Symboliek van Tolkien's In de ban van de ring (Dutch: Symbolism of Tolkien's The Lord of the Rings) is a Dutch-language book by Mellie Uyldert. The book was first published in 1974, shortly after Tolkien's death and well before publication of any secondary works, which shows in its content. Though it gained several reprints in the seventies, it has now been out of print for decades.

[edit] Content

The book's content is heavily contested, and because it was a product of the Age of Innocence, usually thrown aside. Uyldert, an astrologist and practitioner of alternative medicine, frequently allowed for her own opinions to take over the work, and completely missed the point by stating that Middle-earth was based on Ireland, the land in which Tolkien had supposedly spent his childhood years.
