Lots of the good characteristics Bilbo gained during the journey are learned from Thorin. This helps us understand how Thorin guides Bilbo to become a hero. Bilbo starts off with as a boring character, but by comparing Thorin and Bilbo together, we will eventually pay more attention to Bilbo as a character. (Connnection between previous sentence and this)Thorin is the perfect model of an ancient hero. He was born into royalty, he is a subject of a prophecy, his parents are long gone, and he is going on a quest, and since the hobbit is set in a world where there’s magic, we assume Thorin is the hero.
At first I hadn’t noticed this but then, when I really started to think about Bilbo in the beginning of the book, I started to realize that this fitted him perfectly. I thought at first that Bilbo seemed more of a hero because he was the one who came up with all the plans and ultimately took back the cave for the dwarves. What I hadn’t noticed was that in the beginning, Bilbo did not choose to take part in this quest and was subconsciously dragged into it therefore making him the reluctant hero. One theme that I found that related to this is that in order to experience new things, you need to come out of your comfort zone. This compares to Smaug who is the complete opposite of a reluctant hero.
Can one item impact you and make you become brave or even self-confident? I think something can. Something as small as a ring or as big as a sword can make you feel braver or more self-confident. In The Hobbit, these ideas are throughout the entire story. Sting and the ring are important as symbols because they represent Bilbo becoming a hero; he shows bravery and self-confidence which are very important ideas in the story.
Bilbo seized the ring but did not destroy it. Instead, he became tempted by it and kept it for himself. Some may claim that Bilbo’s greed for the ring made him not a hero but this point is invalid because all heroes make mistakes. One mistake does not make someone evil or not a hero. In conclusion, Bilbo was a hero; Bilbo exemplified honor, Bilbo exhibited bravery, and Bilbo embodied
The Real Model Boy In The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain, Tom Sawyer makes many mistakes but what 's important is that he progresses from them. In life you have two choices, you can lie or tell the truth. At the beginning of the book, Tom thought you needed to lie to get ahead in life, but as the book continued, he learned telling the truth is always better. He went through many schemes and adventures and ran away. When he returned, he realized that things didn 't change and he still faced the same problems.
In my opinion, a hero is someone that takes risks when faced with a problem and helps others in the goodness of their hearts. Not to mention a hero is also someone who can give strength to others and save someone who is in danger.But how do these “hero’s” become this way? Are they born with their “powers” or are they shaped into heroes by their allies? In the story, The Hobbit Bilbo learns to become a hero’s only by the journey he takes and the choices he makes. Hero’s that learn to become a hero along the way don’t have an unusual birth.
Firstly, Bilbo conflicts with his own personality when he decides to go with the dwarves and changes from being homely to being more adventurous. Then, he conflicts with the spiders in Mirkwood and changes from being honest to being more deceitful. Lastly, he conflicts with his own fears on his way towards smaug where he evolves from being non-confrontational to being more brave. Thus, the purpose of the novel is to show that through conflict, a person can change unexpectedly, resulting in a positive outcome. Bilbo’s very first unexpected change in the novel is when he leaves with the dwarves.
Bilbo’s Transformation/Maturation Some people say that people never change, while others believe that if given the chance, they will. In this case, J.R.R. Tolkien gives the character Bilbo Baggins the chance to change dramatically in his book The Hobbit. Bilbo undergoes many significant changes in his personality as a result of engaging in Gandalf's journey with the dwarves. The most important transformations include Bilbo going from fearful to brave, from being questioned to respected and from being helpless to resourceful.
