As far as a Middle-Earth myth goes, I would have to refer to the last entry of the definition provided above:

Tolkien More females than males?

I am in the middle of reading The Silmarillion, and have been noticing that there are a lot of elven deaths in the battles. Assuming that all the elven warriors were males, wouldn't this cause there...

I think that Tolkien had a very flattering conception of women in LOTR. Most of the female characters are portrayed as being on a higher plane. They are powerful and pure and goddess-like. Think...

To me, all the elvish names are very rolling, and liquid, which makes them seem melodic, as opposed to be angular and prosy.

Elrond especially demonstrates this as it has the two liguid sounds...

As a future English teacher, I am planning to teach Tolkien to some degree. I agree with previous comments that some students dislike books they are forced to read, so I would try to avoid drilling...

That is really interesting about the Eldar/El-bar. And that explains the rather cryptic story in Genesis -- they were elves of course!

I have discovered something interesting. The last half of...

A very interesting topic!

I have always thought Frodo, was a very un-Hobbit like name, some how too angular. However, when you take it apart, it is "Fro-" as in forward, and "do" as in an action....

Also, Aragorn's sword at this point is Anduril, the sword that was reforged of the Shards of Narsil. I don't think he would let it go over the falls. <BR>I believe that Boromir had his own sword...

Wow, what a neat site! I'm glad to see that other people are interested in the elven hairstyles. I think that's part of the reason I keep my hair long, so I can pretend to be an elf more easily! =)

I chose Rina, since this is the elven translation (roughly) for my real name, which means "Crown." I actually took it from "Elerrina" which means "Crowned with Stars," another name for Taniquetil in...

A favorite quote from TTT the movie is Gollum saying "What's taters, precious?" The exchanges between he and Sam are also rather humorous in the book.

I just saw TTT for the first time last night. I'm not really sure what to think about it. It was certainly different from FotR. I was most disappointed by the scenes with Frodo, Sam, and Gollum. ...

While reading Return of the King, I noticed that Frodo and Sam's journey through Mordor was as angst-filled as the final exam week I was going through.
Perhaps the One Exam...but that actually...

I wondered if anyone else had seen the elf with glasses at the beginning of FotR? It is after Isildur cuts the ring from Sauron's hand and the elves are being "blasted" from Sauron's explosion. It...
