J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings “One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the Darkness bind them” (Tolkien, The Two Towers 233) One of the masters of British Literature, J.R.R. Tolkien was able to create a fantasy world with an endless supply of parallelisms to reality. The fantasy world was found in the “Lord of the Rings.” Tolkien is able to create wonderful symbolism and meaning out of what would otherwise be considered nonsense. He creates symbolism and meaning by mastering his own world and his own language.
