Jacob Petersen Mr. Wixon Comparative Literature 10 April 2017 The Necessity of Selflessness Absolute good can not be achieved without selflessness. This is seen in every form of fictional literature through the situations that the characters are placed in. For example, the book Fellowship of the Ring by J.R.R. Tolkien follows
Smaug’s Crusade He is never welcomed but comes anyway. A story illustrated by JRR Tolkien, is turned into a action packed movie directed by Peter Jackson. The movie is based upon a little hobbit named Bilbo Baggins who receives an opportunity to go on a quest with thirteen dwarves, a wizard, and a leader named Thorin.

In Chapter 12, Inside Information, Bilbo goes into Smaug’s cave, grabs a two handled golden cup, and leaves without awakening him up. Although that is what Tolkien included in his book, Jackson changed it up a bit. Jackson changed the part in the scene when Bilbo went into the cave he went in trying
Frodo Baggins is one of the main characters in this movie. He was given the ring from Bilbo when he announced that he was leaving the shire. Bilbo trusted Frodo to get the ring and since the focus of the story is on the ring, that makes the ring-bearer our main character, known as the hero. Frodo is a hero because he always tried his best to follow the directions he was told, even when it was tempting to do otherwise. The ring is very powerful, and his mission was to destroy the ring before Sauron and his men could get to it. By taking charge of this mission, he is a very heroic character.
Essay Topic 1 Joseph Campbell has an analysis of myths, quests, and adventure stories. This analysis is called Hero with a Thousand Faces and follows a specific step by step journey and it is all the same. I believe that the Hobbit follows the steps to a journey.

“One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them, One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them,” (55). The One Ring controls Gollum, Bilbo, Boromir, and Frodo in attempts to return to Sauron, Its Creator, the Lord of the Rings, and the utmost evil present in J.R.R. Tolkien’s novels. But the Ring never achieves Its goal because each character possesses a unique set of skills which resist the evil temptations of the Ring. Gollum is the first victim of the Ring, with no knowledge of Its powers or guidance away from Its control. Bilbo is the second ring bearer, with an almost complete knowledge of the Ring’s power still has difficulty resisting the Ring’s temptation. Gandalf guides Bilbo to constantly resist the evil of the Ring.

On their way they run into terrifying creatures...but one part that hit me the most is the part with Bilbo and Gollum. Bilbo used trickery to leave Gollum, using all sorts of riddles that really puzzle Gollum.As Bilbo was crawling away he found a ring, and that one little ring had help along the rest of the story as well. For example, at the castle Bilbo used brains, and bravery to sneak passed the guards. First he had to get the keys without waking the guard up.
