Okay, end of the school year, and for my AP English 12 class, we must write a research paper (10-15 pages and formal). Luckily, my English professor is quite laid back, and a HUGE fan of LOTR, Star Wars, HP, and great movies. Our paper must have something to do with a "great work of literature," which, for him, includes LOTR. So, I have chosen my topic, but I need resources and people to cite. I'm asking you, and would possibly like to use some of your responses in my paper. I'd love for you to add your two cents, and let me know if its okay if I quote you. You will be cited in a bibliography, linked to your journal.
Now, the topic-- Differences between the movies and the books, why Peter Jackson may have added/left out parts, and what effects this had on the catharsis (feeling a story gives you). Please, feel free to be long-winded. This is a HUGE paper, I would love to fill in a lot of it with LJ friend quotes. ^_^
