The humans of Lake Town and the elves of Mirkwood march to the Lonely Mountain to seek a share of the treasure as compensation for their losses and aid, but Thorin greedily refuses, and the humans and elves besiege the mountain, trapping the dwarves and the hobbit inside.
In many ways the Smaug episode reflects and references the dragon of Beowulfand Tolkien uses the episode to put into practice some of the ground-breaking literary theories he had developed about the Old English poem in its portrayal of the dragon as having bestial intelligence.
Some courage and some wisdom, blended in measure. Hobbiton-across-the Water in colour and the The hobbit of new colour plates: Elves appear as either silly mischiefs Rivendell or hostile Mirkwood. But if the book is good, how do you give any recommendation that is equal the book?
Bilbo trips, and finds the ring on his finger. In using his elf-blade Bilbo finally takes his first independent heroic action. At this moment, The hobbit army of goblins and Wargs marches on the mountain, and the humans, elves, and dwarves are forced to band together to defeat them.
Gollum quietly paddles up in his boat, and the two enact the Riddle Gameunder the condition that if Bilbo wins, Gollum will show him the way out, but if Bilbo loses, Gollum will eat him.
Go in with low expectations so as to be certain that they will be met or exceeded. Gandalf had warned them not to leave the path, but they saw fire and heard singing, so, hopeless, they leave the path to beg food from Wood-elvesonly to get lost. Even if Giants are seen as a kind of large Troll, they are hard to justify, as trolls are described as either incredibly stupid or incredibly evil: The truth is that in this book a number of good things, never before united, have come together: It conveyed this message to one Bard the Bowmanwho seeing the bare patch on the chest of Smaug, dispatched the dragon with a single arrow, thus allowing the party of Dwarves to take possession of the treasure.
There, see how simple that was?
I fancy the author of Beowulf would say much the same. Bilbo is quite content at Bag End, near the bustling hobbit village of Hobbiton, but one day his comfort is shattered by the arrival of the old wizard Gandalf, who persuades Bilbo to set out on an adventure with a group of thirteen militant dwarves.
One example of the use of song to maintain tone is when Thorin and Company are kidnapped by goblins, who, when marching them into the underworld, sing: The party travels to Rivendellwhere they enjoy the hospitality of elves.
While Beowulf has the help of GodBilbo often prevails because of his sheer luck. Dwarves are also spell casters and use enchanted curses in similarity to his earlier tales. Continuing down a tunnel, he finds himself at the shore of an underground lake.
We hates it, we hates it, we hates it forever!
Bilbo wrote the story of his journeys to recount them to the children of Hobbiton and therefore changed the story somewhat. Unless you are an author of equal worth to the one whose work you review, what powers of prose and observation are you likely to have to fitly adorn the work?
His creative endeavours at this time also included letters from Father Christmas to his children—illustrated manuscripts that featured warring gnomes and goblinsand a helpful polar bear —alongside the creation of elven languages and an attendant mythology, including the Book of Lost Taleswhich he had been creating since Both dragons are well protected by their armour, a natural one in Beowulf and one made of gold and diamonds in The Hobbit, but finally they are killed.
Shortly after escaping the spiders, the unlucky dwarves are captured by a group of wood elves who live near the river that runs through Mirkwood. After a lengthy discussion, during which Bilbo uses the phrase "Good Morning" several times, Bilbo finds himself flustered.
He also posted that his appreciation of Tolkien was enhanced by his knowledge of the fantasy genre and the folklore research he had undertaken while making his own fantasy films. He finds a tunnel leading up out of the mountain and discovers that the dwarves and Gandalf have already escaped.
