You can tell a fairytale like The Three little pigs, but without conflict it won 't be a very good story. The same thing applies to all stories. Conflict, is a key role in making a story and Hobbit is no exception. That 's why in this book there are several conflicts that make the story interesting, and better.Three important conflicts in The Hobbit are the conflict between Bilbo 's Baggins and Tookish side, his struggle against Gollum, and when Bilbo and the dwarves tried to get through Mirkwood. The first conflict we come upon is Bilbo 's struggle between his cautious and adventurous side.
It makes his whole hero’s journey worth it. This moment of reunion and redemption of a family is why self-preservation and motivation are so key to life. A person has not grown until they have experienced loss, and when life balances once again, it is held in the palm of a changed man. The Odyssey is one of the greatest examples in the literature of a hero’s journey. A hero must endure test against their flaws, discover the heart of their journey, and finally, after all their suffering, they must redeem what they left behind.
Grendel’s mom payed Herot a visit to get revenge for her son, killing men in their sleep. Beowulf showed bravery going down to the cave to fight Grendel’s mom after this. Beowulf entered her layer, he had no men with him, just himself. He found himself getting justice for the kingdoms people, face to face with the water demon. Beowulf showed strength as he fought a battle that seemed no end.
This showed his responsibility because he didn’t give up when they were caught, he explored his options and eventually found a way to save everyone. Something else that the hobbit did was helping the dwarves escape from the spiders. He had his ring of invisibility on at this time also, and had to untangle all the dwarves from the spider webs. Bilbo achieved doing this by distracting the spiders with songs and calling them, “Attercops.” The most responsible thing Bilbo did was he took over when Gandalf left. He is even told by Gandalf, “There was always more about you than anyone expected,”(274).
He goes on many adventures with Gandalf and the Burglars and as time goes on we see clues of him enjoying them more than he lets on. In chapter 5, he engages in riddle contest with Gollum in order to stay alive. Before his adventures began he would have looked down upon foolishness as such. Now, he seems to enjoy it. It also show how he has a side of cunning and strength.
Leo has a loyal band of friends he will look up to and care for, and they will protect him and work together to accomplish their goal. In conclusion, The Lost Hero, by Rick Riordan, states the adventure of Jason, Piper, and Leo to save Hera. He finds the bravery within himself to face something no matter what the means. Leo faces his old memories and uses them as motivation to make things better as he goes on. Finally, he shows his powers of fire and building by capturing a dragon and using it to his team’s advantage.
As the fire dragon approaches him, the iron shield “began to melt, and for the first time in his life that famous prince fought with fate against him, with glory denied him” (lines 110-113). When realizing fate is against him in this battle, a little piece of Beowulf dies. Although, right after his shield begins to melt Beowulf still fights with that power and bravery he has always had since he was young. “He knew it, but he raised his sword and struck at the dragon’s scaly hide” (lines
Bilbo really had no choice and went along with the adventure where they faced trials. Fighting trolls, meeting unusual people, and having illusions of food since the dwarves were starving while soon fighting giant spiders that were trying to eat them. These were some of the most outrageous challenges that Bilbo and the dwarves had to face. But their real goal was to get the Arkenstone from dwarf lands guarded by a deadly dragon. Smaug, the dragon that attacked these lands and killed most of the population of dwarves to claim that land as his own, then comes into play and gives the group a difficult time by trying to eat them and burning them to ashes; since Bilbo decided to take a golden cup.
When Beowulf approaches Hrothgar and offers to kill Grendel, he is already a very very skillful warrior who has (accomplished or gained with effort) many feats, and he is a hero to the people. Later in life, Beowulf changes from a young warrior to a wise king who later dies in order to save the people of his kingdom from an (imaginary, huge, fire-breathing animal). The extreme danger of the job is illustrated through the fact that Hrothgar 's own men 's tries to kill Grendel have been useless/pointless. Beowulf displays great courage in not only eliminating Grendel but his mother also. Though the dangers Beowulf faces become more and more extreme, he does not turn away from them or run (away
“He picked us out from the army deliberately, honoured us and judged us fit for this action, made me these lavish gifts- and all because he considered us the best of his arms-bearing thanes” (Beowulf 179). Wiglaf eventually aides Beowulf in the slaying of the dragon and even though Beowulf’s sword fails him in battle against the dragon, Beowulf protects Wiglaf and ultimately ends up
Beowulf battles monsters like Grendel who triumph his size and devour men who nobly fought in battle. The odds seem unlikely for a regular man; however, Beowulf is not like most men. Another trait of Beowulf includes his loyalty to his friends and family. Beowulf leaves his country to travel to an unknown land to defeat a monster who could kill him. He has the loyalty to this country which he has not even stepped foot on it.
Then, Beowulf gathers up enough strength to inflict a deadly stab to the dragon’s stomach. The text dictates: “They had killed the enemy, courage quelled his life; / that pair of kinsmen, partners in nobility, / had destroyed the foe. So every man should act, / be at hand when needed; but now, for the king, / this would be the last of many labors / and triumphs in the world” (2706-2711). With this statement in mind, it is indisputable that the symbolization of this onslaught consists of how no one can ever gain immortality; even the finest people must meet their end. To reemphasize, it is clear to see that Beowulf’s last and final dispute holds the utmost preponderance due to the fact that the dragon is able to kill him at
Simon represented good in a man. He indeed was a nice guy on the island. Before the boys mistakenly killed Simon, Simon was running back to the tribe to tell everyone that the beast everyone thinks of is just a dead body of a paratrooper whose shadow would form a beast shape because of wind throughout the day. Shockingly, Jack felt that it was a need for him to eliminate Simon so that in the end, evilness could take possession over everyone, including the island without any interference from
Bilbo finally evolves into a brave hero and fits in with the dwarf party. Chapter eight shows Bilbo freeing himself by cutting down a spider web and described feeling different about himself. He then goes on to name his sword as many legendary heros have before which shows qualities of heroism and leadership. He also expresses his bravery and intelligence in chapter nine by devising a plan to get the party out to Esgoroth. Last but certainly not least Bilbo discovers how to use the key to get to the great dragon Smaug.
Though the dragon managed to kill Beowulf in time from a bite that was poisonous, one his most loyal knights slayed the dragon and after retrieving the treasure he kept it hidden. Beowulf tells Wiglaf to build him barrow where people will remember him by. He was one of the bravest knights putting himself in danger over people he didn 't know, and later honoring his word to the king. In each battle he fought he made things as equal for his opponent as himself. He was the true meaning of a chivalric Knight.
