On the first glance and even on the second Frodo listens more to his shadow than to his Anima — if he has an own Anima at all. The result is surprising and I hope a bit entertaining. He also imbued it with elements from his own Catholic faith. It transcends the personal and the particular to touch us all.
Jung in the early years of the last century was always more religion than a science anyway. His concept of archetypes and archetypal imagery has permeated our culture, especially in the arts and humanities. It is one thing to like a piece of art, but another to analyse and assess it as a collective unconscious.
I found little other and better than that. Separation and departure from the safe haven of home or childhood, Initiation, The Fight or the underworld, Return and reintegration.
Heroes are almost always the most unlikely person possible.
When they are touched by the light of the conscious mind they may become in the lower plane instincts and the higher realm images. Archetypes not per se! Symbols are the core of our culture being the universal patterns of myth, religious symbols and Tolkien.
Symbols Though there are many symbols in the story, four symbols of personal power are central to our theme: The phial of light. The invisibility cloak, confers the power to change but it also entails the power to deceive.
Jung loves the number four. Functional Archetypes The total psyche: The psychological term Ego is the center of consciousness and ensures the physical survival. Ego often has an extended meaning in the spiritual language and referrers in general terms to an obstacle for Self realization.
Jung distinguishes sharply between Ego and Self and differentiates the unconscious thoughts and feelings of both types of memories: In addition he introduced the collective unconscious, which belongs to the common humanity, as part of an individual psyche.
The Ego Frodo and the Shire express the realm of Ego. Howver, the Ego must also be overcome and accept the shadow.
This is part of the power of the shadow. Frodo passes this test, but the price is loosing himself, dissolving the Ego. He does not come close to her, and thats in my opinion why he in end fails on the mountain of doom to give up the ring.
It will shine still brighter when night is about you. May it be a light to you in dark places, when all other lights go out. Arwen, by committing to Aragorn, gives him the inspiration to complete his part of the quest. According to Jung, we all must struggle with our shadow.
The more we try to flee from or ignore the shadow, the more it grows and the more power it gains over us. To master the shadow, we need to stop running, turn, and face it. We cannot gain mastery over our weaknesses until we first admit that we have them and then forgive ourselves for that.
Only then can we see clearly how to overcome them. Looking at Gollum, Frodo feels pity.In his masterwork The Lord of the Rings, J.R.R. Tolkien created what he called a "new mythos for England." The story, set in a world Tolkien called Middle-earth, puts forth a possible alternative past for our Earth, one that could have occurred before our written history began.
