Re-read for the 111th time ( )

Read in trilogy. ( )

I tried to read this first in high school and found it incredibly boring--nothing like the movies. I have sense read many more fantasy books overall and decided to come back to this series, knowing full well that I would be bored, just to say that I've read it. It was still boring, but I got through it this time. The most interesting parts were the parts taken out of the movies: Tom Bombadil and Lothlorien. I'm excited to see the other things that were left out of the movies as I continue. ( )

Even better than the first few times I read it! There's nothing like Tolkien for high fantasy. ( )

I wonder if anyone has ever done some kind of substantial study about the landscape of Middle Earth as described by Tolkien, because he puts a heck of a lot of time and effort into something that I apparently just blank out of my memory after every read. The pattern of walking for most of the chapter--with commentary about the plants, the lay of the land, the weather, and any animals seen--and then squeezing all the action into the last few pages was undeniable. It kind of amazes me that an editor let Tolkien publish this book as it stands, without substantially reducing Part I. In fact, in the synopsis of The Fellowship of the Ring at the front of The Two Towers, the entirety of Part I takes up two sentences in one of four paragraphs.

I wish Tolkien had taken the time to do a little bit more character establishment along the way. Because this book is epic in scope, I miss a lot of that witty internality from The Hobbit that gave us such insight into Bilbo's character, as well as minor characters along the way. Not that it needs to be witty, not in a SERIOUS book like The Lord of the Rings, but some of the character changes seemed abrupt, particularly Legolas and Gimli's sudden friendship. Much's of Boromir's behavior makes more sense in hindsight: the first time I read, this, I was surprised that an heir to a realm who (seemingly) impulsively took off on a journey of hundreds of miles to an unknown destination just to get advice about a dream then whined about any more experienced advice about what road to take home. It's almost certainly because he wants to keep the Ring as close to his homeland as possible, but we don't know that until the very end.

On this read-through, Legolas seemed very young and inexperienced to me, at least compared to many of the other elves, which surprised me for an elf from a place as full of potential danger as Mirkwood. Gimli is certainly interested in Moria--he knows that it's ruined but still wants to see and respect the work that his people created. Legolas, when the Fellowship approaches Lothlorien, is sad that he's seeing the forest in less-beautiful winter, and to Aragorn's reply that it's beautiful--and safe--enough as it is, Legolas just whines again that he isn't there in spring. Plus there's his protest that he alone of the Fellowship should be excepted from Aragorn's decision that all of them should go blindfolded in solidarity with Gimli. It's such a stark contrast with Pippin, definitely young (don't we find out in the Appendix that he's in his "tweens", his twenties?--who's brilliantly loyal enough to go against all of his own wishes in order to support Frodo.

I used to write such intelligent, English-major reviews. Now they're all just ramblings about my thoughts and feelings, even though I participated in an entire, semester-long class about Tolkien's world. Ugh.

Still, for all the characters don't have the kind of emotional depth and development and I enjoy in most books, they do open up to the reader over time--much more time than would be realistic for people forced into close proximity and cooperation for hundreds of miles, but we do get there.

I'll close with some thoughts about Aragorn, whose character is so different between the books and the films (which I also recent rewatched with Areg). In the latter, he has "turned from that [the kingship of Gondor] long ago [and] chosen exile." Sure, it fits with the generations that came before him, but it's also cowardly. In the book, though I do wonder why it took him so long in his very long life to face up to his heritage, Aragorn is grimly determined to take responsibility for his ancestors' mistakes and make them right: there is never any question that he will help Frodo and then go to take up the throne in Gondor, to the extent that he carries around a hundreds-of-years-old heirloom--the broken sword of Isildur--on his journeys in the wild. (Not exactly a small, lightweight item you can tuck in your pocket, but perhaps it's a symbolic reminder of the weight of history on his--well, waist, not shoulders.)

But to me, reading this now in 2020, I appreciate this unrealistic-feeling sense of responsibility. There are people today who aren't even willing to wear a mask in order to help save the lives of their own loved ones, not to mention facing a 400-year history of deeply-rooted racism in his country. Yet here we have a character who voluntarily comes out of obscurity to right the wrongs of his many-times-forefathers. Unrealistic? Probably, though I do think we see some of his reluctance manifest in his long delay to decide whether he goes with Frodo or to Gondor. Classist and rooted in Tolkien's British culture of centuries of divinely-ordained monarchy? Definitely. Boromir's eagerness to accept help for his country from an unknown claimant to the throne and his historically significant sword doesn't ring true. But in 2020, wouldn't it be nice to see some people who have no claim to fame step up to the plate to save their own worlds, if not the whole one?

Perhaps Sam, Merry, and Pippin are the better comparisons here. Be like them, whoever you are. The wide world may not know you exist, but don't let that stop you. Protect your loved ones, your homeland, and the strangers to whom you owe nothing. Wear a mask. Take the quest to restore justice even if you never committed (or knowingly committed) injustice yourself. For pete's sake, care about something other than yourselves. Goodness knows I need to be better at it.

Quote Roundup

p. 34) My comment about The Hobbit, that Tolkien doesn't include references to the modern industrial in The Lord of the Rings, is quickly proven wrong:
The dragon passed like an express train...

p. 131) [Sam has been revealed as a source of information to Merry, Pippin, and Fatty about Frodo's plans to leave the Shire on his quest.]
"I meant no wrong to you, Mr. Frodo, nor to Mr. Gandalf, for that matter. He has some sense, mind you: and when you said go alone, he said no! take someone as you can trust."
"But it does not seem that I can trust anyone," said Frodo.
Sam looked at him unhappily. "It all depends on what you want," put in Merry. "You can trust us to stick to you through thick and thin--to the bitter end. And you can trust us to keep any secret of yours--closer than you keep it yourself. But you cannot trust us to let you face trouble alone, and go off without a word. We are your friends, Frodo. ... We are horribly afraid--but we are coming with you; or following you like hounds."

p. 235) I would just like to put in my appreciation for whoever decided to name their business the Forsaken Inn. That might have been an even more interesting place to stay than the Prancing Pony.

p. 275) I remember my shock about finding a vampire in The Silmarillion, but I forgot there are werewolves mentioned in here!

p. 278) I was sad to see that, even though Tolkien seems to directly quote The Hobbit to describe Rivendell, he leaves off that it can be a good place to work, if one wants to. In my review of The Hobbit I mentioned appreciating that inclusion, and now it's gone.

p. 301) This question probably has an answer, but I am too lazy to look it up. Why was there a "Last Alliance of Elves and Men" but dwarves were left out? Where were they?

p. 330) [Glorfindel suggests throwing the Ring into the sea, which I have to admit to finding kind of funny. Gandalf replies,]
"It is not our part here to take thought only for a season, or for a few lives of Men, or for a passing age of the world. We should seek a final end of this menace even if we do not hope to make one."
...and I think of global warming. Alas!

p. 362) "If Gandalf would go before us with a bright flame, he might melt a path [in the snow] for you [hobbits]."
Even I found this a hilariously ridiculous suggestion and actually giggled--maybe because it, like Glorfindel's idea of throwing the ring in the sea, comes from an elf when elves have a reputation for wisdom. This is one of the parts that made me feel like Legolas was very young, since this comment almost seemed more like it should come from Pippin. And it's just one of several times where I got the sense that most people have no clue what kind of magic Gandalf can do.

p. 369) I'd love to know more about Aragorn's life before this quest. What on earth took him into Moria? Again, there's probably actually an answer to this somewhere... I also found it very interesting that Aragorn is the one advising so heavily against going through Moria even though Gandalf is supposed to have so much knowledge of lore and what might be waiting for them.

p. 377) The Fellowship is gathered around where the they think there's a hidden door in a cliff, trying to figure out how to get into Moria.
[Gandalf] appeared to have done nothing. He was standing between the two trees gazing at the blank wall of the cliff, as if he would bore a hole into it with his eyes. Gimli was wandering about, tapping the stone here and there with his axe. Legolas was pressed against the rock, as if listening.
Did I mention that there are some ridiculous and funny parts in this book? Because this is a great image. At least Gandalf's thinking and Gimli's tapping are somewhat productive...but what is Legolas doing?

p. 442) [Galadriel] looked upon the Gimli, who sat glowering and sad, and she smiled. And the Dwarf, hearing the names [of Moria and its surroundings] given in his own ancient tongue, looked up and met her eyes; and it seemed to him that he looked suddenly into the heart of an enemy and saw there love and understanding. Wonder came into his face, and then he smiled in answer.
You know, it seems as though a lot of the wisdom of the wisest people in Middle Earth is simple empathy. The would would be a much better place if people imagined themselves in someone else's shoes more often. ( )

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

Many that live deserve death. And some die that deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too quick to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends.
I regret to announce that—though, as I said, eleventy-one years is far too short a time to spend among you—this is the END. I am going. I am leaving NOW. GOOD-BYE!
The Road goes ever on and on

Down from the door where it began.

Now far away the Road has gone,

And I must follow, if I can,

Pursuing it with eager feet,

Until it joins some larger way

Where many paths and errands meet.

And whither then? I cannot say.
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken, a light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.
Health and hope grew strong in them, and they were content with each good day as it came, taking pleasure in every meal, and in every word and song.
