PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If you have any doubts about the validity of teaching The Hobbit, an examination of Tolkien’s use of figurative language and imagery in the text should convince you of the literary value of the novel. This activity includes examples with page numbers for:
• 21 examples of metaphors
• 22 examples of simile
• 23 examples of personification
• 20 examples of tactile imagery
• 20 examples of auditory imagery
• 21 examples of olfactory imagery
• 20 examples of gustatory imagery, and
• 20 examples of visual imagery
These examples come from various chapters from the text. They can be used by the teacher to identify the types of figurative language and imagery as they are reading with students or following independent reading. It is also be easy to combine these examples into study guides or quizzes to help students learn to distinguish between metaphor, simile, and personification or the various types of imagery used in the text. An example of a test and answer key generated from the various examples is included that will help you design either tests or study guides from the various examples provided by just using cut and paste.
