JRR Tolkien was one of the most beloved writers of all time His works of art have often been said to surpass everything in literature with the exception of the Bible In his novels the reader is kept captivated with story after story and enthralled by the mythical wonder and greatness of his books For my independent study project I have chosen to study his famous novel The Lord of the Rings More specifically I have chosen to explore the themes that are explored within the first part The Fellowship of the Ring In this novel the main theme throughout is that of the undertaking of a quest In the first part The Fellowship of the Ring we see Frodo setting out an a seemingly impossible task to carry the ring thousands of miles to destroy it in the fires of mount doom Later at the end of the first part when Merry and Pippin are taken by the orces we see how that Aragorn Gimli and Legolas set out on their own separate quest to rescue merry and Pippin from the orces Also we see some Christian themes being emphasized within the first book We see the evil lord Sauron taking on the figure of Satan and all the evils associated with it We also see sort of a Judas Iscariot the man who betrayed Jesus in the Wizard Sauraman Sauraman betrays the side of goodness for that of evil all to further his own ends In Frodo we see a Christlike character who is willing to sacrifice everything even his own life to see that the rings is destroyed so that all middle earth can be saved from the wrath that would surly come if Sauron ever possessed the ring We also see a Christlike figure in the great warrior Boromir who though he is not a peaceful man gives his life so that Merry and Pippin may be spared from death
