Doesn't Aragorn or Sam chant a poem about Eärendil in LOTR?
Yes, but we have enough quotes already. -Smack 04:56, 11 Oct 2003 (UTC)
It was Bilbo. And it's a really short poem! Only about 3 or 4 pages long... Carcharoth 00:54, 22 October 2006 (UTC)
I understand that the poem in LotR is only a first draft, and that a longer, more polished and complete version exists which was never published. Does anyone know about this? 126.96.36.199 (talk) 22:02, 4 October 2009 (UTC)
"First draft" isn't really accurate; the published poem is quite developed and was in fact the twelfth version, not counting the earlier "Errantry" versions. However there was indeed a further development of the poem after the twelfth version, in three more versions. Apparently the last version, intended to be published, was mislaid and the earlier version was published instead. The final version can be read in The Treason of Isengard.
