in response to recent convo's that have been bouncing around lately concerning the legitimate interpretation of LotR and the Hobbit i offer this translated article, an interview with Christopher Tolkien:
specifically, in response to my critique concerning The Hobbit as a terrific action adventure movie, but not the actual tale of The Hobbit i offer this quote:
"Invited to meet Peter Jackson, the Tolkien family preferred not to. Why? "They eviscerated the book by making it an action movie for young people aged 15 to 25," Christopher says regretfully. "And it seems that The Hobbit will be the same kind of film."
"There are at least two kinds of games.
One could be called finite, the other infinite.
A finite game is played for the purpose of winning,
an infinite game for the purpose of continuing play."
Finite and Infinite Games, James Carse
