Like the Elves, Tolkien says both yea and nay... [In reply to] Can't Post

But it seems to me that "Leaf by Niggle" is the most allegorical of all Tolkien's works. His Letter # 131 says it was not, while his letter #241 implies that it was. After numerous readings over the years, I don't see how it could be anything but allegorical.

Argue amongst yourselves. Wink

Please visit my blog...The Dark Elf File...a slighty skewed journal of music and literary comment, fan-fiction and interminable essays.
