    Well I've come to the end of the road once This was my tenth reading of Tolkien's saga of Middle Earth the first time I visited was in 1986 and it's pointless trying to write a balanced review of my favourite books Suffice it to say that these books are a part of me; written into my DNA if you like and I love t

Ive in the hands of the Orcs And all the time the armies of the Dark Lord are massing JRR Tolkien's great work of imaginative fiction has been labeled both a heroic romance and a classic fantasy fiction By turns comic and homely epic and diabolic the narrative moves through countless changes of scene and character in an imaginary world which is totally convincing in its detail. The end of an epic The Return of the King brings a conclusion to the wonderful Lord of the Rings trilogy and is one of the most satisfying conclusions to a long tale that has ever been writtenIn this book we leave Frodo and Sam in Mordor and rejoin Pippin and Gandalf Merry and Theoden and Aragorn Legolas and Gimli as the suspense builds towards the final battle Gandalf has a hard time explaining the death of Boromir to the grieving father Denethor who will have a sad ending himself as things turn out Definitely Denethor was one of the characters I liked the least Denethor s daughter Eowyn falls in love with Aragorn who is unfortunately already betrothed to an Elf princess and thus not fair game but wishes to fight Shall I always be chosen she said bitterly Shall I always be left behind when Riders depart to mind the house while they win renown and find food and beds when they return What do you fear lady Aragorn asked A cage she said To stay behind bars until use and old age accept them and all chance of doing great deeds is gone beyond recall or desire p 767 note that the page numbers are from the single volume edition of LOTR This is perhaps an attempt by Tolkien to excuse his male centric story and express his sympathy for the cause of women s euality Indeed one of the greatest moments in the entire trilogy is when Eowyn rises above her station and becomes the uniue female hero of the saga as she strikes down the Night King But no living man am I You look upon a woman It was truly a fantastic and inspiring moment Galadriel was an interesting female character too but other than glowing in the dark and handing out cool swag to passers by she was just a pretty hood ornament compared to EowynI found it curious how they call Sauron The Nameless One notably a source for Rowling having various HP characters use this moniker for her bad guy Unforgettable as well as moments of suspense when the Lord of the Nazg l seems about to strike Gandalf as Rohan arrives on the theatre of battle changing the momentum p 811 After the battle there is a beautiful moment on the city walls as Eowyn and Faramir are united just as the Ring is destroyed It is as scene of romance and yet Tolkien pulls it off without it becoming too sentimental and yet remaining epic Fantastic writing neither wind nor voice nor bird call nor rustle of leaf nor their own breath could be heard the very beating of their hearts was stilled Time halted And as they stood so their hands met and clasped though they did not know it And still they waited for they knew what notA sounds like a sign went up from all the lands about them and their hearts beat suddenly again p 945After the battle there is another nature moment where we see a seedling of Galathilion Eldest of Trees already it had put forth young leaves long and shapely dark above and silver beneath and upon its slender crown it bore one small cluster of flowers whose white petals shone like the sunlit snow p 950 Few writers capture a love of nature with such poetic precision as TolkienOn the trip back as folks peel off like leaves of corn we cross a broken but not toothless as shall be seen Saruman in a comic scene p 960 961 But when all that is left are the hobbits they arrive to find the Shire changed and under the terror of a violent band of ruffians the remnants of the armies of Saruman and Sauron Symbolically I believe that the Scouring of the Shire represents both the lost idealism in Europe after World War I as well as the horrors of World War II which was raging as he was writing the original text He edited the final draft for years before finally publishing in 1955 as well as the damage to the idyllic environment by the Industrialization of England in the XIXe century Perhaps Tolkien couldn t resist describing a last piece of bitter loss before ending his epic with the fantastically beautiful sending off from Grey Haven They ve cut it down cried Sam They ve cut down the Party Tree He pointed to where the tree had stood unde which Bilbo had made his Farewell Speech It was lying lopped and dead in the field As if this was the last straw Sam burst into tears p 993 Personally I think that this was a result of Tolkien s personal disillusionment during the Battle of Britain seeing bombs falling from the sky hitting buildings and trees he loved in and around Oxford Beautifully however Sam uickly turns his frown upside down and sets out to rebuild what is left of the Shire We then get one last ride together as Elrond Galadriel Frodo Bilbo and Frodo all ride off on boats literally into the sunset in probably the most beautiful literary sendoff that I have ever read p 1006 1008 The Third Age was over and the Days of the Ring were passed and an end was come of the story and song of those times The Elves were leaving Middle Earth for good an image and homage to our childhood dreams retreating into our memory as we become adults and shed our infancy Sam arriving to his house with his wife Rose firmly rooted in his earthly life ends the book thus He drew a deep breath Well I m back he saidLOTR is hard to summarize in words because all of it is so over the top so epic and so deeply influential on all fantasy literature in the seven decades since it was written We are all highly indebuted to Tolkien for his beautiful and youthful text If only we had all collectively paid attention to his ecological message and preserved our environment to the same degree that we extended his storytelling legacy Fino s Tolkien ReviewsThe HobbitThe Fellowship of the Ring LOTR 1The
