With the help of the ring that he found earlier on, Bilbo was able to make battle with the spiders and end victorious. He was faced with the challenge of saving the rest of the dwarves from the evil spiders. First of all, courage is demonstrated by Bilbo when he decides to throw rocks at the pernicious spiders. The first thrown rock was at the spider beside Bombur: The stone struck the spider plunk on the head, and it had dropped senseless off the tree, flop to the ground, with all its legs curled up (p. 157). He next used his skillful th ...

    Hobbit The main conflict in this novel is ultimately the acquisition of the lost treasure of the dwarves hoarded by Smaug (the great dragon under the mountain).

  • Hobbit Essay - 807 words
    Hobbit Essay Hobbit Essay The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien is set in a fantasy world that has differences, as well as similarities, to our own world. The author has created the novel's world, Middle Earth, not only by using imagination, but by also adding details from the modern world. Realistic elements in the book enable readers to relate to the setting, yet have the ability to "imagine" exciting events and organisms not found on Earth. The majority of differences between Middle Earth and today's world are found in objects and the actions of characters that can not be carried out or created in our world. The most abundant example of this in The Hobbit is the presence of magic. Gandalf, the wiz ...

Also, one of Bilbos descendants, Frodo, was burdened with the temptation of the Ring. Frodo knew of the power that the Ring held and knew that he could either be a great evil power himself, or that this great evil thing must be destroyed. The end of the "Lord of the Rings" results in the destruction of the Ring and, along with it, the death of Frodo. "Frodo learns- and thus teaches- what for Tolkien is the deepest of all Christian truths: how to surrender ones life, how to lose ones treasure, how to die, and thus how truly to live." (Wood, 208) Another Christian-like manifest ...

    "The Hobbit" J.R.R. Tolkien Bilbo Baggins was a hobbit. Now, what is a hobbit, you ask? Well, "Hobbits are little people, smaller than" dwarves. They love peace and quiet and good tilled earth." A respectable race, hobbits lived for serenity. Bilbo himself enjoyed sitting outside, smoking his wooden pipe. Now if a dilemma hadn't reared its ugly hear, Baggins would probably still be at his house, his worst fear only dealing with messy housekeeping. Such, however is not the case. Gandalf, the Great Wizard himself, and thirteen dwarves (their names were Dwalin, Balin, Kili, Fili, Dori, Nori, Ori, Oin, Gloin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, and Thorin, for those of you who are adept in remembering names) ...
