The Lord of the Rings is the epic trilogy in my life. The Fellowship of the Ring, is without a doubt the best book of the three. Why? The first point I would like to state is that J. R. R. Tolkien, which I will refer to as just Tolkien from this point on, had a world created that no in literature has ever done before. He had created a whole world full of different races, civilizations, and a history for everything in both categories. The sheer detail of it all frightens me and makes me wonder how someone could have created such things, much less on such a massive scale. This is important to realize, in order to understand how truly great the Fellowship of the Ring is. Since Tolkien had such a creation, it was considered way out there because no one had ever done anything like that before, needed a way to present his ideas through another story. He did this with the Hobbit it didn’t portray enough of his ideas, which he would portray all of them in his book the Silmarillion after the Lord of the Ring series. He decided to create the Lord of the Rings to fill in this gap before he released his kind of out there ideas fully. Tolkien wrote the Fellowship of the Rings to sort of ease someone into his ideas with the peaceful setting of the shire, happy and friendly folk of Hobbiton , but the foreshadowed journey that seems eminent for the young Frodo Baggins. This plot starts out so you can relate yourself to the characters, quite easily too, and put yourself in their shoes. I think if a reader can visualize this, they…
is only worried about presenting the speech. Even through all the turmoil the young black man makes it through these treacherous events and is rewarded, but must hold his tongue when trying to speak his mind.
The young woman in the middle of the ring before the fight gives Mr. Ellison multiple opportunities to describe the struggle for equality during this time period. She represents how women had just as little choice as the black boys in a society run by white men. The white men threatened…

The Fellowship Of The Ring
The books The Fellowship Of The Ring and Airborn are both books that have many conflicts. Each conflict is resolved with the help of several main characters. Some of these conflicts are similar because they both deal with saving something the characters love such as the Aurora ( ship from Airborn ) and Middle earth ( land the Fellowship is trying to protect )
The first conflict that truly arises in Airborn is…

Without consequences would you do anything you want?
“With great power, comes great responsibility” was famously said to Peter Parker in the first Spiderman film. What if, the ‘great power’ was an invisible ring? And the ‘responsibility’ was to remain/become a good person. Is it possible? Well Spiderman certainly managed to anonymously fight crime and be a good person, but is…
Gollum is clearly hateful and scheming, Tolkien emphasizes a childish, even innocent side to Gollum as well. At times, the creature appears almost sympathetic. Why do you think Tolkien shows this soft side of Gollum?
Question3: Cooperation and fellowship figure prominently in the novel, as characters of many races cooperate in the war against Sauron. Conversely, characters who act on their own—Boromir, Saruman, and Sauron, for instance—often do so corruptly. Does this pattern imply that Tolkien…

All versions introduce startling insights into the relationship between changes in media forms and widespread fears of contagion. For it is this fascination and welcoming…

The particles that make up the rings range in size from specks of dust up to 10 m. There are two main theories regarding the origin of the rings. One theory is that the rings are remnants of a destroyed…
