The dullards of fantasy have merely rehashed and reshuffled the old tropes back and forth, imagining that they are creating something. Yet despite internal conflicts, there is something respectable in what he achieved, and no fantasy author has yet been capable of comprehending what Tolkien was trying to do and innovating upon it.Furthermore, Tolkien’s exploration of themes such as friendship, sacrifice, and the triumph of good over evil resonated with me on a profound level.

The Lord of the Rings trilogy, a literary masterpiece, took me on an unforgettable quest to destroy the One Ring, Sauron’s malevolent creation. The Eddas were long and convoluted because they drew from many different stories and accounts, combined over time by numerous story-tellers and eventually compiled by scribes. I also think it's interesting, that he's equally good at writing these big epic-scope sequences as he as at writing really quiet ones. They mimicked his style, but did not understand his purpose, and hence produced merely empty facsimiles. One of the scenes I remember most vividly is when the whole Fellowship is just walking along a road somewhere, and he describes how the footfalls of each race of character sound differently.Readers will be able to follow the complete story of the Hobbits and their part in the quest for the Ring – beginning with Bilbo’s fateful visit from Gandalf and culminating in the dramatic climax between Frodo and Gollum atop Mount Doom – while also enjoying over seventy full-page colour paintings and numerous illustrations which accompany this epic tale.
