Glaurung - Father of Dragons

Nienor and Glaurung - John Howe
"BAD dragon! How many times must I tell you NOT to roast villagers?"

Funny thing - talk and pictures of dragons are much more synthesizing for me than psycho-babble. Give me Smaug or Glaurung and I'm on solid ground.

I was a Jungian analysand, not a mere reader of his CW. Yet J. R. R. Tolkien understood far more and more deeply than the Swiss keeper of the collective unconscious menagerie.
