Essays on The Two Towers

The Two Towers is the continuing story of the Fellowship of the Rings, standing as the second novel of the Lord of the Rings Trilogy.  This novel with the characters Merry and Pippin being taken by Orcs as they believe that Merry and Pippin are the Hobbits that are said to carry the Ring.  Several other members of the Fellowship begin to follow the tracks of the Orcs in order to try to find their friends and colleagues.  It is then that Merry and Pippin meet up with Ents, a tree like person, and carried to a meeting where it is discussed whether or not they will fight against the Orcs.  Around these events the conflict between the evil wizard who created the Rings of Power and mankind is rapidly escalating.

The Two Towers are written by J.R.R Tolkien, a distinguished author who served as a professor at Oxford University from 1925 until 1959 and was friends with equally distinguished C.S. Lewis who also taught at the same university.  Tolkien’s writings are considered to have given a rebirth to tales of magic and mythology, found in abundance on during the epic period of Greek and Roman literature centuries prior.  Since this time, the genre of fantasy adventure has grown, with Tolkien’s work driving a new generation of authors over the past three-quarters century.

Though the majority of characters were introduced in the prior novel, The Two Towers brought in two additional major characters.  The first, originally introduced in Tolkien’s prior novel “The Hobbit,” was Gollum.  It is learned in the course of the novel that Gollum was not always the monstrous beast the adventurer’s have known.  His deformation, physically and mentally, was caused by years of exposure to the evil power of “The One Ring.”  The second character introduced is Saruman.  Once a member of the white wizards, Saruman has become corrupted by the thirst for power, which he believes the “One Ring” will give to him.  In his preparations to capture the ring for himself, he destroys the forest surrounding his tower (the lesser of the “two towers”) while inadvertently creating the army that will follow Sauron, the dark lord who first created the rings of power.

Though J.R.R. Tolkien did not intentionally insert moral or spiritual lessons into his novels, he did in fact create a believable world.  For years prior to writing the first of his novels, Tolkien meticulously created the mythos and “history” of the world in which he would later set his stories.  Though indirectly, this pattern is also one used by students and educators in the development of a student’s academic knowledge.  For a student to have the maximum potential for success, a strong background must be established.  Unfortunately, there are significant flaws in the student’s “mythos” or skill base.  Most notably is the frequent lack in research and writing skills.  Companies like ours supply professional quality writing services to academic aspirants and industrial professionals alike.  With years of experience, our writers can provide quality papers on virtually any topic and at any academic or professional level.  Contact us today to find out how we can help you with your next assignment.
