The Tolkien essays by Iluion

Rated G
[Reviews - 1]
Table of Contents

Welcome to my new project while it isn't a real story i wanted a place to publish this and i thought i'd try this out. First of all i'm a major tolkien geek i read al the books about once a year, so it's fair to say that it is a bit of an obsession. i reglary encounter articles or statements about tolkien and his workswhich canbe misleading or just plain wrong and most of these vould have been prevented with just a bit of insight. that's why i have decided to post a series of articles or essays to explain some of the misconceptions about tolkien's works. a few of the topics i want to cover are: Who or what exactly is tom bombadil? do balrogs have wings? why couldn't the eagles be a taxi service? and what exactly is the difference between an orc and a goblin?

Feature On Writing Tolkien's Elves by Oshun

Rated G
[Reviews - 3]
Table of Contents

Better late than never, I hope. I took the opportunity of the August 2012 Non-fiction challenge at the LotR Community Live Journal to write up some very personal thoughts of my own. I spend a part of every month, trying to write a character biography for the Silmarillion Writers Guild. Those are certainly not free of opinion, but are hopefully written in a more objective and overall more scholarly tone than this one. Anyway, for your kind perusal is this piece, halfway between a rant and a whine, but filled with not only with heart, but references to the texts.
