Posting is like the Road, Rachel! [In reply to] Can't Post

You never know where it might get swept off to! But that's the fun in it!

I see your upthread point Elizabeth - reading something constantly analyzing for intended allegory is more like a homework exercise. It would really remove you from reading and feeling deeper meanings and just sort of cut and pastes other meanings into the text. I like that JRRT's 'meanings' are more complex and buried more with character rather than once-removed symbolisms.

Manwe, when asked a simple "Yes" or "No" question, contemplated, and responded "the middle one."

So, why exactly did J.R.R. Tolkien not like C.S Lewis's The lion the witch and the wardrobe? RachellovesLOTR Send a private message to RachellovesLOTR Jun 18 2013, 11:38pm
