Biblo Baggins Of "The Hobbit" By J. R. R. Tolkien Character Analysis.

821 words - 3 pages

Bilbo Baggins in the novel, The Hobbit by J. R. R. Tolkien, is a clever character. In the beginning of the tale, the dwarfs considered Bilbo as a worthless grocer rather than a burglar (Tolkien 18). Later on in their journey, the dwarfs gave Bilbo more respect because of the many times he saved them from the obstacles they faced. He is a hero, some might say. The first thing that anyone would think of when they hear the word "hero" is strength and ability. However, Bilbo Baggins is not that type of hero. He used his humor and intelligence to aid him in saving his crew; however, the start of the journey was a bit shaky.As their journey began, Bilbo was clumsy and inexperienced. His first mission to investigate a light in the woods was a disaster. Trolls captured him and the dwarfs; however, Gandalf, the wizard, soon saved them. At this time, the dwarfs look up to Gandalf more than anyone else. Soon after Gandalf left them to continue on with their journey, Bilbo becomes well respected.In the meantime, Bilbo was again captured.

Bilbo was clever enough to have answered every riddle correctly, escaped from Gollum, and returned to Gandalf and the dwarfs on the other side of the mountains.Continuing their journey without Gandalf, another obstacle arouses. Bilbo overcame this hindrance chivalrously. When the giant spiders in the woods captured all the dwarfs, Bilbo did not try to kill the beasts. He decided to insult the spiders and lead them further away from the dwarfs. He wanted to make them curious, excited, and angry simultaneously. When Bilbo freed the dwarfs, they had great respect for him. They realized he had wits about him after all. Some even bowed before him (150).Wits and a magic ring helped Bilbo greatly so far, but this next task only required his intelligence. Of course, the dwarfs were confined again, this time, by wood-elves. For some time Bilbo sat and thought about a water-gate he discovered and wondered if it could be used for the escape of his friends (160). When the opportunity came, Bilbo attempted his plan. He putted the dwarfs in barrels and let it drift in the stream. Although his idea was...
