A few nights ago me and my partner were having our 372183th LOTR marathon session and as usual, we got talking about the messages that Tolkein may be trying to convey to us in his works.
I have recently begun to wonder if the Tale of Beren and Luthien, and the Tale of Arwen and Aragorn, both ending in the death of the Elvish princesses after they wed mortal human husbands, are referring to the loss of the immortal beauty of white women to race-mixing? And are they be a warning to the women of the west to only mix with their own kind?
I would love to hear some thoughts on this one.
There are thoughts. Read the whole thing here. It is bizarre beyond comprehension.
