|And the dream is now shared, and Boromir has determined to take the quest for his own. Alas that he will see his brother no more once he has gone north.|

|I think it is a blessing that the palantir does not show Denethor his sons. He would probably have lost his grip if he saw Faramir and thought him to be dead.|
Boromir is not only stubborn; he is also prideful. Had he been carrying Faramir, they both would have fallen and probably sustained injuries. Then there was the withdrawal of the enemy. Not knowing why would scare anyone.
Faramir has a good dose of pride himself. Iím sure his men would not see him as being weak; rather as someone who is willing to go into dangerous territory with them regardless of the results.
Boy, am I glad I donít remember many of my dreams. Thankfully, none are nightmares.
Author Reply: I think you are right, Tari. I haven't found any other reason for Denethor not 'seeing' Boromir under attack at Amon Hen.... Of all people, he would have followed the progress of his son with passion....
I must not have written it well - if you thought Faramir was proud at not wanting the men to see him weak... it was because his men had endured so much horror during the battle... and so weakened themselves in confidence... that he didn't want anything else to 'injure' them - like seeing their beloved captain perhaps injured or ill.... nothing to do with pride.
Thanks for reading and reviewing - most appreciated.
