The Fellowship of the Ring by JRR Tolkien is the first book in the fantasy-based trilogy of the Lord of the Rings The book begins with Bilbo Baggins celebrating his one hundred and eleventh birthday After his party he then decides to leave everything behind and join a Fellowship which has a task of destroying the Ruling Ring which will give Supreme Power to whoever has possession of it Just before he leaves Gandalf asks Bilbo for this ring Due to the power in which the ring possesses while the ring is in his possession he does not want to give it up The novel ends with the destruction of the Fellowship due to the power in which the ring contains One of the prime facts of the Middle Earth is power Power is not neutral but is always evil It gives wicked the chance to dominate The good is corrupting and inescapable Levitin 575 This is shown repeatedly throughout the novel from when Bilbo gives up the ring to when Boromir tries to take the ring and finally to seeing the control that the ring has over FrodoOne incident in the book which corresponds with how power is evil would be when Bilbo had to give up the Ring The ring is very powerful The power is so enticing that Bilbo is very weary to give up that ring When Gandalf asks Bilbo if he wishes to give up the ring Bilbo seems unsure saying yes and no When it came to having to give it up he didnt like parting with it at all and didnt see why he should have to Tolkien 55Due to the power in which Bilbo feels that the ring had given him he doesnt want to part with it By no means does Bilbo want to use the power in an evil manner to dominate all It is just the thought of power itself that causes this greed
