathya is ready quite yet).
I agree with Dirk about the cultural biases that often lurk in poetry. A
bit of prose would be better, I think. As for Tolkien, well, I'm currently
on a Quenya linguistic binge and am in the process of reviewing my rather
extensive T. collection. I'm afraid I am all too likely to stumble upon the
selected passage no matter how obscure.
OT: I am in the process of Shoeboxing all that I discover about Quenya
morphosyntax and can already generate some rather impressive interlinear
translations. Any fellow Shoeboxers or Q enthusiasts interested?
