J.R.R.Tolkien:”The dwarves remind of the Jews”

John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, the author of  The Lord of the Rings, said during the 1971 interview: “I didn’t intend it, but when you’ve got these people on your hands, you’ve got to make them different, haven’t you? The dwarves of course are quite obviously, wouldn’t you say that in many ways they remind you of the Jews? Their words are Semitic, obviously, constructed to be Semitic. The hobbits are just rustic English people. ”
