I agree that Homer and Tolkien wrote within the same general genre; both wrote mythologies, though Homer's work apparently romanticized real life events (or at least some historiams believe). They...

Morthoron has headed in the right direction. Tolkien is not indecipherable, dull, depressing, dated, brutal or objectionable. And it is suitable and accessible to a wide age demographic.

Fine question Kuruharan and well met Gordis!

I will assume the construction of the Rammas to be after 2901 per your post, Gordis. The War of the Ring was 3019. By 3019, Minas Tirith was perhaps...

With respect to he Rammas, the use of walls as a means of defense was a traditional tactic throughout history. The distance between the Rammas and the city is very unusual, but the sheer size of the...

What book or story are you referring to, Nibinlondwen?

Aelfwine stood at the door of the Inn and slowly pushed it open. He had never visited the Green Dragon before. The man knew no one here and was very hungry. But alas he had no money for food.

You're a sweet Shire lass who isn't really cruel and wicked but you would kill Arwen?

I bet murdering someone would really make the heroes of Middle Earth respect you and love you.

Sting Can Orcs think for themselves?

I thought that if Orcs weren't working for a powerful master they were pretty much mindless. But in LoTR, the Orcs that captured Merry and Pippin included Orcs from Moria who were working on their...
