I am in agreement with others that the Arda myth - or, specifically, the parts of said myth contained in L.o.t.R - can never be captured in a non-textual medium in a way that Tolkien would have...

I don't see any need to enforce strict guidelines to humour - as Saucey suggested, one man's honey is another's tar. Everyone need not necessarily agree on the merit of a particular post. What gets...

Thanks, HI, for bringing this thread back to my attention. In retrospect, my initial 'theory' made no sense, unless one subscribes to a most abstract philosophy of mind-space relations. I still...

I don't see that this theory, that Grima would necessarily be able to 'overpower' Eowyn, has a leg to stand on.

As to the rape discussion: I hardly think conjecture of this nature is true to the...

Greetings they chant to snow and haze!
For fire won't crackle and hearth won't blaze,
They may just stay beyond this night
Far from home and out of sight.

The poem you are referring to is "Progress in Bimble Town." It was written by Tolkien in 1931 & published in the same year by 'The Oxford Magazine.' Sorry, I couldn't find it online & I don't have...

Ecthelion didn't kill 100 trolls, though he did kill more than his share of Balrogs and orcs. You may be thinking of Hurin, who supposedly killed 70 trolls at the Battle of Unnumbered Tears...

Good question. My guess would be that if she defeated Melkor, she would not devour him, but would certainly consume the Silmarils. They probably would have had a similar effect on her as they had...

Yeah, but they also pronounced Eärendil, eh-ren-deel.

I assume by 'Numenore' you mean Númenórë, the Quenya name for Numenor. It was pronounced Noo-meh-noh-reh in Quenya (this is a rough...
