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.

Essays on The Return of the King

In the third book of the Lord of the Rings series, The Return of King, continues following the Fellowship as the defend the kingdoms of Middle Earth from the evil Dark Lord.  Pippin and Gandolf (now known as Gandolf the White) find themselves in the Kingdom of Gondor.  Confronted by the Steward of Gondor (the “ruler” in the absence of the rightful king) Pippin swears his sword to the Steward in place of the Steward’s son who had given his life to save them in the previous novel.  Gandolf attempts to convince the Steward of the danger posed by the forces of the Dark Lord, but the Steward refuses to believe he might lose a fight against the dark forces of Mordor.  As Frodo and Sam continue their quest to destroy the Ring of Power, the armies of Mordor and mankind prepare for the final conflict.

The Return of the King, written by J.R.R. Tolkien, is the last of the Middle Earth saga.  The Return of the King was written a full ten years after The Fellowship of the Ring.  The Ring trilogy itself was heavily influenced by world activities, having been written during the era of World War II.  The Dark Lord’s quest for the Ring of Power has often been compared to Adolf Hitler’s quest for religious and reportedly mystical relics from around the world.

In The Return of the King, so many events are occurring simultaneously, only a writer as skilled as Tolkien could ever have hoped to create such a dynamic work.  This skill extends to Tolkien’s vibrant characters.  Many authors have difficulty maintaining the unique personae for just two or three characters.  Tolkien manages a dozen or more individual characters.  His skill justifies his icon status as an author’s author much as William Shakespeare is viewed as the Bard of Bards.

Unlike Tolkien, most students do not have this level of skill in their writing, even though many academic professors seem to expect it.  It was recently disclosed by someone close to me that she once dealt with a professor that was so strict that a single misplaced comma justified and immediate “F” in her opinion.  Thankfully, most students have never met that particular instructor.  Even absent such an academic fanatic, most students find themselves in dire need of assistance in preparing written materials.  Pride, however, turns them against seeking that help, much as the Steward of Gondor’s refusal of Gandolf’s offer of aid and advice.  Our company specializes in cases like this, offering quality, discreet writing services to students of every academic level and major.  Our services are at your beck and call.  All we need is your order.

Essays on The Fellowship of the Rings

In the Fellowship of the Rings, Frodo (who is the nephew of Bilbo Baggins from Tolkien’s previous novel, The Hobbit) receives the ring that had been taken from within the mountain caves.  Frodo is informed of the ring’s dark secrets and given a mission by Gandalf the Grey.  It is his job to destroy the ring after we find out that it is starting to destroy the mind of Bilbo who has had control of the dark object.  Frodo starts on his journey with his friends, Sam, Merry, and Pippin as they begin to make their way to where the ring can be destroyed.  They quickly learn, however, that dark forces know about the ring and are willing to stop at nothing to obtain it.

The Fellowship of the Rings was written by J.R.R. Tolkien.  Tolkien is well known for his book The Hobbit as well as The Book of Lost Tales.  He was born in 1892 in Bloemfontein, South Africa.  His father moved them from South Africa to London in hopes of becoming a manager for the Bank of Africa.  Tolkien developed Trench Fever when fighting in World War I.  After the war, Tolkien began writing books. Later, during the late 1920 or early 1930s, he and C.S. Lewis met and became fast friends.  This friendship led the two to heavily influence each other’s writings.

The main character interactions in The Fellowship of the Rings are primarily between the two hobbits Frodo and Sam.  Frodo is a proud individual, highly intelligent, and determined to prove himself worthy of being his uncle’s kin.  His friend Sam, though not as bright in some was as Frodo, is a more down-to-Earth character and unquestionably loyal to Frodo.  With the remaining members of his band, the “fellowship” seems a combination that seems in many ways unlikely to succeed in such a dangerous mission. However, the way that all of the characters work together is what brings the friendship that survives the hardship of the travels together.

In all, The Fellowship of the Rings seems slow in its uptake, but this is understandable when one considers it is the first book (the set-up so to speak) for a trilogy.  In this first novel, Tolkien focuses on the introduction of his characters and establishes the link to his previous novel, “The Hobbit.”  He also introduces the air of high adventure, bringing to bare the urgency of the fellowship’s mission as they are pursued by mysterious riders, bent on obtaining The Ring.  Many argue that this novel and the others are not a trilogy, but a series that began with Tolkien’s first novel “The Book of Lost Tales,” although many still call The Fellowship of the Rings and the two subsequent novels the “Middle-Earth” trilogy.

Many feel that to understand Tolkien’s works it is necessary to have read them all.  Although I personally have read them (I love both Tolkien and Lewis as if dear friends), each novel can be effectively written about individually by a skilled writer.  Our company employs the services of only such writers.  Each with years of experience and extraordinary talent, any one of them can prepare high-caliber essays on Tolkien’s complex saga, as well as virtually any other topic.  All we need is your order.

Essays on Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone

Stories of young men and women coming of age and learning they are more than they seem abound in the world of literature.  Yet in recent years, this genre has been taken to new heights by J. K. Rowling through her Harry Potter Series.  As occasionally happens in international publishing, the story was renamed Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone for its release in the United States.

In the first novel, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, Harry starts as a pre-adolescent boy who grew up living with non magical folk, also known as “muggles,” because his parents died when he was a baby.  Harry has a scar on his right forehead that he later learns is a mark of a powerful curse that was put upon him as a baby.  The curse was cast upon him by Lord Voldemort and was intended to kill him and his parents, yet he survived.  His parents were fighting against a wizard that had gone bad, so he killed them with a curse.  Voldemort in his attempt to kill Harry found his power reflected upon himself and was seriously injured, diminishing his power as a wizard.

The community of wizards thought that Voldemort was gone completely, yet dark secrets stalked young Harry Potter.  Throughout his young life, strange things happen around him until the day his first letter from Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft and Wizardry arrives.  With his uncle’s aggressive persistence in keeping Harry from receiving the letters, Harry becomes increasingly determined to find out what the letters are all about, even after his uncle moves the family to a remote island in an attempt to escape the flood of letters that grows with each passing day.  It is there, on Harry’s birthday, that Hagrid, groundskeeper of Hogwart’s, finally shows up to tell Harry the truth.  He is a wizard!

Based in part on reality, the “Philosopher’s Stone” was a substance that early alchemists were convinced would turn any metal into gold.  How does the additional mythos of eternal life factor into such an environment and how does it affect the nature of the storyline?

Voldemort is described as being hungry for power and willing to kill anyone in his way.  Harry is his dichotic opposite, having no desire for power and caring for all those around him.  Discuss the manner in which Rowling builds this image and critique its effectiveness.

Hidden within the novel is an underlying message of power being safest in the hands of those who don’t want it.  Find examples of this theme and discuss how this philosophy affects the actions of Harry Potter and his friends.

In addition to being a modern classic, Rowling’s first novel also demonstrates the tensions that occur between publishers and writers.  Rowling has expressed remorse over the renaming of the U.S. release of the story, yet does not regret allowing its publication in the U.S.  In the relationship between students and their instructors, issues of this nature are not uncommon.  Our team of dedicated writers understands this and is ready to assist you with any revisions necessary to help make your paper or presentation perfect.  All we need is your order to get started.
