The Fellowship of the Ring Scene 5

Scene 5

Scene 5

  • Now we take a turn for the merrier and find ourselves with Bilbo in the Shire.
  • Bilbo is starting to write his tale, There and Back Again (which you may know as The Hobbit ) and narrates to us some of the nuances of the hobbit race.
  • They like food and ale and smoking pipes and growing things; they don't like interacting with the outside world and the outside world doesn't pay them much attention (basically they're a race of college students, hairy feet and all).
  • Mostly, they are a people of peace and we can see it clearly as everyone hustles about the green village preparing for Bilbo's birthday bash.
