“I am No Man” Doesn’t Cut It: The Story of Eowyn
Tolkien 's The Lord of the Rings. She is a noblewoman of Rohan who calls herself a shieldmaiden. This fulfils the Macbeth -like prophecy that he would not be killed by a man. The critic David Day considers Tolkien's a better solution than Shakespeare 's. When she was only seven years old, her father was killed fighting orcs , and her mother died of grief. She longed to win renown in battle—especially since she was royal—but being female, her duties were reckoned to be at Edoras.
In The Return of the King , she disguises herself as a man and, under the alias of Dernhelm from Old English dern meaning "secret, concealed"  , travels with the Riders of Rohan to the battle outside Minas Tirith in Gondor , carrying with her the hobbit Meriadoc Brandybuck on her horse Windfola, who has also been ordered to remain behind. The Witch-King threatens that he will "bear thee away to the houses of lamentation, beyond all darkness, where thy flesh shall be devoured, and thy shrivelled mind be left naked to the Lidless Eye".
But no living man am I! You look upon a woman. You stand between me and my lord and kin. Begone, if you be not deathless! For living or dark undead, I will smite you, if you touch him. Then, as her sword shatters, his withering form collapses and he vanishes with a final cry of anguish. I will be a shieldmaiden no longer, nor vie with the great Riders, nor take joy only in the songs of slaying. I will be a healer, and love all things that grow and are not barren.
Later, however, he decided against it because Aragorn was "too old and lordly and grim. The Tolkien critic David Day writes that Tolkien particularly disliked Shakespeare 's treatment of myth, and must have resolved to do better. The feminist effect is spoiled, Griffin notes, when her story ends according to Tolkien's text, not the film with her disavowing battle and marrying Faramir to live "happily every after".
Uma Thurman was slated for the role at one point. The script doctor's advice was ignored. Young suggests this was because the screenwriters feared the audience would misinterpret the scene. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article is about The Lord of the Rings character.

The attention to detail, the shout outs to uber nerds with Silmarillion refs, the way Legolas jumps up on that horse in The Two Towers. It takes skill to adapt a work that was clearly never intended for film and make it compelling visually without losing the core of the story. I doubt very much I could have let go enough of my own feelings about it to do it proper justice.
