He was not alone in his undertaking. A hero archetype always has supernatural help and Frodo got his from the Gandalf who helped keep him safe during his journey; he also had supernatural help from Elrond who healed him after he got stabbed by a Ringwraith. He proved himself a worthy hero many times during his journey, by surviving the stabbing from the Ringwraith, by surviving being skewered by the troll in the caves of Moria, and by resisting the growing influence of the ring. He could have chosen to take the ring for himself and give up destroying it all together, but he did not. He could have delivered the ring to Sauron so that he could relieve himself of the enormous burden and responsibility of being ring bearer, but he did not. He chose to trudge on through dangerous forests, rugged mountains, deep dark caves, while evading and surviving attacks from orcs, trolls, the Urukhai, goblins, Ringwraiths, and other villains sent by Sauron and Saruman. A hero archetype usually suffers an unhealable wound. Frodo suffered such wound in the hands of a Ringwraith. As Elrond later said to Gandalf, Frodo’s wound would never really heal. And beyond the wound that he suffered, the trauma and the burden of his perilous journey will stay with him for years to come.
Frodo’s experiences are universal to mankind because they portray very real and very human struggles. Beyond the wizards, the elves, the orcs, the goblins, and other mythological characters in the movie, is our personal struggle between good and evil. We constantly face moral and ethical dilemmas in our lives, and there is no real need to go through cataclysmic events in order to overcome these dilemmas. Frodo’s need to destroy the ring can relate to humanity’s struggle to destroy evil. This struggle is often seen in our wars, our fight against terrorism and tyranny, our battles with power-grabbing and scheming

” (Toy story 3 2010). For Europeans, film was primarily used for political purposes. Americans, on the other hand used film as a consumer product. Metaphorically, films have served as the “American Dream” linking issues through cinema to commercial gain (Toth 2009).
Though definitely a drama, The Lord of the Rings ensures that it develops characters that allow for comedic moments, and its protagonist, Frodo, walks the line between heroic and normal in a way that makes him incredibly approachable and respectable simultaneously.
This paper will seek to establish how Frodo is a hero archetype and how his experiences are universal to humankind. It will also elucidate how a model Frodo is that people can be familiar and handle the colossal and often baffling undertaking of being human.
He explains his desire to create new myths as coming from a strong wish not to keep retelling the myths that had already been told. In creating new myths, Tolken invented new languages and built the cultures and myths around the new languages that he had created.
This paper examines some of the differences between Tolkien’s epic and Jackson’s adaptation to analyze whether or not the movie seems to be faithful to Tolkien’s original. The scenes chosen for this study, which focuses on changes between the book and the movie, are the following: the fight at Weathertop, Arwen’s rescue of Frodo when he is stabbed, Aragorn and Arwen’s meeting at Rivendell, and Pippin’s knocking the skeleton into the well in the Mines of Moria.
Not often does a viewer leave the theater with a light feeling that the film seen is truly faithful to the literary work it has brought to the widescreen.
However, it is understandable that despite the best efforts a filmmaker exerts in making the adapted movie he or she is working on to be as faithful to the work it is based on as possible, true faithfulness is nearly impossible.
