Since PJ [In reply to] Can't Post

probably also doesn't fully understand Bombadil, it was probably wiser for him to leave the episode out of his version of the story.

Tolkein always knew that myths change with time and the teller.

My feeling is Bombadil represents the Deep Past - pre Anglo-Saxon bronze age Britain. He is not affected by, and cannot affect the Ring, because he belongs to a different, earlier mythology. But the point Tolkien is making is those older mythologies don't disappear completely, they linger on in hidden corners of memory.

A Far Dragon is the best kind...

Yup [In reply to] Can't Post

I would rather PJ cut cleanly, than butcher.
