The novel “The Hobbit”, or “There and back Again”, written by J.R.R. Tolkien tells the tale of a hobbit named Bilbo Baggins. This story has been adapted into three films, as well, by the filmmaker and screenwriter Peter Jackson. Throughout Jackson’s “The Hobbit” trilogy, he encompassed little of the most important components of the Tolkien’s literary edition. There were many differences between the two adaptations of the story.
The Hobbit begins with introducing our hero, Bilbo Baggins, who is a respectable hobbit that lives in the Shire. His ordinary life is a middle-aged hobbit that does not go on adventures, even though he longs to do something exciting like his deceased mother. His call to adventure starts with Gandalf the Gray, a wizard, who was also a friend of his mother. Gandalf shows up to try and convince Bilbo that he is needed for an adventure, though he does not go into detail about what the adventure would entail. Gandalf leaves after Bilbo refuses the call to adventure and wishes him a good day.
The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolken Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit, one of a race of short, timid creatures who live in cozy tunnels and who prefer to keep their lives ordered and predictable. One day, he unexpectedly finds himself playing host to Gandalf the wizard and thirteen dwarves. The dwarves, with Gandalf's help, plan to travel to the Lonely Mountain to recover the treasure that a dragon named Smaug stole from their people long ago. Gandalf has selected Bilbo to be their burglar.
The Hobbit: Exploring Bilbo’s Change in Character The Hobbit written by J.R.R. Tolkien follows a hobbit named Bilbo Baggins as he takes an adventure of a lifetime. Bilbo is content to live a quiet, simple life far from adventure, until the wizard known as Gandalf appears on his doorstep one morning. Very much to Bilbo’s dismay, he is soon swept off on an adventure the likes of which he has only heard stories about.

Character Analysis of Shrek and Lord Farquaad In traditional fairytales, ogres are man-eating beasts. The prince usually rescues the princess; they marry and live happily ever after. How do the makers of 'Shrek' use presentational devices to reverse this tradition, to reveal the ogre as good, and the prince as evil? In this essay, I am going to analyse the characters of Shrek and Lord Farquaad, and write about how filmmakers use different presentational devices to create an unusual fairytale. In conforming fairytales there are Princes such as prince charming, but they are the only kind of prince you are normally going to find, whereas the ogres and giants are a mixed breed, there is the ogre who attempts to eat the three Billy goats gruff, or the giant form Jack and the Beanstalk.
But Gandalf saw something more in Bilbo and would not be discouraged. He left the hobbit, but not before he had scratched a sign on Bilbo’s door. The following day, Gandalf showed for tea, along with thirteen dwarves. This was the beginning of the adventures between the hobbit and the dwarves. The next day, Bilbo somehow found himself leaving his comfortable hobbit hole, and on what seemed to be an adventure.
Bilbo and his friends uphold this standard when meeting new creatures. After the dwarves and Bilbo escape the trolls, Gandalf must explain how one of his friends live in the woods and they should go visit. As Gandalf and Bilbo meet their host, Gandalf introduces him, “‘That is Mr. Baggins, a hobbit of a good family and unimpeachable reputation,’ said Gandalf. Bilbo bowed. He had no hat to take off, and was painfully conscious of his many missing buttons” (118-119).
J.R.R. Tolkien starts his world renowned book The Hobbit with, “In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit” (1). This book is a tale of a small hobbit named Bilbo and his ever-memorable journey through the evil world during his time. Living in the Shire, as his homeland is called, it is very calm and pleasant for Bilbo, but once the outer limits of the land are reached Bilbo is in for a great surprise. Needing a burglar on his journey Gandalf the Grey, who is famous for his magic with fire and light, came to ask for Bilbo's assistance.
Gandalf often comes to The Hill and tells weird stories and want to bring young hobbits on an adventure. The next day, Gandalf and thirteen dwarves: Dwalin, Balin, Kili, Fili, Dori, Nori, Ori, Oin, Gloin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, and Thorin visit Bilbo. Gandalf shows a map made by Thror that shows where the treasure is hidden. Gandalf gives Thorin the key to the entrance. Thorin tells a story about people who were happy and lived under the Mountain until the dragon Smaug
Day 2 The Hobbit starts off in a hobbit hole, one inside The Hill. Inside the hole lives Bilbo Baggins, whose story is told in third person omniscient. But as I was saying, Bilbo comes from a line of Bagginses who are respected and are expected to do anything out of the normal, for that they were respected. Then one day Gandalf, the wizard, comes to talk to him about an adventure. Bilbo resists because he is used to this lifestyle but Gandalf thinks otherwise.
