Title : The Valkyrie Reflex in J.R.R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings": Galadriel, Shelob, Eowyn and Arwen" [Much of J. R. R. Tolkien's work reflects his life-long interest in Germanic literatures. Heroic women of Germanic myth and legend can be found reflected, directly or indirectly, in Galadriel, Arwen and Eowyn. Shelob can be seen as their opposite. Certain aspects of the depiction of these characters are based on the valkyries, with their good and bad aspects in myth. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
