Baffled by Bombadil — 1 Comment

  1. Tom Bombadil seems to be a play on Cernunnon, or Herne and an
    anthropomorphism of the Green Man, Nature.
    I think it’s a difficult concept to get over to an Irish kid for our sagas have been Homer-ised where people are on the landscape rather than of it. But we have the Fir Bolg and the earlier movements brought to us through the Lebor Gabála Érenn. Itself a bit of propaganda.
