The Lord of the Rings in a Jungian Perspective
Karlstad University, Division for Culture and Communication.

Abstract [en]

The Lord of the Rings can be read as an interior journey through the psyche as Jung describes it. There are Jungian concepts like individuation, archetypes like the shadow, the devouring mother, the anima, the hero and the wise old man. The reader also recognizes concepts from Jungian psychoanalysis and several of Jung´s symbols. Evidently Tolkien and Jung have much in common as they both deal with matters that many people can relate to.
