I agree that the power of the Shire, and in the Hobbits themselves, is in their simplicity, but it's also in their toughness when cornered. When inspired, the Hobbits are able to overthrow a Maia...a...

I'm not sure what you mean by this, but Tolkien was certainly aware that his mythology was not real.

Yes, I like this nick. I am an incorrigible X Phile, the self appointed name for a fan of the show. Phial refers to the Phial of Galadriel, since I happen to really love that literary device.

As with most hero quests, the point of the story seems to me to be about the journey rather than about the particular outcome. Not to say that the outcome is unimportant, it's simply less important....

Frodo's response when Sam wants to come with him always seems to me to indicate he is more fearful that his friends will fall to the ring than his fear of Mordor itself. From this I have always...
