    • 2003: Walter Scheps, "The Fairy-tale Morality of The Lord of the Rings", in Jared Lobdell (ed.), A Tolkien Compass
      [...] and that fine young ent Quickbeam is merely a minor crux in an Old English glossary (the name Quickbeam means 'living tree' in Old English).
    • 2003: Colin Duriez, Tolkien and C. S. Lewis: The Gift of Friendship
      Tolkien's Treebeard, his Ent creation, was inspired by Lewis, especially his sometimes emphatic deep voice
    • 2003: Ralph C. Wood, The Gospel According to Tolkien: Visions of the Kingdom in Middle-earth
      Tolkien perhaps speaks for himself when he has Treebeard confess that "nobody cares for the woods as I care for them," and when this same Ent also warns that "the withering of all woods may be drawing near"
