 Sidney, can you get down to the comments ( Sept.13) of Observer14, about the bond with Tolkien? And give your advice?  I do prefer this wonderful "portrait" to all the  fantastic/oniric works of EKukanova.  I'm not easy in a too fantastic climate... my recurrent realism?

Yes, I grok observer14's comments: the eyes here are evocative and illuminate an intelligence... major-league eyes...this lady of Lorien is more attractive & noble than Jackson's ladies....in Tolkien, the personalities reflect an academic's experience: they are often flat and cartoonish, especially in Jackson's conceits, although they are informed with knowledge/skills/experience.... Few Tolkien roles/characters are admirable enough to be emulated: Gandalf, Elrond, Galadriel... the focus/center/protagonist of Tolkien's world is the place & milieu itself: infinitely dark & magical, and yet full of life and faith and occasional light: a profoundly un-judeo-christian world, although a battleground between good & evil,  beauty and ugliness, and other dichotomies....Jackson's accomplishment is wedding Tolkien's fabulous milieux with players/roles therein... the greatest most admirable art of middle-earth is the place itself...one of the most sublime in English that requires Coleridge's "...suspension of disbelief..." (...mIlton & Shakespeare's milieu's do not require any suspension of disbelief...they and their characters are the other pole of English lit...)

 Ah! All is clear now!   Your Tolkien-ish KULTUR is impressive. I don't jest! I just have read a part of "the lord of the rings", contrary to you...
