"So it was that Frodo saw her whom few mortals had yet seen; Arwen, daughter of Elrond, in whom it was said that the likeness of Lúthien had come on earth again; and she was called Undómiel, for she was the Evenstar of her people.."

We are joined by Tolkien expert extraordinaire Marilyn Pukkila to explore the way that Peter Jackson transformed the role of Arwen in his adaptation of the Lord of the Rings. This discussion spans the entire film trilogy, as well as historical fairy tale sources, as we unpack female characters and the concept of femininity in Tolkien's legendarium.
