Michael Shermer, a science writer and historian of science said, “Humans are pattern-seeking story-telling animals, and we are quite adept at telling stories about patterns, whether they exist or not.” In J.R.R. Tolkien's novel The Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, the main protagonist, joins a group of dwarves to recover their lost, forgotten gold from Smaug the dragon. Joseph Campbell’s A Hero with a Thousand Faces, he states that many legendary heros follow a pattern in their adventures. Matthew Winkler has his own ideas of the heroic quest pattern, stating the hero's follow a pattern of eleven stages. Both The Hobbit and the heroic journey have similar elements with departure, initiation and then return.
J.R.R. Tolkien writes about the journey of a hobbit named Frodo. Frodo’s job is to destroy the Ring before Sauron, Lord of the Rings, who created it, can find it again (Yates). Tolkien creates a mythic world full of allusion and conflict to illustrate the theme of good vs evil that has fascinated many generations of readers.

The Hobbit, a fantasy novel written by author J.R.R. Tolkien, follows the story of a regular Hobbit named Bilbo Baggins, who goes on an incredible journey in search of wealth and, unbeknownst to him, his own self-worth. This adventure that Bilbo goes on happens to perfectly portray the stages of “A Hero’s Journey”, which, discovered by Joseph Campbell in his book The Hero with a Thousand Faces, is the theory that all heroes, ranging from those in Greek mythology to those in today’s TV shows, encounter he same basic, universal stages throughout their journeys.
Many people imagine the word ‘hero’ in different ways. Most conceptualize a man with a strong stature and a He-man-like build. However, brawn is not the only characteristic that defines a hero. Take, for example, a child whose existence disturbs the very nature of the futuristic sphere in which he inhabits, Or perhaps a tenacious king adrift with nothing but his crew and the immense cerulean sea. Ender’s Game, a novel, follows Ender Wiggin, a seasoned warrior, the third of a family of child prodigies on his journey to ultimately save the world.
Riddles are a major component in The Hobbit. Gollum and Bilbo have their riddle contest and because Bilbo wins, he escapes from Gollum's lake alive. This is probably a good thing since the dwarves would've died many times without him. The riddle of the moon-letters hinders the plot a little, but it adds a sense of mystery to the story. When Bilbo came upon the mountain and visited Smaug, he introduced himself in riddles so that Smaug would not know who he was.
In the book Beowulf the character Beowulf has all the characteristics of an epic hero. Ted Ed says on What Makes a Hero? That “The stages of the hero are The call to adventure, Assistance, Departure, Trial, Approach, Crisis, treasure, result, return, new life, resolution, and status quo”(Ted Ed). To be a hero they go through the stages and if they don’t they are not counted as much of a hero to people’s eyes. A hero must go through all stages like Beowulf.
