Transcript of The Hobbit

The adventure of a life-time The Hobbit Social Connection Plot Highlights Characters Bilbo Baggins Bilbo is the main character of this epic quest. He is what one calls a Hobbit. Hobbits are short creatures that enjoy the quiet life. They are sophisticated and know how to prepare a meal. He is called upon for help on a journey which he is reluctant to go on; but when he does, it changes his life forever. Gandalf The Grey Gandalf is a wizard. He is known for his fancy fireworks on holidays in The Shire. Gandalf provides the guidance and supernatural assistance on the Journey of the hobbit and the dwarves. He enters Bilbo's life instantly and changes it just as fast. Thorin and company Thorin and the dwarves. Thorin Oakenshield is the middle, and also the leader of the pack. These Dwarves are the ones who seek to reclaim the treasure from the Lonely Mountain.

a wizard and, at least in the book, a cousin of Gandalf's.
In the movie, he is only mentioned as maybe a distant
friend. In the 2012 movie, he played a larger roll
and helped Gandalf, Bilbo, and the dwarves
escape from the wolf riding orcs. The wolves. In the book, wolves are
pursuing the protagonists, but in the
movie, the wolves are being ridden by orcs; who are being led by Azog, The pale orc. Who is supposed dead in the book, but is very much alive in the movie. FRODO! Frodo's character was not even mentioned or created until J.R.R Tolkien's Fellowship of the Ring, though in the movie, he has a small speaking roll at the beginning. Author Bio John Ronald Reuel Tolkien is the genius behind The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings. He was born in 1892 and died in 1973. The fantasy/adventure he called The Hobbit was published on September 21st, 1937. Tolkien was an English poet, writer, and philologist*. He also served in the First World War(picture is him in army uniform) Though his most famous works were The Hobbit and the
Lord of the Rings, he is also known
for The Silmarillion, Oliphaunt, The 3
volume series of The History of Middle
Earth, and many more. The Hobbit, Literary elements Setting: Since this tale is an adventure/journey, the location of our heroes changes throughout the book. But overall, the continent that these characters live on is called Middle Earth, 60 years before The Lord of the Rings stories. Middle Earth is an entirely fictional place, with many sub-regions, cities, and landforms. The group travels east from The shire, over the Misty Mountains, towards The Lonely Mountain. Theme: In my own opinion, I believe that the theme of the book is growing up. In life, one must learn that things are not always pretty, and must gather the courage to over come difficult obstacles that you probably will not want to face. In The Hobbit, Bilbo does just this, but instead of growing older, leaving the house, going to college and getting a job, he fights trolls, wolves and a dragon. He did not want to go at first. Though when he did, he learned he could be more courageous and adventurous and the the adventure life was more his speed. Plot Structure: The plot structure is very basic with a few different alterations. There is the introduction, with a nice explanation of setting and characters, a rising action, climax, and falling action. Though in The Hobbit, the climax can be debatable. There were a couple parts that could be deemed climactic. Then in the rising action, there were plenty of instances that could have what i like to call mini climaxes. intro rising action with mini climaxes Climax falling action and resolution Reviews "'The Hobbit' is a glorious account of a magnificent adventure, filled with suspense and seasoned with a quiet humor that is irresistible." -New York Times, Anne Eaton "It has become the inspiration and template for the modern fantasy genre." -Samuel Walters "Fans won't want to hear it, but "An Unexpected Journey" is a major comedown, a muddle-headed and cumbersome piece of filmmaking that betrays Jackson's mercenary motives" -Tom Charity of CNN People go on adventures every day. There are big adventures and small ones, even if its getting your first after school job, or starting a business. Like Samuel Walters said in his review of the novel, The Hobbit has created the template of the modern fantasy drama. I think he is right even outside the literature level. The adventures of everyday people, or even you, could metaphorically follow the design of Bilbo's adventure through Middle Earth. He starts out unwilling to go, encounters many hardships, wants to go back plenty of times, but follows through with it. He gets past the hardest part, then enjoys life afterward.

Like I said before, the theme of The Hobbit is maturation. The story represents life and getting through it. So take your first step, and go on an adventure.
