Um, not quite. Hurin and Turin were men, not Elves, at least according to The Silmarillion.
Speaking of which, has anyone who has read the Silmarillion also read The Children of Hurin or Beren and Luthian? Are they the same stories with more detail? Do they change the basic stories told in the Silmarillion?
I never got through the poem of Beren and Luthian, I am not a poem guy, but from the bits I have read, it seemed to have the same relationship to the Silmarillion as the Children of Hurin.
Also, I am unclear if this is a "new" version of the Fall of Gondolin or just a new printing of the old one. Anyone found a more detailed source?
I have to say I was disappointed in the Children of Hurin as it was once again repeating the same story with slight variations. After that I skipped the Beren and Luthien and will skip the new one as well. But my view may be distorted by the HoME series as they were full of different versions of the same stories.
