in reply to The Doom of the Noldor

thanks for an excellent translation, Erudil. At first I thought the "until not" construction was the wrong logic, but looking again, you got it exactly, evocatively right, of course. Terribly sad in any language. So when do we get the whole tale of the ring translated? But looking at this, maybe poetry is more suited to programming than prose, and prophecy (predictive algorithms?) more than narrative?
