The comparison between the Bilbo in chapter one to the Bilbo at the end of the novel
Answers 1Add Yours
When we first meet Bilbo, his life is ordered, his home is immaculate, and he is happiest sitting snuggly within the walls of his hobbit hole. He has no interest in adventure and refuses to take part in Gandalf's plans, but then everything changes. Once he takes on the challenge, Bilbo finds courage, strength, and tenacity. He finds he has an inner strength and desire for adventure he'd never known existed. He comes to understand the world outside his own community, and he learns to care about things and people that once were a mystery to him. He is loyal, brave, and unselfish. Well, almost always unselfish.
