This page is a confused mixture of information from the books and things that happened in the movies and not in the books – with little if any identification of which is which. So many to go through the page and remove (or correct) all of the information that comes from the movie and put it down in a "Portrayal in Adaptations" section, replacing it with information from the books. - Gradivus, 05:05, January 10, 2013 (UTC)
As to Cousin Hal's siting, the North Moors sound an unlikely place for Entwives. Fatidiot1234 05:14, December 25, 2009 (UTC)
The Man Whom the Trees Loved Edit
I wonder, perhaps, if "The Man Whom the Trees Loved" by Algernon Blackwood, published in Pan's Garden in 1912 was one of, if not the, main inspiration for Tolkien's Ents and the trees they shepherd. Here's the quote in question:
- 'I wonder, by Jove, I wonder,' his thoughts ran on, 'whether a tree—er—in any lawful meaning of the term can be—alive. I remember some writing fellow telling me long ago that trees had once been moving things, animal organisms of some sort, that had stood so long feeding, sleeping, dreaming, or something, in the same place, that they had lost the power to get away. . . !'
This is rather more specific than "the talking trees of many of the world's folklores", seems to fit better with Tolkien's vision, and was published at such a time that Tolkien may well have read it. --xensyriaT 16:05, September 25, 2012 (UTC)
I was watching the Two Towers where the Ents attack Isengard and bust up laughing when I saw one of the Ents (the one on fire) dip his head in the flood to put out the fire. It was hilarious! Azaisya (talk) 23:51, April 26, 2013 (UTC)
