I have two chapter titles for my upcoming book that leave a very sour taste in my mouth. I would like to change them but I need the help of all the worthy folk on this forum who have nothing better to do. I hope that applies to at least a few. So the first chapter title that needs help is this
Attitudes Toward the Environment—the Free Peoples and the Shadow
The chapter is on the differences in how those under the shadow treat and view nature compared to the free peoples.
The next title that needs help is really an assortment of unrelated topics to the rest of the book but ones I wanted to include. Subjects such as Tolkien's view on allegory, his views on tradition, similarities that trees have to Tolkien's ents, and thoughts on escapism and fantasy in general. I was thinking of connecting the chapter title to the title of the book The Road Goes Ever on and on, But it does not have to be. I have some ideas below but the final does not need to resemble below at all.
An Assortment of Thoughts Further up the Road
Thinking Further Up the Road
Musings on the Road
More Thoughts on the Road
Hee hee. Everyone here always has SOMETHING to do. As St.Paul says, pray unceasingly.
Having said that, I will throw my churchwarden into The Ring to make what I trust shall be useful comments.
The Natural World: Free Peoples vs Mordor (Orcs take such delight in trampling; good trees being felled by Saruman for the fires of Orthanc....I assume these are being covered in your chapter, amongst others.)
There and Back Again: From the Shire to Mordor and the Return of the Hobbits
The Long and Winding Road to Mordor ( Ok maybe too close to an LOTR meets The Beatles, but this post is a brain-sturm und drang session
Looking forward to your finished work, or whatever you would like to share before that.
