Comparing and Contrasting Steps of Bilbo's Hero's Journey
« on: April 30, 2020, 05:25:21 PM »
The Hero's Journey in the Hobbit can be seen with Bilbo throughout the storyline, however there are some interesting steps in The Hobbit that are a little different than the traditional timeline of The Hero's Journey, with the Refusal of Return being one of them. We see that Bilbo doesn't really refuse the return home but is seen to want to return and becomes tired with having more roadblocks in his way. An idea for a lesson activity with this in mind, is to have students find another story that follows The Hero's Journey, and have them compare it to Bilbo's. They can work in groups to come up with a presentation of what they found which they can share at the end of the class. This can be repeated with other steps throughout the story.
