Simile-"Keen as lances in the starlight"
Simile-"Voice like music"

I chose this quote because the story is about overcoming the rings power and Frodo begins to draw towards it.
Understanding the plot-"And yet their wills do not yield, and they struggled on."
I chose this quote because it tells of their long and dangerous journey from the Shire to Mordor.
Understanding the character-"His love for Frodo rose above all other thoughts, and forgetting his peril he cried aloud: I'm coming Mr. Frodo!"
I chose this quote because it describes sam in one sentences he is a very loyal friend and will always stand side by side with Frodo.
Understanding the plot-Frodo:''I will give you the one ring, if you ask for it" Lady Galadreil:''It is too great a matter for me."
This is important because it says how powerful the ring is Galadreil and Gandalf both refuse the ring and they are some of the most powerful beings in middle-earth.
Understanding the character-"I am glad you are here with me. Here at the end of all things, Sam."
This show the friendship and loyalty of two friends Sam and Frodo
Significance of the Title
Another symbol is the character Sam. Sam represents ideal friendship. He does this by putting Frodo above himself, he is loyal and stays with his friends no matter what.
The Black Riders are symbolic for greedy people. They are always chasing power in the form of the ring.
Because my family always has each others backs and we look out for each other.
Text to text-"He cried aloud I'm coming Mr. Frodo."
Sam says this and sam reminds me of Ron from Harry Potter they both stick with their friends and help defeat evil.
Text to world-"Yet their wills do not yield, and they struggle on."
This can relate to some people how live paycheck to paycheck and they have to work hard and just keep at it.
Text to text-"The riders were fast approaching"
The black riders are kind of like dementors in Harry Potter they hunt specific things and don't stop unless commanded by the enemy.
Text to world-"I will take the ring, though i do not know why"
This reminds me of a work place because people have to do things they don't want to do in order to keep the business running.
Text to self-"I feel thin, sort of stretched like butter scrapped over to much bread."
I can relate when I am stressed out and feel like i don't want to do anything.
Text to self-"A great desire came over him to climb the tower and see the sea."
I think this means he wants to see the world. I can relate to this because I love the feeling of being up high and looking out as far as I can.
Text to world- "Not all that was spoken and debated in the Council need now be told."
This reminds me of government because not all that they say is important, they talk a lot about things that don't seem to matter at all before they get to the main point,
Text to self- All were eager to get the journey over as quickly as possible, and were willing, tired as they were, to go on marching still for several hours.
I feel this way on long road trips when we have the opportunity to stop and rest I always want to keep on going so we can get it over with.
Text to self- Sam and Frodo's relationship reminds me of my best friend. We have been together for thick and thin and he has always got my back.
