I Learned All I Ever Needed To Know Reading The Lord Of The Rings

The things some people learn reading Lord of the Rings amazes me. For example, I learned a lot about politics in “naive” localities like Hobbiton—and I do wish they’d included that long epilogue in the film, though I knew they wouldn’t—and the tale of Frodo leaving the world he knew on his quest comforted me, as I read it on the plane over the first time I came to Korea. But what others come up with surprises me even more! For example, someone’s presented an article where, rather convincingly, you can see the book as a dating manual.

Ah, book geeks. It’s a lovely thing.
