No doubt. After all, he left her the washing up, and allowed Sam to finish off the beer. ;)

Errr...no. As much as I like (in some ways) Bakshi's film, I agree with this classic website's (http://flyingmoose.org/tolksarc/bakshi/bakshi.htm) take on the matter:

If it's wildly successful, I fear it will be due to a disconnection with what I consider the "spirit" of Tolkien's works.

What I get from these books I can find nowhere in contemporary culture,...

It was established that the Silmaril called to those who beheld it. Carcaroth was moved to eat the thing in Beren's hand. It's a stretch to believe that having seen one, Smaug would not have touched...

I agree with this. As I've said, the idea that one Silmaril was spared so that it could end up lying on the body of a dwarf (an Heir of Durin notwithstanding) underground is out of alignment with the...

To me, that points at the "canonicity" issue, and if we're going there, then all bets are off, and anything is possible.



Yet, the Silmarils are consistently written as being important to a...

I havenít examined this thread thoroughly enough to know if this quote has been added already, but it seems to lay the matter to rest.

I thought my pic was there at one time, but I could be mistaken. It's here on the forum anyway.

It's been down for quite a long time. Since it was hosted from a different domain, I'm doubtful it's recoverable.

Welcome, Nikolasha!
I also credit my father with introducing me to Tolkien, though with me, it was The Hobbit and LOTR that I read first, with the others coming much later.

This is hands down...

First off, welcome to the Downs!

This question is, of course, open-ended, like the Balrog "wings" discussion, and the nature of Tom Bombadil.
In this thread many years ago, I conceded that it...

Inziladun, as was his wont, wandered into the Downs first thing in the morning. He feared no Great Plague, as he walked under the virtue of Moderna.

It doesn't say specifically in my Smith/Giles paperback, but I also have the 1966 Tolkien Reader with PB illustrations, and they are indeed the same.
