Use 'url' and '/url' enclosed in brackets. I, at least, haven't seen this video before now.

A reaction to the 'deplorable cultus'?... [In reply to] Can't Post

To see Tolkien in this video almost disavowing his own Elvish languages reminded me of the kind of reaction he had in his older age , trying to counteract the emergence of what he came to call 'the deplorable cultus' poured over his books by all sorts of fans from everywhere, to extents he would never have imagined - and was not approving of.
This interview is from 1968, that is, the later years indeed.
And yet, still later, when his wife Edith passed away, he did go back to almost total identification with the inner world expressed in his srories, adding on her tomb the name 'Luthien', and asking that to his own name would be added 'Beren' as well, when he too would die. And in his personal letters he writes of 'the inexorable Mandos' as if he is truly relating to that Mandos as a real being, not just a mere fictional character born in his own mind...How to interpret both those attitudes present together in Tolkien? I have my own interpretation, but would love to read about yours too, dear TORn sibs!
