A subtle touch

Tolkien still was including vague allusions to his beloved Germanic legends; a case could be (in fact has been) made that he conceived his legendarium as being the foundation stock of the "cauldron of story" from which the tales of our world ultimately derived.

So Faramir here says, twice, "I would not take this thing, if it lay by the highway."

Now, Beowulf alludes, in the periphery as it were, to the matter of Freawaru and Ingeld, son of Froda or Froši (yes, same name as Mr Baggins). Froda was the legendary king of Denmark in whose golden age, it was said, a man could leave a golden ring by the highway and it would be untouched until he came to pick it up again.....
