Blurb/Shorttext:
Evil pervades the narrative scene in Tolkien. Hence, his major themes in The Lord of the Rings are shown to be the Evil Nature of Power, the Tyranny of Technology and War as a Destructive Agent. Evil is not as powerful as good. The Boethian conception of evil comes through evil beings such as Melkor Morgoth in The Silmarillion or Sauron, who cannot do good things but only pervert or mock things. In The Lord of the Rings, Tolkien seems to suggest that there is no absolute evil. The other conception of evil is the Manichaen, a conception which receives more emphasis in Tolkien's trilogy and which sees the world as a battle-ground for warring forces of good and evil. Tolkien frequently personifies the Ring as if it were acting with a will of its own. Evil cannot be creative. Thus, Mordor, the dark and sinister land where Sauron and Mount Doom are to be found, and the land which contains so much of the England that Tolkien hated is shown to be, unlike the good Shire with its simple homely life which contains so much of the England that Tolkien loved. Even in his use of names Tolkien takes us to places and people that seem good or bad.
