  1. Inasmuch the legend of Culhwch and Olwen from The Mabinogion was J.R.R Tolkien s inspiration for the story of Beren and L thien, and episode with Kulervo from The Kalevala for the Turin Turambar s saga, thus The Roots of the Mountains was professor s immense inspiration for Aragorn Eowyn Faramir Triade Albeit somewhat soporific and prolix, considering quite plain narrative motive, I daresay that this book is genuine gem of late Victorian English literature It abounds with brilliant archaic Inasmuch the legend of Culhwch and Olwen from The Mabinogion was J.R.R Tolkien s inspiration for the story of Beren and L thien, and episode with Kulervo from The Kalevala for the Turin Turambar s saga, thus The Roots of the Mountains was professor s immense inspiration for Aragorn Eowyn Faramir Triade Albeit somewhat soporific and prolix, considering quite plain narrative motive, I daresay that this book is genuine gem of late Victorian English literature It abounds with brilliant archaic phrases and sentence constructions, as well as with marvellous geographic descriptions and topography which create the illusion of distance and space with its landscapes Thus, it is not ...
