Quote: stopped being a Faerie-tale and started being an epic.
But littlemanpoet, if the tone hadn't changed, he (JRRT) wouldn't have been able to effectively create the unbelievably-magnificent eucatastrophic ending. (Something, I believe to have read somewhere, that he was specifically shooting-for with LOTR.) Doesn't that, in and of itself, make it the Ultimate Faerie Tale?
