Essays on The Fellowship of the Rings

In the Fellowship of the Rings, Frodo (who is the nephew of Bilbo Baggins from Tolkien’s previous novel, The Hobbit) receives the ring that had been taken from within the mountain caves.  Frodo is informed of the ring’s dark secrets and given a mission by Gandalf the Grey.  It is his job to destroy the ring after we find out that it is starting to destroy the mind of Bilbo who has had control of the dark object.  Frodo starts on his journey with his friends, Sam, Merry, and Pippin as they begin to make their way to where the ring can be destroyed.  They quickly learn, however, that dark forces know about the ring and are willing to stop at nothing to obtain it.

The Fellowship of the Rings was written by J.R.R. Tolkien.  Tolkien is well known for his book The Hobbit as well as The Book of Lost Tales.  He was born in 1892 in Bloemfontein, South Africa.  His father moved them from South Africa to London in hopes of becoming a manager for the Bank of Africa.  Tolkien developed Trench Fever when fighting in World War I.  After the war, Tolkien began writing books. Later, during the late 1920 or early 1930s, he and C.S. Lewis met and became fast friends.  This friendship led the two to heavily influence each other’s writings.

The main character interactions in The Fellowship of the Rings are primarily between the two hobbits Frodo and Sam.  Frodo is a proud individual, highly intelligent, and determined to prove himself worthy of being his uncle’s kin.  His friend Sam, though not as bright in some was as Frodo, is a more down-to-Earth character and unquestionably loyal to Frodo.  With the remaining members of his band, the “fellowship” seems a combination that seems in many ways unlikely to succeed in such a dangerous mission. However, the way that all of the characters work together is what brings the friendship that survives the hardship of the travels together.

In all, The Fellowship of the Rings seems slow in its uptake, but this is understandable when one considers it is the first book (the set-up so to speak) for a trilogy.  In this first novel, Tolkien focuses on the introduction of his characters and establishes the link to his previous novel, “The Hobbit.”  He also introduces the air of high adventure, bringing to bare the urgency of the fellowship’s mission as they are pursued by mysterious riders, bent on obtaining The Ring.  Many argue that this novel and the others are not a trilogy, but a series that began with Tolkien’s first novel “The Book of Lost Tales,” although many still call The Fellowship of the Rings and the two subsequent novels the “Middle-Earth” trilogy.

Many feel that to understand Tolkien’s works it is necessary to have read them all.  Although I personally have read them (I love both Tolkien and Lewis as if dear friends), each novel can be effectively written about individually by a skilled writer.  Our company employs the services of only such writers.  Each with years of experience and extraordinary talent, any one of them can prepare high-caliber essays on Tolkien’s complex saga, as well as virtually any other topic.  All we need is your order.

Essays on The Hobbit

Over the years, the name of J. R. R. Tolkien has all but become a household word, thanks to the movie industry.  But like most amazing stories, this adventure began with pen and paper.  Tolkien, a British-born author, began his work on the “Middle-Earth” series during the 1920s.  Tolkien and C. S. Lewis’ works (The Chronicles of Narnia) carry a similar flavor, reflecting the influence each had on the other.  This stands as evidence of the close friendship between these two genuinely classic authors.

In the Hobbit, a Hobbit named Bilbo Baggins is chosen by a wizard named Gandolf to become a burglar and to take back the treasure belonging to thirteen dwarves.  Bilbo doesn’t want to go but Gandolf talks him into it and they set out on the adventure.  Soon afterward, three trolls capture all of them except for Gandolf, who tricks the trolls into being outside as the sun rises where they turn into stone and the group escapes.

The group continues onto Rivendell the elfish stronghold where they take advice from the great elf.  Later they take refuge in a cavern where a group of goblins take them prisoner.  Gandolf helps the dwarves out of the cavern but Bilbo is accidently left.  While trying to find a way out, Bilbo finds a ring, then meets a whining creature named Gollum that lives in the caverns.  He wants to eat Bilbo but they have a contest and Bilbo wins.  Gollum goes for his ring only to find that he lost it. The ring is the same one that Bilbo found and he manages to escape and be reunited with his group.  Evil wolves know as Wargs begin chasing them and the party has to escape with the help of eagles.

Making their way through the forests, they are first captures by giant spiders, then by wood elves that live near the edge of the forest.  Both times Bilbo uses the ring to help the party escape and they make their way to Lake Town.  From Lake Town their destination can be seen:  the mountain where the thieving dragon lives.

Students entering college are frequently stepping out of their comfort zone, much as Bilbo Baggins did in leaving the hobbit shire.  Being outside of this safe zone puts students on the defensive and increases their stress levels.  When instructors add major writing assignments to this, many students break and drop out of school.  Companies like ours can prevent this.  Our staff of professional writers stands ready to take on any assignment, regardless of topic or size.  All we need is your order.
