    Considering that The Lord of the Rings is one of the most popular books of the last century, it s surprising to see how few reviews there are here I get the impression that many people feel guilty about liking it It s a phase you go through, and the less said about it, the better I think this is unfair to the book, which, I am prepared to argue, is a whole lot better than it s generally made out to be I don t think its huge success is just evidence that people have no taste It s something t Considering that The Lord of the Rings is one of the most popular books of the last century, it s surprising to see how few reviews there are here I get the impression that many p...

    The true source of the fantasy fiction genre Tolkien has spawned so many fantasy writers since The Lord Of The Rings went into print I love all the earlier ones too like Verne and Carrol and CS Lewis but The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings its like an institution Who else, besides me, has the notion that the real hero in the Lord Of The Rings story is Sam Sam is the typical accidental hero He is the girl or boy next door, the ordinary folk Sam is you and me and represents the courage we The true source of the fantasy fiction genre Tolkien has spawned so many fantasy writers since The Lord Of The Rings went into print I love all the earlier ones too like Verne and Carrol and CS Lewis but The Hobbit and The Lord Of The Rings its like an institution Who else, besides me, has the notion that the real hero in the Lord Of The Rings story is Sam Sam is the typical accidental hero He is the girl or boy next door, the ordinary folk Sam is you and me and represents the courage we all have inside of us He shows that when the going gets tough and the shit hits the fan it is the most unlikely of us that step up Hero s are not always musclebound hunks Not always the James Bond type character or the brilliant lawyer bringing justice to the deserving Almost all of the time the hero is the one that does the things that go unnoticed, uncelebrated There is a hero in all of us whether we know it or not A Hobbit finds himself on a quest that will change his life...

    Authors who inspire a movement are usually misunderstood, especially by those they have inspired, and Tolkien is no exception, but one of the biggest misconceptions about Tolkien is the idea that he is somehow an innovator of fantasy He did add a number of techniques to the repertoire of epic fantasy writers, and these have been dutifully followed by his many imitators, but for the most part, these techniques are littlethan bad habits.Many have called Tolkien by such epithets as The Fa Authors who inspire a movement are usually misunderstood, especially by those they have inspired, and Tolkien is no exception, but one of the biggest misconceptions about Tolkien is the idea that he is somehow an innovator of fantasy He did add a number of techniques to the repertoire of epic fantasy writers, and these have been dutifully followed by his many imitators, but for the most part, these techniques are littlethan bad habits.Many have called Tolkien by such epithets as The Father of Fantasy , but anyone who makes this claim simply does not know of the depth and history of the fantasy genre For those who are familiar with the great and influential fantastical authors, from Ovid and Ariosto to Eddison and Dunsany to R.E Howard and Fritz Leiber, it is clear that, long before Tolkien, fantasy was already a complex, well established, and even a respected literary genre.Eddison s work contains an invented world, a carefully constructed and well resear...

    One of the greatest trilogies of all time and certainly the measuring stick to which all subsequent fantasy style writing is compared, The Lord of the Rings trilogy still stands at the top of the stack Its realism, the characters and monsters, the storyline, the epic battles, and the quest motif are all drawn with incredible care by Tolkien in his chef d oeuvre My favorite was The Two Towers but all three are absolutely stunning It has been a few decades since I read them so perhaps this year One of the greatest trilogies of all time and certainly the measuring stick to which all subsequent fantasy style writing is compared, The Lord of the Rings trilogy still stands at the top of the stack Its realism, the characters and monsters, the storyline, the epic battles, and the quest motif are all drawn with incredible care by Tolkien in his chef d oeuvre My favorite was The Two Towers but all three are a...
