Don’t Think J.R.R. Tolkien Would’ve Liked the ‘LOTR’ Franchise Much....? Can't Post

It’s funny to think how many people are at the level of ‘Lord of the Rings’ fandom where they learn to read and speak Elvish, and dress up in Middle Earth garb on a regular basis, especially when Tolkien himself didn’t hold his fantasy works on the same level as his other intellectual property. More important to him were his criticisms of ‘Beowulf’ and translation of ‘Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.’ In fact, he was somewhat shocked to realize the fan base springing up as a result of ‘The Hobbit’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings.’ As for the fans themselves, he didn’t care for them much, thinking them incapable of truly grasping what his books were really about. Sorry, guys.

Last but not least, I have come across a gorgeous violin cover on the Rohan theme in the lotr movies:
