Aye, Eomer. This was a thread just begging to be revisited.

You know, I have always felt this was a bit of bad press, or even Translator's Conceit. I mean, after all, we never actually see an entwife, so we never observe her/ their actual behaviour or attitude towards the natural environment. All we get is the opinion of the ents. Talk about one side of the story!
