line. J.R.R. Tolkien & Important themes of the Hobbit
I am doing a novel project on the Hobbit in 9th grade. For one section, I have to describe any two themes of the novel. Here are my two themes: 1) Endurance/Perseverence: Tolkein is telling us that endurance is the key to success, and thatnif one perseveres hardships, eventually he tastes success. for more info,n email me. and if anyone has anything to add, then please email me too!
2)the Ring: this is probably the most important theme of the novel. First of all, a theme is basically what an author is trying to tell the people through his story or novel. For the ring, Tolkein is telling us that too much power is dangerous. This is shown by the fact that Golum was enraged and extremely furious to know that he had lost his ring. And this was not because he had gotten it as a gift and was sad to lose his gift, but because the ring had created an obsession for itself. Golum was in a way obsessed with it and its power. And if you read carefully then you would know that each time Bilbo wore the ring to become invisible, it became harder for him to take it off his finger, which shows that the ring was creating a bond with Bilbo and making him want to have it forever. This meant that the ring had to be destroyed, or this power may prove dangerous in the future. I haven't read any of the Lord of the Rings series, but this theme about too much power is one of the most important ones in the Hobbit. PLEASE EMAIL ME IF YOU HAVE MORE IDEAS ON THIS OR WANT MORE IDEAS FROM ME.
