I am grateful for everyone's response! Maybe it's just a matter of taste. I like the Sil more for it's tragic nature (the tales of Turin and Hurin, et al, appeal to me more then the tale of Beren &...

Please do not refer me to any so called "Tolkien Experts" as they are no more experts then you or I and only offer their own opinions as to what Tolkien's intentions were and state them as facts. ...

Oh pleeeeasseee. So what you're saying is that we can dismiss The Silmarillion as a valid source as well, since it was not "published in Tolkien's time". Therefore we are left with no valid source...

I would avoid taking anthing that Dominic Monaghan says about Gollum seriously. He's an actor, and not a Tolkien scholar. He's just trying to say that Gollum is a character with different...

Gandalf explains his motivations in The Quest of Erebor, however this is just Tolkien's attempt to tie together The Hobbit with The LotR. In reality it is my opinion that The Hobbit was written for...
