      But isn't that the idea--to get people to consider, and perhaps redefine,
      what we mean by 'heroic virtue'? Perhaps even what we mean by 'holiness'? In this
      context, Tolkien may not have lived a life of heroic virtue (that is not for
      me to judge) but he certainly has played a major role in defining it for the
      21st century.
