Insights on Tom Bombadil

One of the greatest disappointments for LOTR fans in the movies was the absence of Tom Bombadil. The movie makers decided that he did not move "the story" forward, so he never even made it into a draft of the screenplay. I admit to loving that part of the story, but wondering why it was there.

I think Matt Anderson at Mere Orthodoxy may have solved the riddle of Tom Bombadil. It's a long literary post, but if you love LOTR, its worth the energy and effort.
