Hugs and stuff [In reply to] Can't Post

I think you're right, and the 19th century them and us-ing included a class element too (ladies' behaviour v "common" women), plus the increasing Victorian primness around drawing attention to the facts of life.

Yes, the Thorin/Bilbo hug is movieverse rather than Tolkien, but it's not out of keeping - I was thinking of things like the tenderness in Sam's relationship with Frodo, and Bilbo crying his eyes out when Thorin dies, and the very clear bonds of affection between the various hobbits themselves, and with Gandalf, and so on - all a million miles away from heap big macho man who daren't show any feelings in case people think he is gay, or weak. "My dear Frodo" - just imagine Azog saying that!!
