The Hobbit eNotes Response Journal
Excerpt From this Document
- To Bilbo, an unexpected party is perhaps the greatest adventure of his life. Do you think he will have bigger adventures before the story ends? Explain your answer.
- What internal conflict does Bilbo experience when he wakes up and finds the dwarves and Gandalf gone? Why is he happy they have left without him? Why does he wish they had taken him along?
- Describe the valley of Rivendell in your own words. How is it different from the land outside the valley? Why are the travelers glad to be there?
- The narrator makes several hints that the cave Fili and Kili find is not a safe place. Identify as many of these hints as you can. How do they help to create suspense?
- What prompts Bilbo and his friends to leave the path and venture into Mirkwood? Do you think you would make the same decision in their position? Why or why not?
- Bilbo is forced to spend much of his treasure buying back his possessions when he gets home, so he does not end up much richer than when he left. What, then, has he gained from his journey?

Each Response Journal includes a rich variety of writing prompts: some will take students directly into the text, while others will give students an opportunity to express their thoughts and feelings and to reflect on their own experiences.
A second purpose of the eNotes Response Journal is to facilitate instruction in ways that work for you in the classroom. The organization of the Response Journal makes it easy to use, and the content and construction of the writing prompts are designed to develop students’ knowledge and academic skills.
