Talk:The Silmarillion

Most of the chapter synopses have yet to be done. That's a lot of work and a long road to travel.--Theoden1 07:19, 18 July 2008 (EDT)

I might be able to help, how long should they be?Ælfwine228 10:22, 18 July 2008 (EDT)
I would say each synopsis should be about a page of text, 3-4 paragraphs. The idea is to provide a summary of each chapter.--Theoden1 11:37, 18 July 2008 (EDT)
The best examples are The Children of Húrin chapters, e.g. The Childhood of Túrin, as they provide not only a synopsis but an analysis of the text. --Hyarion 14:30, 18 July 2008 (EDT)
