She and her husband Lindo tell the stories that would become the Silmarillion to the human mariner Ælfwine/Eriol.

Guillaume du Vair - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (390 words)
Guillaume du Vair (March 7, 1556 - August 3, 1621) was a French author and lawyer.
In 1595, Vair published his treatise De l'éloquence française et des raisons pour quoi elle est demeurée si basse, in which he criticizes the orators of his day, adding examples from the speeches of ancient orators, in translations which reproduce the spirit of the originals.
Du Vair had a great indirect influence on the development of style in French, for in the south of France he made the acquaintance of François de Malherbe, who conceived a great admiration for Du Vair's writings.
