Éowyn's Grief


Adds to the scholarly dialogue on Tolkien’s depiction of war-related mental trauma by examining Éowyn not as an example of post-traumatic stress disorder, but as a character suffering from, and beginning to recover from, traumatic grief. Emphasizes the role of Faramir as counselor and healer. Johnson’s experience as a military chaplain gives added strength to his observations.
