About this deal

The ring out of the box looks and feels like a quality piece of engineering and stylish piece of jewellery. One could go one more meta step and say that it´s not just addiction, but ideological contamination too, that extremism and faith poison the minds of normally friendly people who carry their toxicity home and make living together hell.

In ancient times the Rings of Power were crafted by the Elven-smiths, and Sauron, the Dark Lord, forged the One Ring, filling it with his own power so that he could rule all others.

All that to say that in reading the oldest extant myths in the "Old" languages, Tolkien got a sense that there was something important that was hidden just beneath the surface, and he spent nearly his entire life as a linguistic speleologue trying to find it - sort of a human Dorin mining Moria to find the original stories.

He graduated from the University of Oxford in 1915 and saw active service in France during the First World War before being invalided home.The colours are vivid and intense and have been injected to really make this piece hit you right between the eyes and bring back some great memories! It also was extremely slow going in places (more than 100 pages just to leave to go on the adventure). I loved the bond between Indiana and his father and how both of their attire are so well known, this plays a key part within the detail. This is my interpretation of The Pirates Of The Caribbean - The Curse Of The Black Pearl entitled ‘My Spirit Will Live On’. The Elves represent the very first humanoids to arrive in England whereas the Dwarves represent the various invasions from Norway, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Iceland before 1000.

Stealing everything possible from mythology and the, maybe sometimes a tiny bit boring, old, classics. 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'. I wrote quite a lot about Tolkien's sensibility to nature in my previous LOTR reviews (see below), but I wanted to reiterate that in these books, nature itself is a character in the saga.

At one point, Galadriel could become a supremely powerful figure, but she renounces it in The Two Towers after looking into her Mirror and seeing the consequences. The worst part is that the shrinks started taking any and all diversions away from me, along with my books.

Arwen's place (in the books, at least) as a maiden waiting for the hand of her king takes the "reason to fight" to even greater heights. His theory was that there were shards of that previous system of beliefs, fears, mythologies that survived in story form in the Arthurian tales, in Beowolf, in Gawain, and other Old English remnants. Writing this down reminds me of one of the Sufi stories in The Pleasantries of the Incredible Mullah Nasrudin. I´m not sure if Tolkien should be praised or damned for having laid the foundations for things like Sandersons´, Jordans´, Eriksons´, etc.And those are only a few examples of aspects in which I consider The Lord of the Rings to be superior to all others. The Lord of the Rings is a triumph on countless levels, but it is not the word of God, nor should it be elevated to such heights. It's something that can be read at more than one level, and, before dismissing it, let's take a look at what those levels might be.
