The Lord Of The Rings

The Lord Of The Rings

This is one of the most influential fantasy series by J.R.R Tolkien. The Rings of Power are a metaphor of political power, and as they say, power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

The Rings powers cannot be used for good, even by the seemingly good people. The series is also critical of socialism and was reflective of the author’s disdain of industrialization and modern technology.
