The Fellowship of the Ring Teaching Unit
Excerpt From this Document
- Gandalf suggests that Frodo is fated or selected to be the Ring-bearer. What evidence is there in this story that Frodo also has free will?
- One of the themes of this novel is that the common people have the courage and the power to overcome evil. Select three characters from the story and discuss how each character’s actions in the story illustrate this theme.
- Some critics believe that Tom Bombadil’s home represents the Garden of Eden or paradise and that Tom is immune to the effects of the Ring because he is pure, lives without sin, and maintains a close tie to nature. Cite two other incidents from the story that also may be interpreted as supporting Christian beliefs.
- Tolkien has been criticized for portraying the female characters in his story in an unrealistic, idealistic way. Cite incidents from the story to discuss the extent to which you agree with this criticism.
- The Willow Tree tries to capture the hobbits but does not seem to be an agent of the Dark Lord. Which other incidents in the story are dangerous for Frodo and his friends, but are probably not the work of the Dark Lord?
