At this point in the story, Bilbo realizes that he does have courage within himself, and gains the confidence to carry on. Bilbo shows even more bravery by being the one with enough courage to go and check out Smaug in the first place.“Then the hobbit slipped on his ring, warned by the echoes to take more than a hobbit's care to make no sound, he crept noiselessly down, down into the dark. He was trembling with fear, but his little face was set and grim”(p. 212).
Along with Bilbo Baggins becoming a braver and more respected hobbit, he also develops the most important change in the story; he changes from being incompetent to very resourceful. Bilbo's helplessness is demonstrated when the dwarves see the light in the distance where the trolls are and instead of Bilbo going back to tell the dwarves what he sees, he decides to try and pick-pocket the trolls. After hearing all this Bilbo ought to have done something at once. Either he should have gone back quietly and warned his friends that there were three fair-sized trolls at hand in a nasty mood, quite likely to try toasted dwarf, or even pony, for a change; or else he should have done a bit of quick burglary. A really first-class and legendary burglar would at this point picked the trolls' pockets - it is nearly always worthwhile, if you can manage it.
After the dwarves returned home, Bilbo received treasure but he presented the treasure to kings before the battle of the orcs. In the mountain, the dwarf king Thorin Oakenshield fell for the sea of gold and allowed it to draw him into greed. As a friend, Bilbo persuaded the king to snap out of greediness and stood by Thorin to tell him the truth. With humility, Bilbo perceived himself as an ordinary hobbit. Bilbo felt as if he was no one special and was just an ordinary hobbit called to set off on an adventure.
The meeting of Gollum was one of the first points in the novel where, Bilbo starts to show to himself, that he can be the hero, when he is needed. The confrontation with Gollum was an excellent example of how Bilbo is able to use his intellect, to help resolve/escape a situation. But the experience with Gollum foreshadows what could happen to Bilbo if he becomes corrupted by the ring, as Gollum has. “Gollum, the twisted, pitiful creature, teaches us something important about the consequences of our moral choices” (Foot). Tolkien has the reader wondering what is stronger Bilbo’s moral choices or the corrupting power of the ring, which will win
In The Hobbit, J.R.R. Tolkien uses the hobbit ,Bilbo, as an example of how a typical ,everyday hobbit turns into a fearless, audacious hero. In his words he shows us many instances where Bilbo turns into a hero to rescue his friends from the perilous dangers as they continue on their adventure. J.R.R. Tolkien uses the times when Bilbo slayes the giant spider, when he rescues the dwarves, and when he tries stops the Battle of The Five Armies.
After a hero’s many trials, they face their ultimate enemy, and for Bilbo that is Smaug, the dragon. Smaug shares qualities from the other does Bilbo faced, but with more powers and fearsomeness. Facing many new enemies in his trials, they all leave Bilbo something in return for defeating them such as the knowledge that no adventurer will be left behind, courage and respect from the dwarves as he helped set them free when all hope seemed to be lost, confidence and willingness to fight and lastly, the knowledge that while his friends can protect him, he can protect his friends. Bilbo’s Tookish side is now overwhelming his Baggins side as he become more of a hero everyday which is from such as instead of being saved, Bilbo is saving himself and others, “he had first of all to
Bilbo is truly a Took because he is able to do things others can't he just needs motivation so that makes him a hero because he doesn't think he acts heroically to save people and he's not selfish. Once Bilbo gets an opportunity to do something he says no because he wants to be normal but “something Took-ish woke him up” and he ran as fast as his Took legs could take him to join the journey.
Tolkien uses this in the book because The Hobbit is based around the very change of Bilbo and his transformation into a hero following him along his journey. As he first starts in his simple life as an everyman and becomes the exact opposite of what he thought he could ever become. “Come along back to your nice cells, and I will lock you all in again, and you can sit comfortably”(179). This shows how Bilbo is very frustrated with the dwarves and have is annoyed that they aren't even appreciating him. Situational irony follows in The Hobbit as a recurrence.
They often create problems and conflict in the story, granted that's interesting for the reader, it's not always the best for the characters themselves. Like when Bilbo and Gollum are having their riddle debate we were engaged because of the characters contrast. Now, they are basically opposites which created obvious conflict. Gollum comes across as an evil antagonist while Bilbo comes across as a heroic protagonist. Gollum gets in Bilbo's way of fulfilling his goal, he plays games with him for his own enjoyment.
