Bilbo has adventure in him. It’s just hidden under the Baggins side of his nature. He was more easily flummoxed (19, 25) than favorable to something that would “Make you late for dinner!” (12). However, because he “got something a bit queer in his make-up from the Took side” (11), there was a chance it could be brought out. And how was it brought out? Music: “It was a beautiful golden harp, and when Thorin struck it the music began all at once, so sudden and sweet that Bilbo forgot everything else, and was swept away into dark lands under strange moons, far over The Water and very far from his hobbit-hole under The Hill” (22). Thus begins the adventures of Bilbo Baggins. Had there been no music…. Well, we wouldn’t want to think of that now would we?
