First, it’s worth mentioning that Frodo Baggins inherited this ruling ring of life a long time ago (even before Harry Hotter and Luke Skywalker). This story is created by John Tolkien who was born in the end of the 19th century. He has spent his happy childhood in the countryside, and this is what shaped his sensibility to rural landscapes, and this aspect can be clearly seen in his pictures and literary works. Besides, he developed amazing linguistics abilities and invented different languages related to elvish or fairy people.
After the WWI, Tolkien got his first job post and started to write his famous legendary and mythological cycle that was first called The Book of Lost Tales. Eventually, all readers know this cycle as The Silmarillion. Later, he became a professor in Oxford, and this is where he worked with a lot of enthusiasm for a long time. Another important fact that should be remembered is that Tolkien was one of the best and most accomplished philologists in the world.
In overall, his big family (he has 4 children) encouraged his to use his incredible mythological imagination to deal with a number of interesting homely topics. Tolkien wrote and illustrated his book for kids and told them the story of hobbit that was published a bit later. When this story was published, it became quite popular so that he was asked to write a sequel. This is how The Lord of the Rings appeared to tell us more about the story of the ruling ring of life.
The main character of this book is Frodo Baggins who receives this magical ring from his relative Bilbo Baggins. Besides, there are other important characters, including Merry, Sam, Gimli, Legolas, Boromir, Strider, and so on. Keep in mind that the whole story takes place on Middle-Earth, which consists of Rohan, Shire, Gondor, and Mordor.
Everything starts when Bilbo Baggins celebrates his birthday, after which he decides to present his relative Frodo with the ruling ring of life. The secret is that it turns out to be the famous One Ring created and worn by Sauron. He is the dark Lord who had enough power to rule other rings of power and life that were created by the Elven-smiths.
Sauron lost this ring and did his best to find it, but he couldn’t. By chance, it fell into the hands of Bilbo Baggins who kept it hidden for a long time, and he left Frodo with the huge burden to destroy it. This means that Frodo should start his remarkable and scary journey across Middle-Earth to get into Mordor where this ring must be destroyed.
