DIfferent Points of View
I think today's Council of Elrond exercise was very instrumental in helping solidify the characters of the books. There are many different characters throughout the books with their own unique points of view, and it may be hard to keep them all straight. Going through each character's motivations really helps to better understand their actions later in the story as well as better appreciate Tolkien's works of art. He really took the time to craft each character with their own personality, motivation, and quirks. I think it is really cool that there are little to no stock characters in the books.
