    “...Nobody Cares For The Woods...”: An Analysis Of The Destruction Of Nature In The Lord Of The Rings “If it has passed from the high and the beautiful to darkness and ruin, that was of old the fate of Arda Marred…” -J.R.R. Tolkien Literature has brought awareness to the issue of the destruction of the environment over the past century. “The imagination's ability to capture this sense of holiness may also help in a revisioning of the natural world, [in] a growing field of study called ecocriticism”

    in nature. In the beginning of The Fellowship of the Ring, Tolkien states that Hobbits “love peace and quiet and good tilled earth: a well-ordered and well-farmed countryside was their favorite haunt,” (1). This continues in The Two Towers when Treebeard responds to Pippin’s remark that the Hobbit was beginning to like their location, stating “Almost felt you liked the Forest! That’s good! That’s uncommonly kind of you,” (Tolkien, Towers 452). In Cinderella, the girl is shown to frequently spend

    Nature and it’s lush beauty can be considered a valuable resource not just to humans but to society as a whole. In the creative works The Road to Isengard and Princess Mononoke the reader is proposed two societies, both of which nature and surplus of resources plays a pivotal role. When I think of a major environmental issue presented in both works, it’s easy to make the connection between colonization for profit and the negative side effects on the forest. Colonization is described as the ongoing

    Just like Yavanna's words of defending nature and punishing wrongs, the Ents are roused by the mistreatment of the trees and march upon Isengard to take on Saruman. They destroy Saruman's dam in the River Isen, subsequently putting out his forging fires. I find it imperative to take note that characters who love and respect trees and nature are on the side of good; those who cause harm to the trees of Middle Earth are on the side of evil and typically do so for the sake of industry. Typically peaceful

    The camp is attacked by a band of orcs and Boromir is killed. Before he inhales his final gasp, Boromir tells Aragorn that the orcs have taken away the hobbits. The remaining people from the gathering get together through the mass of dead orcs and with few weapons. They place Boromir's body on a raft and set it bowed on sail, having no time for the other sensibly recognition.

    of the individuals in The Lord of the Rings must learn is not to judge individuals by their outward appearances.” (Anderson 872) Support for this theme can be drawn again from Treebeard, by simply examining the support from the first theme from the perspective of Treebeard instead of the hobbits. This reveals that Treebeard learned not “judge a book by it's cover” as the saying goes. Also, many other characters learned this during the prequel to The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit. “As soon as I clapped

    Love is synonymous with the good in The Lord of the Rings. There is a strong heroic love like no other between Frodo and Sam. It is abundantly clear that Sam would lay his life on the line for Frodo and the quest of destroying the Ring. There is love of honor and love of country and underlying all fashions of love is the love a fellowship—that of one man for another (Bradley 77). There is a heroism thrust in Frodo’s lap and he accepts the task although he does not know the way (Tolkien 264). Samwise

These relationships to land correlate to modern views of the land. In the book The Good Food Revolution, the author, Will Alan, has similar views of land.
