If you crossed a hobbit with an ent, would you get a stump?

I'm not sure what you want us to discuss here. I get the hobbit thing, sure, but can we get a little structure?

ha sorry. eh tell me what you thought of it, what you know about the world its set in, what you know about the author, stuff like that.

Analyze it as a modern take on the folkloric theme of "7 journey through the world." Look up old legends of Aurthur's court relating to this topic and Olric's laws of folklore. See how many connections you can find. Bonus points if you can use VJ Propp's "Morphology of a Folktale" as a source.

The Hobbit is a short story written by Bram Stoker back in 1392. It tells the story of Captain Superman and his quest to retrieve Thor's hammer, Mjolnir, back from the caves of the Klingons. What's there not to understand?

You forgot to mention the obvious pseudo-capitalist undertones the book has, and how the author subtly advocates a well-defined oligarchic power structure.

there is always the 'hero's journey.' also since it's Tolkien, you can look at the use of dragons (in this case Smaug) and their representation as the unknown or 'the other.' I also think that looking at the use of language (its written like its a kid book) as a way to insert quality themes such as, fear, growth (as a character -not vertically), the influence of 'fate', self-determination, hubris, and the unknown, in an easy-to digest, and unassuming fashion...

because Tolkien made his name academically based on his analysis of the dragon in Beowolf (he basically said it was a representation of the unknown, the wild, the uncontrolled and the fathomless enemy), I'd go the dragon route. Its cheeky but witty and if you have a legit professor he'll dig it

edit: b/c clearly your professor is a male...

I think the Hobbit was his best book. It isn't as boring in some parts as the other books which sometimes feel like reading the bible, and it actually feels like a magical journey filled with more humor and a better description of nature.

Just another fairytale with subliminal gay, jewish, socialist undertones. Nothing to see here.

There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

um, i read the Hobbit in 3rd grade? that's all I can really tell you. that and the only dwarf with an actual personality is Thorin, the rest are caricatures, like the 7 dwarves in Snow White.
