Ethical Messages and the LOTR

Postby FrodoIX » Wed Feb 06, 2013 8:14 am

Hey everybody. I'm new here and am doing a survey for my MA in Media Education thesis. Some would say that the Lord of the Rings is mostly an ethics story, or even a retelling of the story of Christ. I wanted some of your valued opinions on this. My surveyis at Survey Monkey, and for those who complete it I believe they give you the chance to win stuff, etc.

Thanks very much,

Petitioner to the Council

"And it is said by the Eldar that in water there lives yet the echo of the Music of the Ainur more than in any substance else that is in this Earth; and many of the Children of Ilúvatar hearken still unsated to the voices of the Sea, and yet know not for what they listen."

There is something profound about standing AT sea level.
