    The Immortality Paradox

    In the mythology of Tolkien there are two race of children of Iluvatar, the immortal Elves and mortal man. Each race, though kindred are endowed with slightly different natures.  And the greatest of the difference is the immortality of the elves and the mortality of men.  Each...

    I Wish There Were More

    Since I've read everything from the Silmarillion to the ring trilogy and the lost books, and Tolkien biographies, I've exhausted the cubboard. I so wish there were more material.  What shocked me the most was to find tall elves who were mighty warriors.  After all, elves are...

    The Council Of Elrond

    One of my favorite chapters of the Fellowship of The Ring book. It was only giving a three minute treatment in the movie and is an entirely different even than the one in the book.  But the book takes the time to give you the histories of the characters and the ring.  One of...

    The First Step of a Journey

    I can still remember my initial introduction to J. R. R. Tolkien's works.  As was the case with my development of interests in mythology, history, and fantasy, the catalyst was my older brother.  We were on a road trip, heading to Hilton Head Island so that my mother...

    Whole Worlds

    It's been a  while since I've read "Lord of the Rings", and now I'm revisiting "The Hobbit". I am amazed once again, how perfectlu created and detailed the world of Tolkien's books is. From the maps to the several languages, not to mention creatures. I still haven't read...

    I am always obsessed by Tolkien.

    I try to see any documentary, or join any discussion on his works. The fact that I believe his book are high literature, yet they popular. They are not just relegated to the halls of academia where a few old men pore over the words endlessly while no one else cares. Which is...

    Can't Help But Love His Work

    I've read all the Major works of Tolkin. His prose is so unbelievably beautiful it make reading a pleasure. The only thing better than reading Tolkin is rereading him. Usually, every summer I try to reread either one of the Lord of Rings books of the Silmerillions . I wasn't...

    Read The Books

    I'm one of those people who believe the Lord of the Rings books are far superior to the movies. Now I liked the movies and own them on DVD, and I accept the fact that they are different media and have to tell the stories in a different manner. After all, there a lot of time...
