Minds@Work: Vickie Holtz-Wodzak presenting Rhetoric vs. Witness: Tolkien's Response to the Language of Conflict

In The Silmarillion, Feanor is “a master of words, and his tongue had great power over hearts when he would use it.” His words bring the Noldor to grief and inspire his sons to destructive oath-taking. Saruman is similarly a master of language, and “those who listened unwarily to that voice…all that it said seemed wise and reasonable, and desire awoke in them by swift agreement to seem wise themselves.” Even Gandalf comes close to abusing the power of language when he enables Bilbo to relinquish the Ring to Frodo.
