This paper examines writer J.R.R Tolkien, one of the first fantasy writers, through his Lord of the Ring series. The author summarizes each work and explains how each Tolkien novel includes all of the elements that make a great fantasy series including epic battles in far-off places, interesting, creative characters and plots filled with wonder, amazement, and magic.

From the Paper:

"As in all fantasy novels there has to be a hero. Usually the hero is the person least expected and goes through significant changes throughout the novel. Bilbo Baggins is the hero in The Hobbit. In the beginning he is very weak and afraid, but as the story progresses he changes significantly. Bilbo shows all of the signs of being a hero. "
