    I have to do a literary-criticism-type-thing for LOTR and I need to decide on the type of criticism by Friday. Right now, I'm considering historical, sociological, and mythological (archetypal) criticism. Which one would you all reccomend that I use?

    I think those would all be fascinating, particularly the mythological criticism. Are you planning on writing about all three books? If so, that would make for quite a lengthy paper [​IMG]
