A great modern classic and the prelude to The Lord of the Rings. Bilbo Baggins is a hobbit who enjoys a comfortable, unambitious life, rarely traveling any farther than his pantry or cellar. But his contentment is disturbed when the wizard Gandalf and a company of dwarves arrive on his doorstep one day to whisk him away on an adventure. They have launched a plot to raid the treasure hoard guarded by Smaug the Magnificent, a large and very dangerous dragon. Bilbo reluctantly joins their quest, unaware that on his journey to the Lonely Mountain he will encounter both a magic ring and a frightening creature known as Gollum. “A glorious account of a magnificent adventure, filled with suspense and seasoned with a quiet humor that is irresistible . . . All those, young or old, who love a fine adventurous tale, beautifully told, will take The Hobbit to their hearts.” – New York Times Book Review

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2006 im Fachbereich Englisch - Padagogik, Didaktik, Sprachwissenschaft, Note: 1-, Bayerische Julius-Maximilians-Universitat Wurzburg (Institut fur Anglistik und Amerikanistik), Veranstaltung: Oberseminar Kulturwissenschaft und Postmodernismus, 12 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Durch die Verfilmungen von John Ronald Reuel Tolkiens Hauptwerk The Lord of the Rings durch Peter Jackson in den Jahren 2001 bis 2003 in drei uber dreistundigen Filmen ist die Popularitat Tolkiens Werke noch grosser geworden als sie schon zur Zeit ihrer Veroffentlichung und vor allem in den sechziger Jahren waren. Es loste einen sehr grossen Mittelerde-Boom aus. Nicht nur Bucher folgten, auch Computerspiele, Musik und conventions auf denen sich die Fans von Mittelerde treffen. Nach der Bibel ist The Lord of the Rings das meistverkaufte Buch des 20. Jahrhunderts. Allerdings ist eine Umsetzung von The Lord of the Rings im Englischunterricht hier sehr zwiespaltig, da dieses Werk mit einem Umfang von uber 1200 Seiten den Rahmen, den der Lehrplan fur die 10. Klasse an Realschulen fur den Literaturunterricht vorsieht, deutlich ubersteigen wurde. Neben dem Hauptwerk gibt es allerdings auch weniger umfangreichere Bucher von Tolkien, die sich deshalb eher fur den Einsatz im Englischunterricht eignen. Beispiele hierfur sind The Hobbit, Farmer Giles of Ham oder auch Roverandom. Der Einsatz des Ersteren im Unterricht soll das Thema dieser Arbeit sein, da es doch sozusagen als Vorgeschichte zu The Lord of the Rings fur Jugendliche recht interessant sein kann. Ausgehend vom Lehrplan an bayerischen Realschulen soll der Einsatz von Literatur und insbesondere von fantasy literature im Englischunterricht deutlich gemacht werden. Neben einer Sachanalyse von The Hobbit soll ebenfalls eine didaktische Analyse Teil dieser Arbeit sein, um einige mogliche Umsetzungen fur den Englischunterricht zu zeige
