Abstract: This research discusses metaphor language in J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel entitled “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.” Here the writer studies the novel as the unit of analysis. The theory of metaphor and figurative language that developed by Lakoff and Richards combined by the theory of logic by Tarski are used as the theoretical framework of the research. Moreover, the method of data collection is descriptive qualitative, which tries to explain plainly about metaphor language that captured from the novel. The first step is collected the corpus of metaphors, then, followed by classify them into types or kinds of metaphor. After finishing the process of classification, the writer focuses on analyzing those corpuses. From all the steps, then, the goal that the writer wants to find is to understand the meaning of those languages figuratively. By referring to the discussions, finally, the writer concludes that the novel presents many kinds of metaphorical language. It proclaims that with using logic, metaphor cannot be understood directly and literally, the problem of anomaly and contradiction makes the interpretation of metaphor more complicated. Somehow, it must be understood through unveiling of the metaphor itself.
