Transcript of LOTR

Lord of the Rings:
The Fellowship of the Ring by: J. R. R. Tolkien "One ring to rule them all, one ring to find them,
one ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them."
- the inscription on the One Ring Characters Frodo Baggins Frodo is the main character in the novel. He is given the ring by his uncle, Bilbo
Baggins and is set out to destroy the ring before Sauron, the dark lord and
creator of the ring, can get the ring and use it to control all of Middle-Earth. Sam Gamgee Sauron Sam is Frodo's close friend, and Frodo is also Sam's master. Sam always sticks by
Frodo's side no matter what happens. Also, Sam loves to garden and often
does the lawnwork for this reason. Sauron, the dark lord, is the main antagonist in the story. He is the creator of the
ring, and with the ring, he can control the other rings of power given to the leaders
of all the races of Middle-Earth. For these rings, 3 were given to the elves, 7 were
given to the dwarves, and 9 were given to the men. Gandalf Gandalf is a powerful wizard who is friends with the hobbits. he
is very well known, and is part of the council of wizards lead by
Sauromon. In this story, he is only Gandalf the Grey, but in a later novel,
becomes Gandlaf the White. Following Frodo Frodo starts out in the story as an innocent young man. Though as his adventure progresses on, he begins to become a battle- hardend adventurer on a race to destroy the ring. (He also loses a lot of weight,for in the begining of the novel, he is described as quite pudgy.) Setting The novel takes place in the land of Middle-Earth starting in the summer, and ends in the spring about a year later. The Shire The Shire is the land where Frodo and other hobbits are from. It is the starting point of the adventure. Rivendell Rivendell is an elven outpost. in the House of Elrond, Frodo is reunited with Gandalf and meets many characters that will help him along the way. Mordor Mordor is where the Dark Lord, Sauron, lives and where the ring was created, Frodo must throw the ring into the fires from which it was made to destroy it. Plot Map Introduction The introductionto the story starts as Bilbo's Birthday party. Many people are invited and the entertainment is great, especially fireworks by Gandalf. Rising Action 1.) Frodo is introduced to the ring As soon as Frodo first picks up the ring, he will never be able to stay in one place ever again untill the ring is destroyed. 2.) Frodo learns of the Ringwraiths The Ringwraiths hunt Frodo for the ring and will stop at nothing to get the ring from him. 3.) Gandalf is pulled into the fire Gandalf is pulled down by the Balrog's whip when he breaks the bridge under it. Climax The fellowship reaches Lothlórien In Lothlórien, they are given gifts to help them with the remainder of the journey. Falling Action 1.) The fellowship travels down the river by boat
By boat, they are traveling much faster than they were before. They are also much harder to be tracked this way.
2.) Gollum is discovered
Frodo, Sam, and Aragorn notice Gollum following them. If he had not been found, the enemy would have found them.
3.)The fellowship comes into view of Mordor
They are close to their final destination. Frodo must destroy the ring before he is tracked down. Conclusion Since this trilogy isn't actually a trilogy at all, but truly one novel in three parts, the ending isn't much of a conclusion. The fellowship is broken. Sam and Frodo continue on without the others. They begin to move toward the Land of the Shadow from over the hills of Emyn Muil. Theme One of the themes in this novel is faith. Faith is an important topic to read about because faith is a necessary part of all of our lives. It can be something as small as trusting your friend on something they say, or something as large as believing in God, or whatever your religion may be. Reactions I thought the book was good. There was a lot of detail, though. Regardless, there were still some great action scenes and a storline that made this one of my favorites. I plan to read the rest of the series and the compare them to the movies. It may not have affected the way I see the world, but it has affected the way that i see reading. Aragorn Aragorn is a ranger who helps Frodo very much through his quest. Frodo met Aragorn (as Strider) in an inn in Bree called The Prancing Pony.
