      This but he is the eldrich horror that is Tolkien to the world of which he is the demiurge. It's inserting a god into a story that knows he is in a story.

    >Book published before the hippie movent
    >Tolkien expressed disdain for hippies and their affinity for his work during his lifetime

    ngmi. Although assuming this isn't a bad faith troll, Tom Bombadil was from an earlier draft of Fellowship that was closer in tone to "The Hobbit" and had whimsical characters like that who were closer to Beorn and the trolls. The later drafts changed the story to a more mature fantasy but Tolkien kept bombadil in for some reason, later retconing him as a miar

      less whimsical doesn't automatically mean more mature, midwit

          I didn't correct you because I don't know what you meant.
          Instead of being a butthurt touchy homosexual, how about clarifying so we can all understand what the hell you're talking about?

            How could I be more clear? Tom Bombadil was from an earlier draft that was intended to be more totally inline with the Hobbit. He later revised it as he wanted to make LOTR for an adult audience. He kept Tom Bombadil in because he liked him and retconned him to be a miar. What part don't you understand?

            And that's why I called you a pedant and a moron. LOTR Is in no way dark and to the degree you can make the argument you could also call it mature. As more geared towards adults than children. The tone and characters are not whimsical and fairytale like and more in line with history and mythology. You have contributed nothing to the conversation and you should feel bad.

    Amazon Prime announced it will feature Tom in the next season, so you'll find out in a few weeks I guess.

    The sad redpill is that most of the time Tolkien was a pretty shitty writer. PJ had to move shit around, cut back on hobbit songs, and cut out Tom B to make a remotely entertaining story.

    He existed before the Hobbit and LOTR books, hence the lines about him being there before. He was just an older story that Tolkien worked into the books.
