His death does not follow the template of a sacric fi ial heroic death but is paradigmatic of the peacefula rs moriendi type of death. 3. Also, for Saruman’s death in which he appears briefly to be facing the West only to be blown away by winds coming from that direc tion, an event usually interpreted as the Valar rejecting Saruman’s return to Valinor, Amendt-Raduege points out that his being blown to the East could signal hope for him, since the East is the direction of new beginnings (i.e., Cuiviénen). * * * J.R.R.
