J.R.R. Tolkien – The Two Towers (1954)

‘…All the big important plans are not for my sort. Still, I wonder if we shall ever be put into songs or tales. We’re in one, of course; but I mean: put into words, you know, told by the fireside, or read out of a great big book with red and black letters, years and years afterwards. And people will say: “Let’s hear about Frodo and the Ring!” And they’ll say: “Yes, that’s one of my favourite stories. Frodo was very brave, wasn’t he, dad?” “Yes, my boy, the famousest of hobbits, and that’s saying a lot.”’

One thought on “J.R.R. Tolkien – The Two Towers (1954)

  1. Point of interest: the collector’s edition of Lord of the Rings that I was (re-) reading is actually printed with red lettering for pagination and headers, so it matches Sam’s description, since it’s also a bit on the hefty side. Ah, the little things designers do. 🙂
