'From A Thought,Through The Love, Till The Reality
..................and finally the cruel reality showed its real face.

Why do you think that happened?
Why didn't the Valar and the Firstborn live happily?
I don't really seem to understand the subject. As far as I know, after the return of the exiled Noldor, i.e. after the War of Wrath, the Elves dwelt in Valinor together withthe Valar.
Is the topic of the essay more like:
"Why did the Noldor want to leave Valinor and establish realms of their own?"

Yeah, it does sound a bit vaguely but maybe that's the point--you can interpret it as you like.
To me it's more like : "Explore the rocesses that took place from Eru's thought to the cruel reality in the next epochs".Though I think that the middle subject, LOVE, is really a driving force for these processes, what about hatred then? Wasn't it sometimes even more vital for what happened next? Or pride--it's such an essential emotion in the entire prolific wrk of Tolkien? Whatever, I guess, the more interpretations, the better for this undertaking.
And I have a suggestion --I psted it in the other essay thread---Can we post images,poetry and so on in the essays?

ups,I think Finduilas should re-published her topic,or at least to clearify what does she mean.
I am sorry for that,but when it is 02:50h a.m. it is hard to make things in the best way and to see whether there is any problem with the topic :( :(

I don't really seem to understand the subject. As far as I know, after the return of the exiled Noldor, i.e. after the War of Wrath, the Elves dwelt in Valinor together withthe Valar.
I talked to Gil-Galad and he asked me to explain my view.

Now, the topic is :
From A Thought,Through The Love, Till The Reality

Where did the world come from? Iluvatars thoughts ,didn't it?
However, it was innocent and young then and nothing seemed to be able to ruin that peace.
Then came the Firstborn and Valar's love to them. However, that love caused many mistakes later- spoiling the Elves, causing pride and egoism. Love had to be the Golden Ere of the Valar, however it became the Downfal or at least its beginning.
Soon the reality showed its real face and the Elves were no longer protected from Evil. They did have to know and understand to beat it.
So my main question and subject for lots of thesis is :
Where can we find the quilt for this transformation and who should we blame:
Eru
The Valar
Morgoth
Elves?
However, this subject can be interpret(as Melian said) in many ways and everybody has the freedom to express his opinion.

Please, excuse me, but the teacher in me has made me do a small correction :eek:

The title of the topic should be WITHOUT articles.
So, it should be like this:

"From Thought, Through Love, Till Reality "


:rolleyes: :p

Actually, they are both great masterpieces. I think you have expounded thorough theses. I'm absolutely astonished of how people can create such writings. Excellent! However, I'll reread them and ask you if I have any questions or remarks.

Please, let the judges decide which essay is better (and know that I am one of the judges and I don't accept such bribes:D )
