This essay The book I read and analyzed was “The Hobbit” by J has a total of 1122 words and 5 pages.
The book I read and analyzed was “The Hobbit” by J.R.R. Tolkein. I
shall discuss the plot and character development, setting, author’s style
and my opinions about it.
There are too many characters in the story and so it is hard to follow
and know each one of them. (There are many dwarves and it’s confusing.)
In the beginning there is an introduction where the author tells a bit
about what is a hobbit and the hobbit’s (Bilbo) family. It is not very
complicated and the author makes it easy to understand. This introduction
gives the general background, which makes the story easier to understand,
for the plot and its development.
The plot development in the middle is not complicated and easy to
follow. It can even be summarized in a few sentences.
The ending is expected since the author gives hints about it. As in the
introduction when he says that the hobbit would gain something, this
means that he will not die. Then, the reader is not kept in suspense and
does not expect to see what happens at the end.
The last climax (or what is supposed to be the climax) takes a long
time to occur (the last fight—good (men, elves, dwarves & eagles) vs. evil
(wargs & goblins)) and this reduces its effectiveness.
After the climax there is the long return home. It is quite boring since
there is nothing to expect to and the reader knows that the hobbit would
get home safely. In my opinion it should have been shorter.
The creation of the characters is done by their dialogues and
monologues, actions and things noted by the narrator (the author in this
case) himself. An example for dialogue: “All the same, I should like it all
plain and clear, also I should like to know about risks, out-of-pocket
expenses...” (by Bilbo, page 22, it shows that he is not ready to jump into
things so quickly). An example for a monologue: “Now is the time for our
esteemed Mr. Baggins, who has proved himself...” (by Thorin, page 210, it
shows Thorin’s style). A good example for action is when Thorin blocked
the Gate in the mountain that shows the reader that the treasure is
important to Thorin and he rather die than giving it away. An example for
notes by the author: “You are familiar with Thorin’s style on important
occasions...” (page 210) the author talks directly to the reader and helps
him understand the text.
Each character has a physical description. The length and content of
the description increase as the character importance to the plot increases
(e.g., the hobbit has very long descriptions in the story (especially in the
introduction) and the Elvenking has fewer descriptions).
The more important characters get an emotional description too, but it
is not well seen, but it can be extracted from the text by analyzing it. The
example I gave before about Bilbo not rushing into things is a good
example for this too.
The central figure is the hobbit, Bilbo. He is the one that makes many
things occur by his mistakes and luck. The author gives long descriptions
of him and refers to him a lot, he also made him save his companions’ life
and without him the plot would not have been the same.
The supporting cast is divided into the more important characters
(such as the dwarves and Gandalf) into less important and less described
ones (such as the elf guards that caught the party in the woods).
It is hard to believe that the characters can exist in reality since they
cannot, and they are not supposed to since it is a fantasy book.
The story occurs in the imaginary world—Middle-earth—created by
the author, it is appropriate since creatures that are found in the book (e.g.,
goblins and dwarves) do not exist in our world.
Since the story happens in many places over Middle-earth the author
gives a deep description only in places where important things to the plot
happen but in other places he gives a more general description. Most
places make the reader have a picture in his brain of them, the author uses
the appropriate words and gives good descriptions.
It takes the story about a year to occur. It starts at the spring and ends
in about the same

The History of Special EffectsThe History of Special Effects The Motion Picture Industry has been a part of American society since the early part of the 20th century. And through the ages filmmakers have always tried to do their best to “wow” their audiences, and make them wonder how it’s done. Who could forget the towering ape holding Fay Wray in “King Kong”, or Stanley Kubrick’s impressive space station in “2001: A Space Odyssey”?

HEROIC QUALITIES HEROIC QUALITIES In the story The Hobbit Bilbo ends up being the hero in many situations. At first you would not consider him a hero by any of today’s typical standards for one. For example he’s not big, strong , handsome,or good with any particular weapon. But in the hobbit bilbo does not need any of those particular standards. He is considered a hero under different standards. He is lucky, brave (this aspect develops throughout the novel), intelligent, and can be quite witty as well. In this

Similarities between Jane Austens Emma and Sense and SensibilitySimilarities between Jane Austen’s ‘Emma’ and ‘Sense and Sensibility’. Introduction Sense and Sensibility was published in 1811 whereas Emma came into book form five years later, in 1816. Austen described Emma a person “no one but myself will much like” a prediction which I consider to be false. From what I’ve gathered by reading these two books is that although her male characters (especially the eligible, dashing suitors whom her heroines, in these two books at least, never marry) may be more

JRR Tolkien led an interesting life because he had many traumatizing e J.R.R. Tolkien led an interesting life because he had many traumatizing experiences as a child. Did these experiences effect his writing or was he just an imaginative adult or was he a child in a grown mans body? That is what we are going to explore in this paper. By the time I am done you will believe that this man was a traumatized child. The many experiences that he had during long his life were very dramatic. They would have made even the toughest of children have problems later on in life.
