A far-fetched Trilogy, one of the unsurpassed fantasy tales to come out, more solicitous , more pragmatic, post modern fantasy, prototypical fantasy of 20th century, there is indubitably Tolkien's ‘The Lord of the Rings'. The Lord of the Rings has received mixed reviews since its inception, ranging from appalling to admirable. Recent reviews in various media have been, in a majority, highly positive and Tolkien's literary achievement is slowly being accredited as a significant one. The first part of Tolkien's ‘The Hobbit' is followed by ‘The Lord of the Rings', both have the Hobbits as its protagonists and carries a very old chronicle with the eminence of antiquity. ‘The Lord of the Rings' registers all the persona of a magical land with all its mysteries as mysteries are often a habitual part of fantasy. The Hero, King(s), the Warrior and the Wizard are quite palpable and map easily and directly to Jung's “standard” archetypal images. It has a lot to hollow out since it is rich in myth and mysteries. The Lord of the Rings was written with a backdrop of war, yet one of the most significant ramifications for Tolkien and is the best epic high fantasy novel.
