Time and The Lord of the Rings

Time and The Lord of the Rings     /     El tiempo y El señor de los anillos

“There is a great Devil in the universe and we call it Time.” _Priestley

(“Hay un Mal grande en el universo y lo llamamos Tiempo”)

The real theme for me is about something much more permanent and difficult: Death and Immortality: the mystery of the love of the world in the hearts of a race ‘doomed’ to leave and seemingly lose it; the anguish in the hearts of a race ‘doomed’ not to leave it, until its whole evil-aroused story is complete.

The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien

(El tema real para mí es sobre algo mucho más permanente y difícil: la muerte y la inmortalidad: el misterio del amor por el mundo en el corazón de una raza “condenada” a marcharse y perderlo de la misma manera; la angustia en el corazón de una raza “condenada” a no marcharse, hasta que toda su endiablada historia se haya completado. _Las cartas de J.R.R. Tolkien)
