Legolas Greenleaf – Caradhras

With that he sprang forth nimbly,

and then Frodo noticed as if for the first time,

though he had long known it,

that the Elf had no boots,

but wore only light shoes,

as he always did,

and his feet made little imprint in the snow.

Rc – Tolkien – LotR – This nice friendliness

Por |diciembre 26th, 2015|

For a while the hobbits sat in silence. At length Sam stirred. ‘Well I call that neat as neat,’ he said. ‘If this nice friendliness would spread about in Mordor, half our trouble would be over.’
‘Quietly, Sam,’ Frodo whispered. ‘There may be others about. We have evidently had a very narrow escape, and the hunt […]

Go not to the Elves for counsel,

for they will say both yea and nay.

Rc – Tolkien – LotR – For ever beyond its reach

Por |diciembre 21st, 2015|

There, peeping among the cloud-wrack

above a dark tower high up in the mountains,

Sam saw a white star twinkle for a while.

The beauty of it smote his heart,

as he looked up out of the forsaken land,

and hope returned to him.

For like a shaft, clear and cold,

the thought pierced […]

Rc – Tolkien – LotR – The praise of the praiseworthy is above all rewards

Another bed was set beside him for his servant.
Sam hesitated for a moment, then bowing very low:
‘Good night, Captain, my lord,’ he said. ‘You took the chance, sir.’
‘Did I so?’ said Faramir.
‘Yes sir, and showed your quality: the very hightest.’
Faramir smiled. ‘A pert servant, Master Samwise.
But nay: the praise of the praiseworthy is above all rewards. […]

Rc – Tolkien – LotR – Treebeard – I am not altogether on anybody’s side

«Hoom, hum, I have not troubled about the Great Wars», said Treebeard;

«they mostly concern Elves and Men.

That is the business of Wizards: Wizards are always troubled about the future.

I do not like worrying about the future.

I am not altogether on anybody’s side,

because nobody is altogether on my side, if you understand me:

nobody cares for the woods as I care for them, not even Elves nowadays.» […]

Rc – Tolkien – LotR – Barliman Butterbur

Por |noviembre 28th, 2015|

Mr. Butterbur had at any rate

not changed his manner of talking,

and still seemed to live

in his old breathless bustle.

And yet there was hardly anybody about,

and all was quiet;

from the Common Room

there came a low murmur of

no more than two or three voices.

And seen closer in the light of two candles

that he lit and carried before […]

Juan Manuel Grijalvo – Room in Bree – JRRT

Published in ‘Beyond Bree’, January 2009

For reasons that we shall discuss later, this work starts with a quote from Tolkien:

«We all know the differences in kind, but we are not always sure how to place anything that we hear. A child may well believe a report that there are ogres in the next county; many grown-up persons find it easy to believe of another country; and as for another planet, very few adults seem able to imagine it as peopled, if at all, by anything but monsters of iniquity.» (On Fairy-Stories, page 42).

Rc – Tolkien – LotR – Mighty matter of legend

Por |noviembre 26th, 2015|

‘Do we walk in legends or on the green earth in the daylight?’

‘A man may do both,’ said Aragorn. ‘For not we but those who come after will make the legends of our time. The green earth, say you? That is a mighty matter of legend, though you tread it […]
