I like the idea posted by someone in this forum that elves` souls are an

integral part of the forest. They may or may not be communable, but they

are a part of the trees (or forest). It combines the loss of the land with

desacration to explain the sidhe resentment and animus.

Tolkien`s next world was very Celtic, and so fits BR in several respects.
