Bilbo escapes being captured by killing the spider that was attacking him. Bilbo kills the spider with a sword and says, “I will give you a name, and I shall call you Sting” (154). With Sting and his ring, Bilbo sets off to save his friends. Bilbo slips on his ring when he became close to the spiders. He decides to try and lure them away from where they had the dwarves hanging from a tree branch.
He becomes a hero when he: helped the dwarves escape the jail, then he put everyone in a barrel to go down the river, and then he fought the spiders. First, Bilbo helped the dwarves escape from jail. When the dwarves got caught he put on the ring. After he put on the ring he followed the dwarves to the jail. He sent a message from Thorin to the dwarves not to reveal their mission to the Elvenking.
Which brings me to my next point, Bilbo 's desire for adventure has definitely changed. In the first chapter Gandalf had to push Bilbo outside the door. In chapter two, when the company saw the light of the trolls, they said to Bilbo, “Now it is the burglar 's turn, you must go on and find out all about that light…” Meaning that Bilbo was peer pressured into going to see what it was. By the end Bilbo is much more comfortable taking risks. He makes his own plans (helping the dwarfs escape the wood elf 's dungeon) and is talking a dangerous creature (Gollum and
Campbell, author of The Hero with a Thousand Faces, and Winkler believe after the hero’s departure, they are faced with a trial or many trails to overcome when they finally meet their biggest enemy, “The hero undergoes a series of trials often on a perilous journey.” (Campbell) Bilbo’s first trial is after Bilbo escapes from Gollum which he is reunited with the dwarves and are surrounded by Wargs but after it seems all hope is lost, eagles swoop down and save the adventures before it is too late. In Mirkwood, the dwarves and Bilbo are starving when they get captured by spiders, and Bilbo has to save them, “Bilbo saw that the moment had come when he must do something.”(Tolkien 64) Bilbo escapes by himself and then finds the dwarves trapped and defenseless against a mob of spiders which Bilbo has to defeat by calling them names, and angering them until Bilbo has unraveled the dwarves. Bilbo’s third trial is finding a way for the dwarves to escape the wood-elves palace. When the guard is drunk, Bilbo lets the dwarves out by stealing the keys and pushing the dwarves into barrels. After a hero’s many trials, they face their ultimate enemy, and for Bilbo that is Smaug, the dragon.
Meanwhile, Simon was on the mountain discovering that the beast wasn’t real. When he went to tell the others, they thought he was the beast, and they attacked and killed him. These events are all the result of one common feeling. In chapter 9 of Lord of the Flies, William Golding employs
Smaug is very evil and irrational. We see Smaug’s “true colors” when he attacks the village of Lake-Town(Esgaroth) in revenge of the theft of the Arkenstone. We also see if evil continue when Goblins, elves, wargs, men, and dwarves overtake the lonely mountain to battle for the possession of the treasure. When Bilbo Baggins enters the lair, with his ring, and he comes upon Smaug sleeping on top of the treasure. He spots
Bilbo and his friends were sleeping out said and the goblins found them and took him to their king. The goblins were bigger then them and the kind was june meris. The gobblings started singing a song about eating them. Then the wizard Gandalf came and got their swords and weapons back and they fault the goblins and won. I couldt have never done that i would have played dead.

He takes a trip to Pandora with hopes of negotiating the Navi to relocate their home in order for the humans to access the valuable minerals underneath their deep-rooted home tree. Jake falling in love with Neytiri in Pandora results in him failing to complete the mission and aides the Navi, causing an ongoing war between the humans and the Navi. James Cameron uses personification, anaphora, and emotional appeal to show the re-occurring theme of the Navi’s true humanity. As Neytiri saves Jake in Pandora, she kills one of the wolves saying “Forgive me, my brother… May your spirit run with the Great Mother” (Cameron). Personification is being showed in this scene to
