Tip: Clash of the Gods – Tolkien’s Monsters

A very interesting Documentary about Tolkien and his mythology!
Check it out, it’s very interesting. They take myths and the creatures in LotR and compare to old, already existing tales like Beowulf and Völsungasaga.  So if you like Tolkien and mythology and sagas, this is something you need to check out.

    Many famous writers – uhm, “borrowed” from ancient legends. As long as their writing is good, it does not disturb me that much. I mean, if you break it down long enough, there is only about half a dozen stories worth telling in the world. (^v^)

      Yes, I don’t mind either. It’s a wonderful story and it also makes us look at the old stories again and not forget them. I love symbolism so Tolkien’s world is wonderful in my eyes. ^^
