The only thing that seems to bother me about your “The Lord of the Rings” is when Gandalf is saying “the Lord of the Ring means… the king.” I don’t understand the relevance of his use of the English word “king” (which implies that the king of the dwarves) in Tolkien’s text (in that, the term “king” is literally translated as “the king of the dwarves”). And, of course, you use English words in this context and your explanation of the meaning doesn’t make any sense! What I’m really wondering is why you don’t use any “King” in your book, or your reference to the Lord of the Rings “beyond the darkness” (which is ano바카라사이트ther translation of the English term “dark”).

The term “King” was translated as “master” (in English the verb master always means to possess, and there is no sense of lord meaning, for exa바카라mple:

“The Lord of the Rings… was an English writer of English and his author, the Englishman Jonathan Swift.”


The word king, of course, would have meaning in English and also means one who is ruling, one of the “great lords”. (That is where you come in with the English verb, since it does not mean “the ruler”)

Here’s the text in full:
