Herein, what is the main message of the Hobbit?
The most prominent theme in The Hobbit is bravery, and the transformation of Bilbo Baggins from a timid homebody living quietly in his hobbit hole in the Shire to the brave hero at the center of a dangerous adventure. It was an act of bravery for Bilbo to simply leave the comfort of his home in the first place.
Likewise, how long was the quest in The Hobbit? TL; DR: Frodo and Sam's journey from The Shire to Mordor took 6 months, but three months were spent in Rivendell and Lorien. So their actual travel time was about three months. Frodo left Bag End on September 23, Third Age 3018.
Also question is, what is Bilbo's quest?
In The Hobbit, Bilbo Baggins, a hobbit in comfortable middle age, is hired as a "burglar" – despite his initial objections – by the wizard Gandalf and 13 Dwarves led by their king, Thorin Oakenshield. The Dwarves are on a quest to reclaim the Lonely Mountain and its treasures from the dragon Smaug.
Is the hobbit an allegory?
ANSWER: No. The only allegorical stories that J.R.R. Tolkien published were “Leaf by Niggle” (which represented his own near-slavish devotion to improving and extending the details of his literature) and “Smith of Wootton Major”.
