Gimli sees the city through the eyes of a worker of stone, admiring the best of what he sees but also how he might improve it with the aid of the stonewrights of Erebor.
Tinuviel was dancing there To music of a pipe unseen, And light of stars was in her hair, And in her raiment glimmering. There Beren came from mountains cold, And lost he wandered under leaves, And where the Elven-river rolled.
He walked along and sorrowing. He peered between the hemlock-leaves And saw in wonder flowers of gold Upon her mantle and her sleeves, And her hair like shadow following. Enchantment healed his weary feet That over hills were doomed to roam; And forth he hastened, strong and fleet, And grasped at moonbeams glistening.
Through woven woods in Elvenhome She lightly fled on dancing feet, And left him lonely still to roam In the silent forest listening.
He heard there oft the flying sound Of feet as light as linden-leaves, Or music welling underground, Now withered lay the hemlock-sheaves, And one by one with sighing sound Whispering fell the beechen leaves In the wintry woodland wavering.
He sought her ever, wandering far Where leaves of years were thickly strewn, By light of moon and ray of star In frosty heavens shivering. Her mantle glinted in the moon, As on a hill-top high and far She danced, and at her feet was strewn A mist of silver quivering.
When winter passed, she came again, And her song released the sudden spring, Like rising lark, and falling rain, And melting water bubbling. He saw the elven-flowers spring About her feet, and healed again He longed by her to dance and sing Upon the grass untroubling.
Again she fled, but swift he came. He called her by her elvish name; And there she halted listening. One moment stood she, and a spell His voice laid on her: Beren came, And doom fell on Tinuviel That in his arms lay glistening.
As Beren looked into her eyes Within the shadows of her hair, The trembling starlight of the skies He saw there mirrored shimmering.
Tinuviel the elven-fair, About him cast her shadowy hair And arms like silver glimmering. Long was the way that fate them bore, O'er stony mountains cold and grey, Through halls of iron and darkling door, And woods of nightshade morrowless.
The Sundering Seas between them lay, And yet at last they met once more, And long ago they passed away In the forest singing sorrowless.The film the "Lord of the Rings: Return of the King" is an amazing masterpiece.
It does not merely entertain, but takes the audience to a magical land from medieval times where hearts can soar, imaginations fly, and spirits rise.
The film teaches the virtues of fellowship and cour. The Lord of the Rings ends with the peaceful and joyous marriage between Aragorn and Arwen, the King and Queen. The Book of Revelation also ends with the Marriage Feast of the Lamb, when Christ and His bride, the Church, will be joined in perfect, joyous unity for all eternity in heaven.
Since the publication of The Lord of the Rings by J. R. R. Tolkien, a wealth of secondary literature has been published discussing the literary themes and archetypes present in the story. Tolkien also wrote about the themes of his book in letters to friends, family and fans, and also in the book.
Third, The Lord of the Rings— as I have tried to show in this review—embodies the three aesthetic virtues of goodness, truth, and beauty to a degree almost untouched by any other major work of art of the twentieth century.
That’s the key idea to understanding courage in The Lord of the Rings. Tolkien didn’t theorize courage. He showed what courage is in practice as a matter of choice.
Contrast Tolkien’s understanding with the popular one most of us have.
It’s what I call the Hollywood Hero view. Courage is something some people have. It’s a capacity. Determination. Slug-slayer. The Shire. Wolf-slayer. Ered Luin. Barghest-slayer. Bree-Land Lord of the Rings Online: Traits Game Guide is also available in our Mobile App.
