As I was writing my fanfic, it occurred to me that Hannibal never quotes people! All his allusions I can think of come from history, mythology, or culture. He always derives from that pool of collective unconscious. If we occasionally hear a name from him, it's someone like Nietzsche, more a myth than a man. How would you read this? Hannibal doesn't respect authorities? :)

I’d say Nietzsche was definitely a man! He just wrote about myths is all.

I’m intrigued by your observation but I can’t say I’ve noticed it myself! In my fics I have Hannibal literary referencing left and right, whoops. On the show his speech is often very heightened and allusive, and he references not only cool nature facts, psychological concepts, and unattributed aphorisms of biblical/mythological origin, but he also gets way more esoteric and specific than what’s in the collective unconscious. 

Some examples! 

  • Hannibal directly quotes Stravinsky to Alana: “A true composer thinks about his unfinished work the whole time; he’s not always conscious of this, but he’s aware of it when he suddenly knows what to do.” 
  • He references Goethe twice in Season 3once indirectly to Bedelia, “I was rooting for Mephistopheles and contemptuous of Faust,” itself a Thomas Harris line, and once directly to Will, “Two souls, alas, dwell in my breast and one is striving to forsake its brother.” 
  • He performs a close reading of the ending of Plato’s Phaedo for Bella: “Upon taking his own life, Socrates offered a rooster to Asclepius, the god of healing, to pay his debt. To Socrates, death was not a defeat, but a cure.” 
  • And he quotes Blake, of course, to Dolarhyde: “Did he who made the Lamb make thee?” 
  • Then there’s the Red Dragon movie line that never made it to air on the TV show but fandom loves it anyway, “Our scars have the power to remind us that the past was real,” which is a Cormac McCarthy quote originally.  

Plus Hannibal recites Dante in the original Italian on command! 

Safe to say Hannibal is a Western canon sorta guy. He’s well-versed in that body of knowledge and isn’t afraid to show it; it greases the wheels for him socially, aligning him with the sophisticated and powerful, while also speaking to his sense of what is aesthetically pleasing and meaningful. Hannibal may have a puckish and contemptuous view of authority, but he is forever impressed by the heights of human achievement, and you can see that in the extent of his reading and knowledge.

Thranduil's (Mis)Characterization in tBotFA

I’m going to leave the whole necklace nonsense out of this post, because that’s a whole other discussion. But in general I completely agree that movie!Thranduil’s characterization was very different from book!Thranduil. In fact, it’s probably the most extreme change made in the whole trilogy… (not counting the addition of a whole new character, lol.)

For those who haven’t read the book, Thranduil’s characterization in Desolation of Smaug was pretty much spot-on. But when he arrives in Dale after Smaug’s death, we see a real transformation. Basically, Thranduil in Mirkwood was just a pissy king at home. But Thranduil giving aid to the men of Laketown and (reluctantly) preparing for war is a king in his prime, doing his duty to his people and the region. Instead, movie!Thranduil never really makes it out of that pissy stage (not counting a couple nice conversations with his wayward elf children after the battle.) For the visual learners, see the chart below (red line is the movie, blue line is the book.)

I’m disappointed by this, but not at all surprised. Because the movie needed the antagonistic war-monger to counter Thorin. In the book, this part is played by Bard, who’s angry at the destruction of his town, looking to become king, and angry at the dwarves hoarding their treasure. So, in a weird way, Bard and Thranduil’s characterizations in the movie were sort of flipped, with Thranduil being eager for war, and Bard looking for peaceful solutions. What should have been is most beautifully summarized in this passage:

“Fools!” laughed Bard, “to come thus beneath the Mountain’s arm! They do not understand war above ground, whatever they may know of battle in the mines. There are many of our archers and spearmen now hidden in the rocks upon their right flank. Dwarfmail may be good, but they will soon be hard put to it. Let us set on them now from both sides, before they are fully rested!”

But the Elvenking said: “Long will I tarry, ere I begin this war for gold. The dwarves cannot press us, unless we will, or do anything that we cannot mark. Let us hope still for something that will bring reconciliation.”

So why the change? I guess you’d have to ask Peter Jackson to be sure, but my guess is just that they just decided to go with a simpler (if unfaithful) path for Thranduil’s character. And while Lee Pace played his part oh so well, there’s still a part of me that mourned for the wise and mature Thranduil we should have seen.
