For one, both Narnia and Middle Earth were created with song.
You are so right Brego. They were both very focused on good versus evil themes. I guess this is not much of a surprise when you consider that C.S. Lewis credits Tolkien with converting him to Christianity. There is also strong threads of Christianity underlying both Professo'rs works. Definitely more noticeable in the works of C.S. Lewis, but they still exist in Tolkien's as well. Especially in the character's Morgoth and Sauron. Both at one time were enlightened and mighty beings, corrupted by pride and the desire for power. Remind you of anyone in the Bible?
C.S. Lews stated in "Mere Christianity" that evil was the corruption of good. I think that theme runs heavily through Tolkien's works as well.
