Shield Faramir taking the Ring

I think Faramir would definitely have held out longer than Boromir, but would have eventually tried to take the Ring. However, I don't think his motives would have been the same. Boromir wanted the...

I think Frodo would have met Boromir in Ithilien, Boromir would have taken the Ring to Denethor, and the War would have been lost.

Shield Faramir's relationship with Denethor

Lobelia,

I always read that passage as a command, not a plea --"If I do this stupid thing for you, then you'd better show me some respect when I get back" but I can see how others might feel...

Elfstone, I disagree with you about Faramir. I believe he would have supported Aragorn's claim even if his father were alive. Faramir went on the suicide mission because it was his duty to do as his...

Shield Boromir wasn't the problem

I think Boromir would have accepted Aragorn as king. The problem would be that Denethor would not have despaired if Boromir lived and so he too would have been alive at the end of the War. I don't...

Female orcs

Just because Tolkien didn't mention them doesn't mean they didn't exist. Tolkien didn't mention female eagles or female Haradrim either, as far as I know, but no one is suggesting they were dug out...

Shield Faramir's resistance

I think Faramir's resistance to the lure of the Ring came from both his own characteristics and also the circumstances under which he came across it.

Faramir had more Numenorean traits than...

What's wrong with crying? It releases tension. Just be sure you don't have to be anywhere special after finishing the book. Then you can experience it at leisure. I don't usually find the ending sad,...

I was disappointed in that Theoden's death (which always makes me cry when I read it) didn't move me at all. I was also hoping for the houses of healing scenes and was pretty disaapointed when they...

I think the green stone was the Elessar, or Elfstone, that was given to Aragorn by Arwen via Galadriel as a token of hope. (It's in the "Farewell to Lorien" chapter.) He later took his name as king...

I agree with Findegil: we just don't know.

To expand on what Silver Dragon said, Denethor knew Isildur's heir was coming to Gondor to claim the Kingship -- probably via the palantir. In the Pyre of Denethor, after Denethor reveals he's been...

Also, as Finduilas' family has an elvish ancestor, Faramir and Boromir have a teeny bit of elf in 'em.

Lalaith, I agree that the fan reaction to the changes in Arwen's character had a nasty edge to it. That was wrong. Some of those people were just rude and immature, in my opinion. I also had...

It's not essays, but the Henneth Annun site had a fanfiction challenge where the authors were to address the question:"Was Eowyn a heroine or a deserter?" You might find it interesting.
