The Hobbit

The Hobbit Essay Questions?

I've got a huge test tomorrow and need to write a paragraph for each question. I have 4 questions. 1) What might the hobbits find so threatening about adventures and exploration? How does adventure conflict with hobbit values? 2) What does Bilbo take away from his explorations? What kinds of knowledge does Bilbo's adventure bring him? How do Bilbo's explorations change him as a hobbit? 3) What are the different attitudes of Bilbo and the various dwarves toward exploration? Do the dwarves share a general approach to exploration, or are there differences within Thorin's company? 4) While Thorin's concept of wealth is pretty easy to define (gold, silver, jewels, the Arkenstone), Gandalf's or Bilbo's ideas of treasure seem a little bit more obscure. What do the different characters in this novel treasure? How do these treasures compare with the material things Thorin wants to collect? ---------- any help would be greatly appreciated!!! Thanks!

Jordan- I think you better hunker down and read through gradesaver's study guide. This is a short answer forum; you need to write at least a four paragraph paper. The study guide will help you immensely...... give it a shot!
