Thread: the belrog
<<  
And I do think he follows some of the discussions. I read that somewhere, that one of his staff members said he did worry about all the gossip a little (before the film came out) but that he was sure of himself and that the result pleased him very much and that he hoped it would please the public too. So there you are then...
Oh! and to make a quick comment about "smoteing its ruin on the mountain" I always imagined that the balrog was already dead and its body was falling. Just a little somthing to think on.
'Cos i havent gotta scooby!
Does it have anything to do with the Mighty Milkor ?
Happy now, Mr Prince of Wales ?
they forgot the fluffy slippers! LOL
oops, sorry bad joke
This is one of the things I can't stand about Tolkiens writing... TOO MANY DETAILS!! Just tell me he's smoking, don't tell me where the pipeweed comes from and how long it's been there!!
Swampfaye, some people actually ENJOY his writing. And some people enjoy, having read the book, studying the details, and becoming experts on them. And sometimes people actually find there to be not enough details. No one is making you read Tolkien's books. No one is making you join a site full of Tolkien fans. You have a free choice.
...or whether there was such a thing as dwarf women or why the elves were leaving middle earth or how Aragorn and Arwen fall in love and so on. It is however, fun to speculate on some things (see "Rivendel").
Tolkien does right about how Aragorn and Arwen meet, in the LOTR, just not in much detail. I know there is more material on it in another book or 2, try reading the Appedix of The Return of the Kind, also try Unfinished Tales, it might have something.
There is mention of dwarf women in his books, but very elusive.
