The Hobbit; A Most Unexpected Journey In a hobbit hole, in The Hill, in Hobbiton, in the Shire, in Middle-Earth, sat a hobbit named Bilbo. Bilbo started off a safe hobbit, unknowing of the adventures that lay ahead of him. One afternoon, twelve hobbits and a wizard came over for a party that he didn’t know about. Two years later, he had outwitted a slimy creature, battled giant spiders, earned a share of a mountain full of treasure, and learned more than anyone in Hobbiton could teach him. He was taught perseverance, courage, trust, and generosity throughout this epic journey.
In “The Hobbit” by J.R.R. Tolkien we hear about Bilbo’s great adventures. On Bilbo’s great journey he gains many spiritual treasures. Bilbo gains self-confidence, loyalty, courage, compassion, and selflessness. Bilbo also dealt with hardships, failures, and accomplishments.
But near the end of the novel shortly before his death, a major change occurs in him. He begins to understand the value of others and right before he dies, he tells Bilbo, “Farewell, good thief…I go now to the halls of waiting to sit beside my fathers, until the world is renewed. Since I leave now all gold and silver, and go where it is of little worth, I wish to part in friendship from you, and I would take back my words and deeds at the Gate”(Tolkien, 290). Bilbo inspires Thorin to change by being an example of a brave, selfless hero. Also, through all of the times Bilbo steps up and defends their party, Thorin and the others watch, amazed while the hobbit continually proves himself.
The book The Hobbit tells the story of an anxious little hobbit, who, throughout the story, progresses to be a hero and a leader who shows bravery and strength and earns the respect of his comrades. There are two prominent themes in this story, one being that bravery comes in all shapes and sizes, and two is that it’s good to try new things. Bilbo’s confidence and strength stem at the beginning of the story in his hobbit hole, and to the end when he and the dwarves defeat the mighty dragon Smaug. When Bilbo first shows signs of interest in joining the dwarves on their adventure, his whole world opens up. When Bilbo outsmarts Gollum, he is proud and strong.
That by itself is a very brave thing for a Hobbit to do, but it does not stop there. He rescues the Dwarves from becoming the supper of hungry spiders, he saves them from an Elven King, and he even steals from a dragon. When he found The Ring, he could have simply ran away. He could have crawled back into his Hobbit hole, made himself a cup of tea, and tried to pretend none of it ever happened. Instead, he went back to the Dwarves, kept his word, and helped them retrieve their treasure.
With lines of abnormal and naughty mountains and thick woods where mythical people and mammoth bugs experience The Hobbit world is unquestionably outlandish; with the wealth of a few different animals and monsters the universe of The Hobbit is likewise very otherworldly and mysterious. The Hobbit demonstrates that it utilizes the written work structure of the dream kind by being set in a supernatural land loaded with colorful animals and landforms which are the components of an ordinary dream
In this sense, we can assert Bilbo is tangible character despite of he represents linear life as we have and, for this reason, he is J.R.R Tolkien representation in the novel. Linearity of The Hobbit is not a innovatory narrative element, but it is present in every written text. Linear narration has been used from different ways to discover more things about
The Hobbit is about events that will most likely never happen. Giants playing catch with a bolder, fighting monsters and slaying dragons. There are small differences as well like in The Hobbit the author is purposely making Bilbo go through the Hero 's Journey. In A Long Way Gone the boy does not realize that he was going through a Hero 's Journey, nor was it his plan to go through all of that. This is a smaller difference.
When Tolkien, against all the expectations, managed to start doing so, he realized that he was being swallowed by this “reality” and that he could not go back easily, which led him to ascribe similar fate to his protagonist, the hobbit. Bilbo eventually overcomes all the obstructions and gets back home, where he can live the most ordinary life which had never satisfied him before. It is likely to assume, looking from our perspective, that it displays Tolkien’s hope. Writers really can get the feeling that
