In the book The Hobbit by J.R.R Tolkien there are various of important events, text structures, and author’s craft moves that show significance throughout the book. Throughout the next paragraphs, I will be explaining how all these components add up to show complex themes, and why they are important. An important event that shows significance, is when Gandalf asks Bilbo to go on an adventure with him and the dwarfs. Even though Bilbo turns down Gandalf’s offer, he eventually comes around and goes on this adventure anyways; this is the beginning to how Bilbo develops into a hero. Now I’m thinking that the reason why this is the first event to Bilbo’s coming of age is because, even though Gandalf practically dragged Bilbo into this, in fact, he did, Bilbo still could’ve rejected his offer and refused to go, however, Bilbo goes on this adventure anyways.
J. K. Rowling grows in her skills as a writer during the Harry Potter book series. All of the books carry the same basic plot order with few exceptions, but the reason the writing gets better as the books go on is the character development and characterization with symbolism. In the first two books, the focus is on magic and world building whereas the third is about filling in details about the past; specifically about Harry’s father and his friends. Harry’s father, James, and his friends are Animagi and Rowling is careful to pick animals that represent their personalities and roles in the story. Remus Lupin arguably turns into the most dangerous animal out of all his friends especially since he can not control it, but to the audience he is meant to be seen as a character to feel pity and sympathy for.
Well the theory that every story follows the same structure was found by Joseph Campbell. It is said that his theory of the Hero’s Journey holds up against every story. The fact that every story can follow the same main plot is mind blowing. I will be further exploring the depths of a Hero’s Journey by seeing how the theory of a Monomyth story holds up against the television show called Dragon Ball Z. The Hero’s Journey is the theory that every story follows the same basic structure revolving around protagonist.
“I have chosen Mr. Baggins and that ought to be enough for all of you. If I say he is a Burglar, a Burglar he is, or will be when the time comes. There is a lot more in him than you guess, and a deal more than he has any idea of himself.” – Gandalf (The Hobbit, Ch. 1) Heroism, adventure, and development are key points when reading J. R. R. Tolkien’s, The Hobbit. Painfully naïve and content, Bilbo Baggins had the life-changing opportunity to advance from his comfort zone and into the mysterious and unknown world.
It is probably a fairly safe venture to state that when it comes to the Hallmark Network and Company, I tend to wholeheartedly support and promote practically everything associated with Hallmark. When it was announced this past summer that Hallmark was going to begin publishing books, I thought that was a fantastic idea, and I knew I wanted to do all I could to assist them in this new endeavor. Since Stacey Donovan is the director of Hallmark Publishing, I was honored to be able to speak with her earlier this year. She was kind enough to detail many elements regarding this new facet of Hallmark, and I am quite pleased to finally be able to share this chat with all of my readers. RH: Stacey, it 's so nice to connect with you.
For Narayan, the story is everything for Raj Rao it is a little more than a expediency. In Kanthapura the story is told from the witness-narrator point of view. The Serpent and the Rope because of its philosophical subject-matter requires a complicated and intellectual storyteller. As the theme is the knowledge of the self and the action takes place in the thought process and psyche of the superman, the narrative perspective is focused on him. The story of the novel, therefore, is opened from the protagonist narrator point of
And last but not least there are the new stories imagined by story-tellers. Mary Medlicott observes that in the case of children, the materials of the oral tradition have not only entertaining value, but also great educational potential . Elizabeth Cook underlines the same idea in saying: 'A grown-up understanding of life is incomplete without an understanding of myths, legends and fairy tales ' Fantastic literature draws much upon the ancient art of storytelling and the fairy and folk stories of the lore. Authors relied on these and transformed them into new tales, more fantastic, such as the works of Lewis or Tolkien or our contemporary J.K.Rowling. Much of the aim of these popular writers is to offer psychological and spiritual consolation, just as much of the children literature does, from The
The plot is shaped really well, as it leads critics to believe in that it was the author’s own experiences that had led him to such a thriller. The settings per chapter is changed due to their frequent change of location due to their journey, but I believe they had passed through places such as Misty Mountains, Rivendell, Lake-town, etc. The settings are creatively mapped out on the very start of the book and at the very end of the book, showing different angles of the world that is set in The Hobbit. Basically, in The Hobbit, Bilbo is firstly introduced as a home-lover, who was rather forced upon the role of the ‘Burglar’ and had been sent off on a quest for a dragon’s treasure, which was claimed to be stolen upon the record of history. They encounter many unexpected difficulties and near-death situations along the way, but the little troop of dwarves had shown him many sights of the world he’d never thought he would’ve
These were told and retold and were passed down from generation to generation and they show the knowledge and wisdom of early people. Narrative techniques are the methods that authors use to give certain artistic and emotional effects to a story. Although the term gets used loosely in everyday speech to talk about narrative, a “story” is just a sequence of events in time. Not until a writer chooses how to present that story in language does it become a “narrative.” Many key narrative techniques fall into four categories: plot, character, point of view, and style. Perhaps the fullest statement regarding the universality of narrative among humans is the opening to Roland
Acknowledgements The internship opportunity I had with Loft24 A/S was a great chance for applying theoretical knowledge and being useful for my future career.
