    I’m currently
    reading The Fellowship of the Ring and I must say that I found this poster you
    shared realy helpful mostly because with all the different places and
    characters it is hard to remember them all. Though it is more of a promotional poster
    for HRS, it’s also very fun and a nice addition to my lecture, sine it describes
    some of the principal places, and characters, but with a taste of humor that
    both attracts the reader and makes it easier to picture how the life in
    Middle-Earth would be.

    In
    addition, I completely agree with what you said about the role that the journey
    plays on the LOTR, Tolkien clearly focuses on the path taken by the characters
    rather than the wished destiny. I believe that by doing this, Tolkien reflects that
    the paths chosen, the decisions made and the experiences lived are more important
    than the end itself. Relating it to our lives, when we wish to achieve certain
    goal we think about how we’ll do it, and what do we need to achieve them; we
    unconsciously focus more on the path than the goal itself, because after all what
    we’ll forever remember will be the journey.
