31 January 2004

I came across this site called which has an article on LOTR and the impact that WWI had on Tolkien and the books. It makes for an interesting read, and a lovely review of both the books and the films. In essence the article argues that the message we should take from LOTR is how harrowing war is. I think I would agree, but I also think that one of the most important messages from LOTR is to beware of those who accept power, no matter their stated reason.
