Hi! My name is tslil, I’m a fan of LOTR and I am doing a project to school about it.

I was looking for stuff about tolkien and his work and there is one thing I didn’t find:

I was wondering if you know any articles about compering the story to the WW. If you do, please send me a link to or something, I would be greatful.

And if you prefer sending it to my Email: simantov.zlil@gmail.com

thank you very much and please do it as fast as you can.

Lets try and keep it down to one topic of this nature in one forum.

Welcome to the Plaza.

Welcome to the Plaza, Tsilili

First of all, it might be worth mentioning that the Plaza has a policy regarding homework -- while it’s all well and good to ask any specific questions that might help you with the work you have to do, asking us to do your homework for you is obviously not allowed, and research is a very important part of that work, in my opinion.

Also, Tolkien stated many times, and most emphatically, that TLotR is not intended to be an allegory of any kind, especially not to WW I (and obviously not WWII, since TLotR was begun before WWII was). So any articles you find proposing such a connection to exist except on a most basic level is probably of little worth anyway.

Sorry I couldn’t be of more help

Welcome Tslili! Here’s a thread I found in the Tolkien section relating to your topic, there is a book presented within, Tolkien and the Great War - Harper Collins ISBN 0 00 711952 6, that you would probably find to be very relevant.
