Allegory of Middle Earth
5/15/2007 9:43:34 PM

Allegories are deceiving because they are desperations needings.


"Erin, the allegory of Middle Earth has many shakes often unseen by the naked eye (the fabled Eye of Sauron). There are Those literary Critics who believe Orcs are nothing more or less than elfs corrupted by Middle Earth, and uncorrupted elfs must find a new land to live; the fact of running from the evil memories of their past. Hobbits are an allegorical race signifying Human memory, and Sauron signifies the greed in humanity. Dwarfs are nothing more than the Plunders of the Earth, uncaring of the heritage of their forebears, and nothing about what will come after. Humans in Middle Earth is humanity trapped in their own gross desires and pursuits.lgl"

I'm bringing this over to my ‘God’ string, 'cause I've had some thoughts on labeling anything known. I've been thinking of 'The Lord of the Rings', confined within your post, Lawrance, and, I say no, the allegories are all wrong! Keeping in mind I’ve had my dictionary open to the word for a few days, studying this, and that. Not numbers, nuances.

What do the critics say about the non-nonce use of religion within this epic? There are no fabricated religions! There are myths, legends, songs, limited magics, heroic and missed deeds, corrupted entities, living confinities, physical enemies, life, love, madness, history, herstory and fractured happiness, but, no religions. No coddled, interpreted strictured rules of god-laws, no Supreme Being which offered heaven-gained-after-this, no curse as worse as 'Mithril!’ Unless you consider 'evil' a religion, I think it is more of a 'condition'.

There is no singular God, but, there is a singular Devil. Maybe the allegory of 'The Lord of the Rings' is much simpler than critics agree, maybe all Gods, hidden or not, represent the One God, which, it’s been led me to believe, is Love. Or Light, or whatever else a spatial epitome would guise itself as, even, in the smallest instance, as one mind.

I see how each RT poster 'sees', in their different styles, experiences and writing essence, and, I'm none of them, yet, all. Isn't that what Religions should be striving for? Incorporating each-us spirit into something grand? Or worthwhile? Or, even just, compassionate? Circumstances deny manys choice of how to give their life-living, and, we think that’s cruel. But, maybe it’s hell, repeating.

There's only One Devil, yet, It's many offspring riddle our lives with the universal fear of loss of heaven. There is only One God, yet, It’s many offspring riddle our lives with the universal fear of unacceptance.

I think the word 'crippled' has been too easily applied to outsides, and not equitable to 'cripples of soul'.

Overall, I still can’t keep from yearning I was Tolkien, when he wrote this masterpiece. Imagine the passion! The excitement! The peace with each piece which co-created its theme, life, scenery, emotions, dress, passages, creatures, love, god, devil, light and dark, language, poetry, all falling into place, well, into soulitity. Yeah, that’s the ticket to the train of life, soulitity! Even if, would I be worth enough for the cost of the trip?

Kismet, reincarnation, redundancy, its seeming to me to escape all That would be heaven.

Note, Tolkien expresses time passing, past, is or to come meldingly as ‘Ages’. I feel Tolkien is expressing his vision we could have if we could stop over-entering the ‘Third Age’, we must use different tools than the last age to overcome our/these trials. And I’m not talking about the ‘Bronze Age’.

What tools? Science? Politics? Knowledge? Poetry? Schooling? Song? Um, well, um, what type of now-action would influence a teeming, tiny world? I think it’s instinct, solar plexus feelings and mind-emotions.

And, while we're at it, allegory, in this instance, can go take a hike!

Okay, the 'flames' have been cooled...
