First, after the dwarves or the “unexpected party” arrived they sang a song about an adventure that they would ask Bilbo to join and what it was about. The tone of the song was to persuade and inspire Bilbo to agree to go. For example the dwarves sand, “Far over the Misty Mountains cold.” This line was repeated multiple times in the song and caused Bilbo’s Tookish side to want to see the great mountains and go on an adventure. The poem’s content consisted of explaining the reasons to go on the adventure. They sung, “To win our harps and gold from him.” This explains that they must return to their ancestors’ land to win back the riches that were taken by Smaug. There also was a lot of rhyme in this song, Tolkien states the dwarves sing “Far over the misty mountains cold To dungeons deep and caverns old We must away ere break of day To seek the pale and enchanted gold.” This is a great example of rhyme the ending sounds of cold, old, and gold sound alike. The tone, content, and structure signal features about the dwarves. This song showed that the dwarves are very adventurous and brave. Since they must cross back over the dangerous,
They were also singing about their small towns and traditions, which were subjects fully incentivised and promoted by the superiors because in that way they were also glorifying their country.
Music in “The Hobbit” contributes to character development of these magical creatures in 3 major ways. In the songs it shows the personality of the Dwarves and the Elves. It does this by showing why they want to go on a quest and where it leads them. It tells the reader that the Dwarves are vengeful because the dragon stole their treasure. Songs also show the personality of the elves which is happy. These are apparent because the tone of each song relates to why they are singing. An example is the elves song. They sing this “The bannocks are baking! O! tril-lil-lil-lolly the valley is jolly, ha! Ha!” In the Goblins song it shows us what they do to prisoners. In this song it uses onomatopoeia to simulate the sound of the tools that they

However, music plays an enormous role in our psychology, because a single song has the ability to bring about many kinds of thoughts and emotions in the listener.

“The mountain smoked beneath the moon; The dwarves, they heard the tramp of doom.(15)” The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien is a tale comprised almost solely of mystique and heroics. One facet of this precious story is given through song. The songs are meant to give a picture of the past and also to foreshadow what is to come. In the case of the dwarf party, their songs spoke of a past event, the moving of a wind over the land, and their triumphant return to the halls of their ancestors. Song singing is a great medium for sharing information as well as feelings, and Tolkien used this medium well.

This is proved by the length of the song. The song sung by the dwarves is so long that the when you read it, you feel as if you are with
In the following verses, keeping in mind that the dwarves are displaced from their home, the words take on a more somber tone. The dwarves no longer have a place to craft and sing to themselves; they have no home. The attack on the dwarves' home by the dragon is covered in verses seven, eight and nine. Tolkien uses extra rhyming with the -ing suffix of roaring, moaning, flaming--a bit of personification of the land--to describe Smaug's attack. reveals that the dragon is not a mindless monster but possesses hatred and anger as he destroys a town while men look on with is literally the dragon's feet as it chases after the fleeing dwarves and metaphorically the march of defeated dwarves forced from their

While reading the book The Hobbit,the traits that the Tolkien considers positive is how the dwarfs can be so delightful, caring, and helpful.

Music definitely plays a major role in the developments of the different magical beings. Between the dwarves, the elves, and the goblins their songs are very different. The songs they sing or chant describe something about them. So the songs of the dwarves, elves, and the goblins make up some of who they are. The build up of the songs are also the build up of their personalities.
