Author: J.R.R. Tolkien The Hobbit Main character(continued) Time:Around May through July.
Place: includes dark forests, the Lonely Mountain, caves, underground tunnels, the city of Dale, etc. Bilbo is a problem solver and his luck is known for saving him most of the time. By: Lisa Mishra Setting Setting(continued) Along the way, Bilbo encounters evil creatures that live underground or in caves such as goblins or Gollum. Bilbo comes from "Hobbiton" in the Shire. Main character conflict The dwarves don't realize Bilbo's usefulness due to how much he whines. When Bilbo saves their lives several time later on, they respect him. Plot Overview Bilbo lives a quiet life in the Shire until twelve dwarves and a wizard named Gandalf arrive. They drag him along on an adventure. Gandalf Dwarves Plot overview(continued) Along the way, Bilbo and the dwarves encounter many creatures, some good and some evil. At some points Gandalf dissappears, but eventually comes back. Plot Overview(continued) In many ways Bilbo proves himself useful, and saves the dwarves countless times. Whenever Gandalf has dissappeared, Bilbo has the cleverest ideas. Conflict/Resolution Bilbo and the dwarves encounters many problems, such as trolls, goblins, and other unfriendly creatures, before they even get to Smaug and the stolen treasure. Plot Overview(continued) The purpose of the dangerous adventure was to recover treasure stolen from the dwarves by an evil dragon named Smaug. Tone(quote) "What was he to do? If he cut the string which hung him up, the wretched dwarf would tumble thump to the ground..." Tone(analysis) Restless and determined, tries to think of a solution to save the dwarves from the spiders.
"Wretched" and "tumble" for humor
Question for restless determination Quote "The pale peaks of the mountains were coming nearer, moonlit spikes of rock sticking out of black shadows." Quote(significance) Imagery describes Bilbo's view when hanging from the eagles's talons after being saved from the goblins and "Wargs". Theme The theme is adventurous;The whole story is an adventure to recover stole treasure from Smaug.
Example: "More walking and more climbing without breakfast!" pg.222 Example:"He fought the real battle in the tunnel alone, before he ever saw the vast danger that lay in wait." Personal Response The book has an interesting plot. In every chapter a new character or creature enters the story, either as a benefit or a problem. The End

THANK YOU FOR WATCHING! From the start of the journey, Bilbo is desperate to be back in his home. Later he earns confidence from saving the dwarves multiple times. Main Character The main character of "The Hobbit" is Bilbo Baggins. Bilbo is shy and not very fond of adventures. The type of conflict taking place is Man vs. Nature Personal Connection When Bilbo climbed the Lonely Mountains, he reminded me of my brother when we were climbing a cliff in Big Bend, Texas: mostly whiny. Three main events: 1. Dwarves and Gandalf talk to Bilbo and drag him along. 2. Meet hungry trolls, first predicament Bilbo and the dwarves fall in. 3. Smaug is dead and the hesitantly dwarves share the recovered treasure with the people of Dain and the elves. Personal Connection It relates to my life because I've been to many different places with caves, mountains, and other places the book reminds me of.
