I was not being critical of Tolkien, or by any means accusing him of plagiarism. He created a unique and complicated (perhaps overly complicated) fantasy world. I just had never been aware of how much he drew on the Old Norse legends described in that program. Unlike the original legends where the Norse Gods went into the battle at the end of the world knowing that they would lose, in Tolkien the good guys won. I like a happy ending.
