Hobbit Essay The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien is set in a fantasy world that has differences as well as similarities to our own world The author has created the novels world Middle Earth not only by using imagination but by also adding details from the modern world Realistic elements in the book enable readers to relate to the setting they read about but are still able to imagine exciting events and creatures not possible on Earth The following are some of the differences and similarities between Earth and the make believe land of Middle Earth in The Hobbit The majority of differences between Middle Earth and todays world are found in the objects and the actions of characters that can not be carried out or created in our world The most abundant example of this in The Hobbit is the presence of magic Gandalf the wizard is able to help the adventurers out of a number of dangerous situations by using his magical powers to harm their enemies He set Wargs afire while he was trapped in a tree and created a bolt of lightening to kill many of the Goblins who had surrounded the group in a cave The magical ring in the story was a key to helping the group succeed in the book It allowed he who was wearing it to become invisible to others Also there was a black stream in Mirkwood which Beorn had warned them of He cautioned them that the water made whoever drank out of it suddenly very drowsy and forgetful of previous events All of these examples and objects found in Middle Earth are physically impossible in a world such as ours Several of the organisms in the book are not known to exist on Earth Hobbits of course are fictional characters as are dwarves elves goblins and trolls Many species of animals are able to vocally communicate with humans
