Please address the following in your discussion post here: All of our main char – writinghub.net

All of our main characters in The Hobbit (Bilbo, Gandalf, Smaug, The Bowman, pick a dwarf! Etc), seem spurred to adventure for very specific reasons and motivations. Discuss. Pick your favorite character or the one that provokes you in some way and comment/ question/ discuss their role in this novel. How do they function in the narrative? Why does Tolkien include them? …do they reflect something of Tolkien’s love of myth or his life?

Have at it, use (short) quotations/ citations, and have a good discussion.
