Scyld scefing and the dating
I’ve been studying this volume since last Christmas and have never faced a more challenging read.
The first draft of this first chapter reveals the following: (i) Bilbo’s final vanishment from hobbit society carefully mirrors the old – it is not only that the long-expected party (hosted by Bilbo) reflects the unexpected party (arranged by Gandalf) but the distribution of property after the vanishing reflects Bilbo’s return home to find his hobbit hole the scene of an auction.nevertheless, here's more Beowulf, in case anyone's interested.If you guys like it, I'll keep posting as I translate.(iii) The magic ring is very deliberately circled – it is said to be in Bilbo’s hand when he makes his announcement; yet it is not clear that Tolkien from the start has in mind that the ring will be passed on to Bilbo’s heir and be at the center of the new story.(2) A first page of notes: the Necromancer at the center Christopher Tolkien shows how his father began an expanded version of the first chapter but stopped half way when he had the idea that the party and vanishing were not of Bilbo but of his heir, Bingo (initially his son).Mercedes Salvador Bello Telefono: 954551559Email: Solicitar correo Perfil en ORCID: 0000-0003-0518-8631Perfil en Researcher ID: A-4782-2011Grupo de Investigacin: Estudios Medievales y Renacentistas Ingleses Departamento/Unidad: Filologa Inglesa (Literatura Inglesa y Norteamericana) Situacin profesional: Profesora Titular de Universidad Aldhelm's Enigma 100, Exeter Riddle 40 and the Exeter Book.

, written between December 1937 and late 1939 and almost entirely devoted to the journey from Bag End to Rivendell (the last chapters take us on to Moria).
With that caveat, I now set down some tenative conclusions intended to provide stable perspectives about what we find in of writing a story that took over a decade to complete. New Year – early summer 1938: Bingo (Bilbo’s heir) walks with hobbit friends all the way to Rivendell. Summer 1938: Bingo starts again from Bag End, this time in the company of Sam Gamgee; they reach the Old Forest. Autumn 1938: Tolkien again starts from Bag End, and now Bingo has become Frodo Baggins.
