"The Hobbit as a 1935 Max Fleischer Cartoon"


Traces roots and characteristics of several of Tolkien’s characters in religious systems and symbols. Argues that “the bearers of the three Elven rings—Galadriel, Elrond, and Gandalf [...] as well as the older bearers Gil-galad and Círdan—[are] archetypal figures of a Moon-Water Goddess, a Sky-Air-Thunder God, and a Sun-Fire God.”
