The Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkien

For this report I have chosen to write on The Fellowship of the Ring by J. R. R. Tolkien. This book is a classic that every individual should read. This book is also part of a trilogy, and the story becomes more exciting as you read the other two books in the series. For this character analysis report I will focus on the character Frodo Baggins of the Shire.

Frodo Baggins is a Hobbit, a dwarf-like creature. He comes from the Shire, an area inhabited and ruled by Hobbits. Frodo likes to dress in bright colors, especially green and yellow. Of course he wears no shoes. No Hobbits do, because their feet are hard and hairy. His face is broad and red, and he has bright eyes. Frodo likes rhymes and songs, and he loves to jest. He really is rather quiet by nature except when he is drunk! Sometimes he shows stubborn traits. He is also willing to do what people ask. Frodo’s family is one of high standing and Frodo is the heir to Bilbo Baggins, finder of The Ring though nobody knows about this. Frodo has many friends because he is good-natured and is rather rich. In the story, Frodo is motivated mainly by the magical power of The Ring. His followers and the memory of Bilbo encourage him in the quest he must undertake.

Through the journey he takes in the story, Frodo must face grief, joy, fear, bewilderment, and conflict within himself and with others. Externally, The Ring drives him towards the Dark Lord and towards things he does not want to do. The Orcs,...
