About this deal

The quest is extremely long, and it kept reiterating the fact that they are taking on a quest that might not be successful. is fantasy and I see one of its biggest potentials in a fusion to science fantasy, because it opens up all options including any horror or psychothriller crime plot. Feminist critics point out the lack of women in The Lord of the Rings, and that those women who are present fulfill only the narrowest stereotypes. Of course, sci fi and horror have their prodigies and milestones too, but they can go and splitter in many different subgenres, focus on psychological elements with characterization, or just epic battle and splatter, but fantasy is extremely genre standard focused regarding what to deliver and hasn´t that much room for experiments, kind of traditional in what it should deliver.

Sure it was respected and loved by those who knew it, but knowing it was not a foregone conclusion as it is today, and its audience was almost completely genre oriented. Na matter if it are the fractions, superhuman elves, monster orcs, grumpy dwarfs, wise wizards, brave halflings, etc, the heroes journey, the switching between fast and slow pace, the cuts between meta fights, battles and the preparation of these and the personal, emotional scenes and the big, epic scenes including all characters, Tolkien defined the genre in a way maybe nobody else may ever have the influence to do. I have yet to encounter a mentor character in fantasy who can compare to Gandalf, or a fictional love story that can compare to the tale of Aragorn and Arwen.As is, all I can do is compare it to every single other book I have ever read, and see how many of them pale in comparison. The story began as a sequel to Tolkien's 1937 fantasy novel The Hobbit, but eventually developed into a much larger work. Now twenty, I knew that my foggy memories of that first attempt to read Fellowship were now seven years old, and so I simply started at the beginning. All authors knows how important names are, and use them to suggest character; though when you think about what is going on, it is rather surprising how much can be conveyed just by a name.

I´m not sure if Tolkien should be praised or damned for having laid the foundations for things like Sandersons´, Jordans´, Eriksons´, etc. He graduated from the University of Oxford in 1915 and saw active service in France during the First World War before being invalided home. If you’re watching the extended editions, like we are, that isn’t enough to finish a movie in one sitting, which is a little amusing, honestly. Throw money at close to everyone and she/he will get corrupted, especially if the alternative is to get eaten by orcs while the family is raped by Uruk hais and Balrogs. There have been many books that I have cherished through the years, and I expect there will be many more to come.It's not an allegory; as Tolkien points out in the foreword, he hated allegory, and we certainly don't have an in-your-face piece of Christian apology by numbers.

No problem, you will also find Arwen's ring from "Lord of the Rings", (the 'Evening Star') here as well. In my little community (my school and the blocks surrounding my home), I was the first kid to read it. I agree with their deconstructions, but for me, Tolkien isn’t some special author, some ‘fantasy granddad’ looming over all.So, I have focused in on his world, his house and in this case, his 111th birthday, true to say he’s getting on a bit now, he may even be shrinking but it’s ok because Gandalf’s just turned up and he’s brought f*cking cake!
