: I have to do a paper in English on the themes of LOTM. I need about 4 themes and would greatly appreciate any help. Thanks- DQ

>> At the risk of reverting to my dry, English schoolgirl approach to English literature, these are some of the themes I would look at in LOTM
1) REVENGE (obviously)
2) KINSHIP (the Munros', the trio of guys)
3) GENDER ROLES (men rescuing girls etc etc!)
4) CONFLICT (the war, the interpersonal conflicts, societal conflicts - there's tons of conflict in this book!)
My advice would be to look for the simplest ideas that are prevalent in the book, and the paper will write itself, as there are so many subtle points to the story, you can't go wrong.
Good luck.
