Synopsis

This volume interprets key parts of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic fantasy "The Lord of the Rings" in the light of Theosophical wisdom concerning the spiritual path and the quest for transformation. We are each Frodo. Like his life, ours is the starting point of a quest for adventure, for encounters with undreamed-of beauty and horror, and for learning something about the inner nature of things.

Einleitungssatz
Have you ever visited a perfect place somewhere in the back gardens of your mind where, as in the dreamland of the musical Camelot, the sun always shines when we wish it to or where, as in Shangri-La, wise monks contemplate eternal truth far above the world and its wars? Lesen Sie die erste Seite

5.0 von 5 Sternen Prädikat: Wertvoll 7. Februar 2004
Format:Taschenbuch
Was den "Herrn der Ringe" unter anderem so ungewöhnlich wertvoll macht, ist seine unbedingte Anwendbarkeit auf unsere eigene Welt und unser tägliches Leben. Indem Robert Ellwood die Reise Frodos zur Erfüllung seines Schicksals Schritt für Schritt nachvollzieht, bringt er die immerwährenden Gesetzmäßigkeiten von Initiation und Wandel wie auch den uralten Einfluss von Mythen und Archetypen auf unsere individuelle Entwicklung an die Oberfläche unseres Bewusstseins. Ellwoods Buch berührt auf eine besonders tiefe Weise, denn wenn man beim Lesen einen deutlichen Widerhall in der eigenen Seele erfährt, erinnert man sich daran, dass all die kleinen und großen Prüfungen auf unserem Lebensweg in dasselbe kosmische Muster eingewoben sind und die universellen Lebensgesetze in einem seit Anbeginn der Zeit vorgezeichneten Rhythmus schwingen.
Was uns zu tun bleibt ist den Mut zu finden, uns immer wieder neu auf den tiefen Sinngehalt von Mythen und Legenden einzulassen, ihre Schätze zu bergen und die Gewebe dieser Sagenwelten mit den Fäden unserer eigenen Existenz zu verknüpfen. Robert Ellwood hat es wunderbar verstanden, diesen Weg für uns zu beleuchten.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A book so worth reading... and living 7. Februar 2004
Format:Taschenbuch
Perhaps it is - among other things - the high applicability of "The Lord of the Rings" to our own world and daily living which makes this tale most precious to us. Analysing the stages of Frodo's way to fulfil his quest step by step, Robert Ellwood pulls the perpetual law of initiation and change as well as the ancient influence of myths and archetypes on our personal growth to the surface of our consciousness.
Elwood's book is most touching. You may feel your soul respond to the written words and therefore may - whenever you are put to the test yourself - remember that your life is woven into the same cosmic pattern and that the universal life force has been dancing in its predestined rhythm since the world began.
So it remains for us to find the courage to live out of the ancient wisdom, to mine for the treasures hidden in the legends and to plait the threads of our own existence into the mythical tissue. Robert Ellwood has done a wonderful job to light up the way for us.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Joseph Campbell would have enjoyed Frodo's Quest 25. Dezember 2002
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I enjoyed reading Frodo's Quest, and I am, in fact, re-reading it again to get a deeper appreciation of the depth of Tolkien's insight in Lord of the Rings (Lord). I have (only) read Lord three times. I first read Lord in college, next some years later and again last year before the first movie came out. At each of these times, at different stages in my life, Tolkien never failed to catch me up in the story and depth of his characters. I know that I am not alone in this, for its not unusual to meet someone who confesses that he or she has read it many more times than that. But I have often wondered why the book appealed to me so much.
Dr. Robert Ellwood who, according to his web page, is both a priest, retired college professor, and a teacher / scholar of world religions, helped me understand just why Tolkien's Lord moves its loyal readers so. Ellwood, with insightful extracts from Tolkien's other works, shows that Tolkien wove into his story the universal themes of mankind's spiritual quest. After reading Frodo's Quest, one can never again see Lord as a mere fantasy story, for Ellwood demonstrates its appeal is that, at its core, it is about our own personal spiritual search. Frodo's Quest makes use of references and quotes from psychological and religious sources to establish that Lord is a quest story in the highest spiritual meaning of that term. In this sense, Frodo's Quest will ring true to readers familiar with the works and viewpoints of Joseph Campbell or Carl Jung. The reader of Frodo's Quest, like Frodo himself, will come to realize, like we all must sooner or later, that we all live in a world that is much more than just that which can be seen or touched. More importantly, we all have a role in the eternal drama of life
But Frodo's Quest is not for everyone. It unabashedly presumes that its audience both knows the Lord books and also has a the insight / spiritual discernment to understand exactly what a universal myth is, and what it does, so it is going to put off some people of a more rigid religious outlook. But if that is the price of such insights, so be it. Frankly, I don't find the exercises at the end of chapters especially useful to most people, but they don't detract from the main message of the book. Frodo's Quest has shown us Tolkien's grand vision of mankind and revealed that Lord of the Rings' appeal is that it speaks to the Frodo within each of us, ala Campbell or Jung. Frodo's Quest is a book well worth reading over and over again.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Frodo's Quest 24. Dezember 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Frodo's Quest takes the reader deep into the world of Middle Earth. It explores themes in The Lord of the Rings such as faithfulness and betrayal, hope and despair, and this world and other worlds, with great depth and provocative insight. For example, it examines the characters of Merry and Pippin, Frodo, and Bilbo as providing insight into the human stages of youth, middle-age, and old-age. Yet in so doing, it also asks the reader to compare aspects of the story with the various stages of his or her own life.
Robert Ellwood does not present an allegorical interpretation of The Lord of the Rings, but stays true to Tolkien's vision: Tolkien protested against his stories being taken strictly as allegories, but rather wanted them to be appreciated as stories in their own right. He preferred to say that they could have applicability to our lives. Ellwood guides the reader in doing just that. As a Christian, I found Frodo's Quest to be educational and inspiring, but it has been written with sensitivity to anyone on a spiritual quest, and is respectful of all faiths. Frodo's Quest is a refreshing gift for Tolkien enthusiasts, as well as anyone open to spiritual growth.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A quest to the heart 22. Dezember 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This book is a wonderful book for those wanting to understand how to relate to the hero's journey and incorporate this journey in their own life. Lord of the Rings, by itself, is a great story and the fact that Ellwood and his wife were great admirers of Tolkien adds interest to this book. Their own love for the creator of the masterpiece brought him into their lives in a roundabout way, so one gets the feeling that this is almost Ellwood's way of saying thank you. In turn, we are gifted with a book that helps us not only understand the intimacies of the story but also how to apply the journey of Frodo to our own lives.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Book for All Traditions 22. Dezember 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Frodo's Quest is a brilliant exposition of The Lord of the Rings myth from a spiritual and mystical point of view. The author, an Emeritus Professor of Religion from the University of Southern California and a longtime Tolkien enthusiast, is eminently qualified to interpret LOTR in a fresh new way as a universal myth that speaks to readers all over the world, regardless of their cultural background or religious convictions. Frodo's Quest is presented here as every person's quest for personal transformation and discovery. The book, stunningly illustrated, is an "application" (as Tolkien called it) of The Lord of the Rings for the open-minded reader and as a guidebook for one's own quest to destroy the Ring of dominance and sectarian limitation and to find the Undying West of peace and understanding among all peoples.
