The Scottish symbol is the Thistle, along with thewearing of tartans.
SCIAPOD: In Greco-Roman and medieval legends, sciapods or monopods were one-legged humanoids that lived in exotic locations like Africa or the Orient. C.S. Lewis's Dufflers in Voyage of The Dawn Treader are a re-creation of them, but this time they are invisible transformed dwarves.
This symbolized the last minute thinking on the side of Robert.
SUBCREATION: In J.R.R. Tolkien's contribution to Essays Presented to Charles Williams, Tolkien introduces the idea of subcreation as an artistic and theological concept. Like Milton in Paradise Lost, Tolkien sees God as allowing his lesser creations to contribute to the larger shaping of the universe. That is, humans can act as "subcreators" working under God to extend or enlarge the cosmic creation of God. On the most basic level, while God builds the universe, he leaves humans free to build their own lives within that universe, their own small contribution to the collective artwork. We can strive to create something closer to heaven on earth, or we can choose to create something closer to hell. This human choice is the most basic level of subcreation--an inescapable level separate from any artistic talent in Milton's thinking.
More loosely, Tolkien relies on structural twinning or duplication to create parallels such as doubles, conflicting aspects of personality, and through The Lord of the Rings, even if the oppositions are not essentially necessary to define each other in strict structuralist terms. Marjorie Burns notes several examples of this. For "doubles," she points to the similar roles Goldberry and Galadriel play in their respective domains. Minas Tirith and Minas Morgol, the two towers echo each other. For conflicting aspects of personality, Burns shows how Tolkien creates oppositions between the staid Baggins and the adventurous Took sides of Frodo's family, showing a split or internal division in Frodo himself. A more schizophrenic split between Sméagol and Gollum serve as manifestations of his split desires. For foils, she points to the way Gandalf contrasts with the Balrog in Moria. There, he declares himself a "servant of the secret fire" and a "wielder of the flame of Anor," but he faces his opposite in the Balrog, "the flame of Udûn," a "worker of dark fire." Trolls and Ents serve as opposites for each other, and both Trolls and Ents in their massive size serve as foils to the little people of the hobbits during battle scenes. Boromir and Farmir contrast, with Boromir being proud and rash in his desire for glory while Faramir is "wiser, more restrained, and more peaceable," and so forth. For extended discussion, see Burns' entry on "double" in Drout 127-128).
A voice said, "Some say thereare three ways of unfolding the world.
Claude Leví-Strauss and other structuralists proved especially influential in cultural studies, literary theory, and interpretation of mythology. A common approach to understanding narrative structure in folklore and stories is to use structuralism. We might, for instance, apply it to Tolkien's Silmarillion, noting the connections of the Valar and the Maiar in relationship to Ilúvatar, and how Melkor is defined completely by his rebellion against Ilúvatar while the Valar are defined completely by their obedience to him, and so forth. Oppositional binaries in the creation account there rely on opposites for contrast (hot versus cold) just as in the Old Testament creation story, oppositional binaries between light/dark or land/sea or male/female only have existence because they appear in contrasting pairs, and so forth.
