Eriol of 'The Lost Tales'
Justin B.

I don't quite understand something about Eriol in The Lost Tales. The lost tales seem clearly to take place after the War of Wrath. At this time men were still not able to set foot on The Lonely Isle or in Aman. The thing that doesn't make sense is that Eriol is a man and he is somehow able to land on The Lonely Isle and speak with the elves. Maybe I missed something in the foreword, but I would still like to know how he is able to go to the island.
