I’d like to give you a short thinker blog.
What if when stripped down, the real crux of the three books is perfectly shown in Samwise’s journey?
Could this awful carnage and waste, the trials and the pains of Middle Earth, been a picture painted by Tolkien of World War I, and Samwise a symbol, a glimpse of light, of what was still good in humanity holding secure during the great conflict?
Is the trilogy really a story about Samwise?
Give me some comments.
