They would not be [In reply to] Can't Post

as silent as a pair of bare hobbit-feet, would they! For this reason, it's just as well that Tolkien forgot about writing them into the text.

I just took a look in Annotated Hobbit at Tolkien's illustrations, "Sketch for The Forest River" and "Bilbo Comes to the Huts of the Raft-elves", and sure enough, that Hobbit is wearing boots!

I'd love to sit down with Tolkien in a pub somewhere and discuss this with him...


"I desired dragons with a profound desire"

"It struck me last night that you might write a fearfully good romantic drama, with as much of the 'supernatural' as you cared to introduce. Have you ever thought of it?"
-Geoffrey B. Smith, letter to JRR Tolkien, 1915
