Frodo & Hobbits
Robin H.

No article here, just a burning question: Why is most of the news and debate on the net regarding special effects, CGI, Bombadil, Arwen? Very rarely is subject of the actual fellowship or Frodo and other shire inhabitants and their role discussed. After all Tolkien was (by his own admission) following the traditional HERO myth and it is the core of the entire story. But there is very little on the net to see regarding this subject which I find the most interesting. After all Frodo's role is really tragic and bittersweet even in it's heroism. Any responses?
