Oh, friends, go get yourself a subscription while it’s on sale in the U.S. until Dec 31st. It would make a wonderful Yule gift! Anyway, back to work… I am delighted to observe in which chapters there was no sleep.

• 1.074 In places deep, where dark things sleep,
• 1.123 and sleeps on it for a bed.
• 1.140 and dragons must sleep sometimes,
• 1.145 Bilbo went to sleep with that
• 2.031 “and where shall we get a dry patch to sleep on?”
• 2.065 in me sleep!
• 2.117 After that they slept,
• 3.033 or sleep, or work, or story-telling, or singing,
• 4.013 and so they dropped off to sleep one by one.
• 4.014 For, somehow, he could not go to sleep for a long while;
• 4.014 and when he did sleep,
• 6.063 and devouring people waked suddenly from their sleep.
• 6.100 and he felt he could sleep contentedly,
• 6.100 He slept curled up on the hard rock
• 6.100 in his sleep into all his different rooms
• 7.096 Soon he began to nod with sleep
• 7.105 It is time for us to sleep,’
• 7.119 your wits are sleepy.’
• 7.132 and most of them slept uneasily
• 8.005 They slept all closely huddled together,
• 8.033 Bombur slept on with a smile on his fat face,
• 8.038 Still Bombur slept
• 8.050 and sleep.
• 8.052 and sleep
• 8.068 and tried to go back to sleep
• 8.087 after a bee-autiful sleep.
• 8.129 into uncomfortable sleep full of horrible dreams,
• 8.130 You remember Bilbo falling like a log into sleep,
• 9.011 hardly daring to sleep,
• 11.028 and hardly slept.
• 12.011 in its sleep
• 12.016 Above him the sleeping dragon lay,
• 12.016 in his sleep.
• 12.032 and he went back to his golden couch to sleep –
• 12.043 watching while they sleep,
• 12.044 He was only pretending to sleep!
• 13.071 and slept,
• 15.031 That night the dwarves slept little.
• 15.038 in places deep, where dark things sleep,
• 16.013 There is no sleep
• 16.016 Bombur would sleep
• 16.016 (he could sleep at any time,
• 19.016 and you have slept now since the night’s beginning.
• 19.017 A little sleep does a great cure
• 19.017 and slept till late morning.

Thing

OED gives two verbal meanings for “Thing”: to argue something before a Thing, and to objectify. Of course there’s the Thing before which one things. The plain noun entry is massive and just informed an hour of my life down rabbit holes.

Look at 1.017 and 19.043. Do you see what I see in the Shire? Must examine more closely.

• 1.003 and saying things altogether unexpected.
• 1.012 Nasty disturbing uncomfortable things!
• 1.014 What a lot of things
• 1.017 you used to upset things badly
• 1.024 He did not remember things very well,
• 1.028 and hung his things up
• 1.033 It was not the correct thing to say,
• 1.043 and lots of other things which he did not understand,
• 1.050 For one thing Bombur was immensely fat
• 1.058 and things piled up on big trays,
• 1.063 and made tall piles of all the things.
• 1.068 of these dreadful things,
• 1.074 In places deep, where dark things sleep,
• 1.083 the hobbit felt the love of beautiful things
• 1.114 Now things begin to look more hopeful.
• 1.119 a bit more about things,’
• 1.119 but so far still Tookishly determined to go on with things.
• 1.122 and leisure to make beautiful things just for the fun of it,
• 1.123 and they can’t make a thing for themselves,
• 1.134 I was finding things out,
• 1.136 The one thing your father wished was for his son to read the map
• 1.142 One thing he did make his mind up about
• 2.025 and a good many other things,
• 2.038 things have changed for the worse
• 2.048 He had read of a good many things he had never seen or done.
• 2.077 that things were not all well.
• 2.108 The next thing was
• 3.002 He had never seen a thing
• 3.005 for one thing,
• 3.018 (which is a very foolish thing to think),
• 3.025 Elvish singing is not a thing to miss,
• 3.025 not if you care for such things.
• 3.031 Now it is a strange thing,
• 3.031 but things that are good to have
• 3.031 while things that are uncomfortable,
• 3.033 Evil things did not come into that valley.
• 4.001 and most of the passes were infested by evil things
• 4.002 where things were blue
• 4.002 and comfortable things,
• 4.013 So they spread out their wet things on the floor,
• 4.014 It turned out a good thing that night
• 4.024 (and other much more dreadful things),
• 4.025 They make no beautiful things,
• 4.029 “Of the things which you suspect
• 4.041 Gandalf thought of most things;
• 5.007 Only thing to do!
• 5.009 or half-imagined dark things coming out of them.
• 5.011 of nasty slimy things,
• 5.011 There are strange things living
• 5.011 also there are other things more slimy than fish.
• 5.011 there are other things living unbeknown to them
• 5.036 and was forgetting this sort of thing.
• 5.039 Bilbo had heard that sort of thing before;
• 5.055 This thing all things devours:
• 5.055 This thing all things devours:
• 5.056 but not one of them had done all these things.
• 5.060 with that nasty wet cold thing sitting next to him,
• 5.070 He thought of all the things he kept
• 5.070 and other nasty things.
• 5.077 But he felt he could not trust this slimy thing
• 5.082 and get some things first,
• 5.082 yes, things to help us.’
• 5.083 What useful thing could he keep out on the dark lake?
• 5.084 and one very beautiful thing,
• 5.098 on this one thing,
• 5.114 the nassty nosey thing.
• 5.119 He had heard of such things,
• 5.128 He must stab the foul thing,
• 5.130 the only thing he had ever cared for,
• 5.132 or this way will lead you to worse things.’
• 6.009 and I don’t bring things that are of no use.
• 6.060 and wicked things,
• 6.067 and can see small things
• 6.070 A very good thing too!
• 6.070 Dreadful things had been going on down there.
• 6.074 O what shall we do with the funny little things?
• 7.002 The sun was still close to the eastern edge of things.
• 7.007 That is the polite thing to say among eagles.
• 7.016 He calls things like that carrocks,
• 7.092 and carry things with their fore-feet.
• 7.095 and the making of things by smith-craft,
• 7.095 and Beorn did not appear to care for such things:
• 7.095 there were no things of gold or silver
• 7.098 and dark things silent crept beneath.
• 7.126 in there the wild things are dark,
• 7.145 that a thing like a bear left the shadow of the trees
• 8.003 As Bilbo’s sharp inquisitive eyes got used to seeing things
• 8.003 The nastiest things they saw were the cobwebs:
• 8.046 the first thing they noticed was
• 8.046 and the next thing was
• 8.047 The last thing that he remembered was the party at the hobbit’s house,
• 8.048 and I could not count or describe the things there were to eat
• 8.057 all the good things that were being eaten,
• 8.064 and other things of that sort,
• 8.075 He could only see the thing’s eyes,
• 8.075 The spider evidently was not used to things
• 8.078 (or worse things).
• 8.092 As a boy he used to practise throwing stones at things,
• 8.092 indeed he could do lots of things,
• 8.121 Things were looking pretty bad again,
• 8.131 and marvellous things,
• 8.144 The giant spiders were the only living things
• 9.011 though it was a dangerous thing to do.
• 9.017 One invisible ring was a very fine thing,
• 9.018 Bilbo discovered a very interesting thing:
• 9.037 butter, apples, and all sorts of things,
• 10.044 and their arrival had turned things into a long holiday
• 11.026 and spy things out a bit!’
• 12.012 Going on from there was the bravest thing he ever did.
• 12.012 The tremendous things that happened afterwards
• 12.013 lay countless piles of precious things,
• 12.021 Such a thing had not happened
• 12.082 On thinking things over
• 12.082 some of the things
• 12.089 you found out one very useful thing at any rate,
• 12.096 and to the things that Thorin
• 13.018 as he stumbled on some golden thing.
• 13.043 and they met no sign of any living thing,
• 13.067 and things might have been different.
• 13.071 In all their talk they came perpetually back to one thing:
• 14.007 You are always foreboding gloomy things!’
• 14.038 with which to buy rich things from the South;
• 14.039 and ordered things as he wished,
• 14.040 among all things with wings
• 15.009 and were rewarded with such bright things as they coveted
• 15.034 that they wished things had fallen out otherwise
• 15.038 in places deep, where dark things sleep,
• 15.049 yet he had an eye for many another wonderful thing
• 16.004 Things had gone on like this for some time,
• 16.026 things are impossible.
• 16.036 whose eyes were used to things of wonder and beauty,
• 16.045 Things are drawing towards the end now,
• 17.024 But things may change yet.’
• 18.051 and there were many other things in it
• 19.009 and tales of new things,
• 19.028 As all things come to an end,
• 19.036 and most of the things
• 19.043 and Bilbo asked how things were going

Dark

I note that these variations of “dark” are used one gross of times. Bless. there is a verb “to dark” which means not only “to darken”, but “to listen privily and insidiously”. I’m in love. It’s an Anglo-Saxon word – the Germanic sister-languages have the verb form but not adjective. And, I’m even deeper in love, there’s a dialectical variant “therk”. The derivative “therkness” is so magnificent, I might have to go name something after it.

Of course, our favorite chapter title is here today…

Place

Is it my imagination, or is “place” only a noun in this list? Friends, please let me know if anyone in the story “places” something somewhere! This strikes me as odd. Does it strike you so?

• 1.006 and adventures sprouted up all over the place wherever he went,
• 1.072 in the deep places of their ancient homes;
• 1.074 In places deep, where dark things sleep,
• 3.001 at a wide shallow place
• 3.008 some of them green pleasant places to look at,
• 4.005 in a narrow place,
• 5.004 in that horrible place.
• 5.008 in what is called a tight place.
• 5.008 and after all if their holes are nice cheery places
• 5.009 in Mr. Baggins’ place,
• 5.035 “But in low place
Not in high place.'”
• 5.035 “But in low place
Not in high place.'”
• 5.087 He might even venture into places where the torches were lit
• 5.113 We doesn’t remember all the places we’ve visited.
• 5.120 Soon they came to places where,
• 5.145 The place was full of goblins running about,
• 6.048 Somehow it struck all of them as not at all a nice place,
• 6.052 and were trying to find a place to sit
• 6.059 they can be perfectly miserable places.
• 6.062 and building themselves places to live in
• 6.064 in a very bad place,
• 6.070 in several places.
• 6.088 and fear lest he fall off that narrow place
• 7.084 in places,
• 7.116 this is a splendid place for smoke rings!’
• 7.117 I had to walk miles before I found a place
• 7.126 And in the dim shadows of that place
• 7.130 for at a place a few days’ ride due north of the Carrock
• 7.151 I don’t advise you to go anywhere near the places
• 8.003 in places on the forest-floor;
• 8.005 in another place.
• 8.035 and places where the sunlight came again.
• 8.037 and in places they could see
• 8.041 in a difficult place
• 8.068 in this beastly place,’
• 8.081 when he noticed a place of dense black shadow ahead of him,
• 8.092 in this place
• 8.094 to a different place.
• 8.094 When about fifty had gone off to the place where he had stood before,
• 8.098 in the place came after him:
• 8.099 Off Bilbo scuttled to a fresh place,
• 8.117 that is more or less the way towards the place
• 8.125 in its proper place.
• 8.132 and the strong place of his treasure,
• 9.011 in that place all alone,
• 9.013 in a specially deep dark place.
• 9.013 At last after many difficulties he managed to find the place
• 9.020 to a place far down the river where the bank jutted out,
• 9.030 in a deep place
• 9.051 in his place.
• 9.051 to the place where the barrels were collected.
• 9.061 In this way at last Mr. Baggins came to a place
• 10.036 in places of honour.
• 12.091 in my bones that this place will be attacked again.
• 12.094 in a place
• 13.009 in the place,
• 13.052 is the safest place for a meal.
• 13.062 It’s a cold lonesome place,’ said Bombur.
• 13.066 Here they found a flat place without a wall
• 13.067 There were several places like it round the Mountain.
• 14.008 in the low place
• 14.023 in one place.
• 14.033 He has tonight earned an eminent place
• 14.043 in the same place.
• 15.021 and dwells nearest to this place.
• 15.038 in places deep, where dark things sleep,
• 15.050 and in the chief place,’
• 15.053 In this debate they have no place.
• 15.060 The whole place still stinks of dragon,’
• 16.024 from this cold cheerless place,’
• 17.047 Let us take our places while there is yet time!’
• 18.010 in this place.
• 18.043 to the north of the place where the Forest River ran out.
• 19.018 Yet even that place could not long delay him now,
• 19.024 he quickly noted the place

Bell

So, why didn’t the bells ring during Smaug’s attack?? No warning bells in Laketown? 14.035 seems to indicate so, and perhaps bells are precious things only for soft times, such as in The Shire.

• 1.025 there came a tremendous ring on the front-door bell,
• 1.029 when there came another even louder ring at the bell.
• 1.037 when loud came a ring at the bell again,
• 1.043 his bell rang again,
• 1.046 Then the bell rang again louder than ever,
• 1.074 While hammers fell like ringing bells
• 1.080 The bells were ringing in the dale
• 1.123 By that time all the bells were ringing
• 3.040 and its merry bells,
• 11.007 when the bells rang
• 14.035 and filled with golden bells,
• 15.038 While hammers fell like ringing bells

Fall

For Tolkien, this never means “Autumn”.

• 1.048 and they all fell in,
• 1.074 While hammers fell like ringing bells
• 1.081 They fled their hall to dying fall
• 1.090 may the hair on his toes never fall out!
• 1.092 Then he fell flat on the floor,
• 1.123 and a fog fell on Dale,
• 2.037 they fell to arguing.
• 2.112 It must have fallen out of his pocket,
• 3.010 They came to the edge of a steep fall
• 3.012 and nearly fell off,
• 4.005 with a dreadful fall into a dim valley at one side of them.
• 4.014 – beginning to fall down, down,
• 4.016 and several of them fell dead.
• 4.027 pulling at Bilbo’s chain so that he fell forward onto his knees.
• 4.036 and the smoke that now fell from the roof
• 4.037 He fell dead,
• 4.047 At this point Gandalf fell behind,
• 4.051 and fell;
• 5.002 in when he had his fall.
• 5.008 and recover wonderfully from falls
• 5.050 and fell on Bilbo’s toes.
• 5.106 and fell flat with his little sword under him.
• 6.001 Their shadows fell across Bilbo’s path,
• 6.020 and fell over,
• 6.040 of a wide steep slope of fallen stones,
• 6.060 and their dreadful clamour almost made the hobbit fall
• 6.070 Yellowing bracken, fallen branches,
• 6.088 and fell onto the rough platform of an eagle’s eyrie.
• 6.088 and fear lest he fall off that narrow place
• 7.024 if any had been ripe enough yet to have fallen to the ground.
• 7.045 and fell golden on the garden full of flowers that came right up to the steps.
• 7.089 the sun had fallen behind the peaks of the Misty Mountains
• 7.106 and he fell asleep.
• 7.107 and fell asleep again at last
• 7.108 One of the dwarves had fallen over him
• 8.008 and fallen leaving only the broken posts near the bank.
• 8.018 Splash it fell
• 8.021 and suddenly they all fell over on their backs.
• 8.028 Since it did not fall down again,
• 8.030 Bombur has fallen in!
• 8.032 Then they all fell silent;
• 8.046 and waiting for a chance drip to fall
• 8.063 and complete darkness fell.
• 8.065 In the dark he fell over what he thought was a log,
• 8.072 Dead silence fell
• 8.074 and not for the last time fell to thinking
• 8.074 so that when he got up he fell over.
• 8.075 and then he fell down
• 8.089 and the enraged spider fell off the branch,
• 8.108 and fell plop on to the ground,
• 8.112 and fell down the tree
• 8.125 though they fell over with the effort,
• 8.126 and after a while they all fell silent again.
• 8.127 and then he fell asleep,
• 8.130 and as the lights went out he fell like a stone enchanted.
• 9.026 and fell fast asleep.
• 9.026 and he fell asleep
• 9.044 Small wonder if I fall asleep from weariness!’
• 9.045 Come give us a taste of your sleeping-draught before we fall to!
• 9.054 Down into the water he fell,
• 9.055 Then suddenly the trapdoors fell to with a boom
• 10.001 Suddenly the cliff fell away.
• 10.003 and pieced together the scraps of information they let fall,
• 10.003 or fell into disuse;
• 10.006 the noise of the falls could be heard
• 10.007 and was carted past the falls to their town;
• 10.008 and the fall of the lords of Dale.
• 10.010 and the shades of night had fallen.
• 11.003 and their spirits fell.
• 11.013 that fell ever downwards towards the plain.
• 11.016 with a fall of a hundred
• 11.032 They all fell silent:
• 11.032 and their hopes fell.
• 11.032 and fell on the smooth rock-face.
• 11.032 and fell.
• 12.029 Then darkness fell as he passed again.
• 12.048 and tales fall utterly short of the reality,
• 12.068 certainly never how any part of it that might fall to his share
• 12.081 and fell
• 12.098 had fallen from Bilbo.
• 12.101 and stones fell from the roof on their heads.
• 12.101 and an avalanche of splintered stones fell
• 13.001 and utter silence fell about them.
• 13.015 when Bilbo fell forward down the step with a bump into the hall,
• 13.019 it took all light that fell upon it
• 13.023 and fell.
• 13.034 fall back through their fingers with a sigh.
• 13.046 a sound of water fell upon their ears,
• 13.048 and beams of gold fell
• 13.049 Now before them the water fell noisily outward
• 13.064 they found long fallen,
• 14.013 and their shafts fell back kindled by his breath burning
• 14.015 and fell;
• 14.024 Full on the town he fell.
• 14.035 and he fell suddenly silent.
• 14.039 although it was then only the third day after the fall of Smaug.
• 14.043 that fell from his rotting carcase.
• 15.017 may his feathers never fall,
• 15.017 He saw him fall
• 15.028 to the head of the fall
• 15.031 and appeared at the top of the falls;
• 15.034 that they wished things had fallen out otherwise
• 15.036 And ever so his foes shall fall.
• 15.038 While hammers fell like ringing bells
• 15.042 And ever so our foes shall fall!
• 15.043 But Bilbo’s heart fell,
• 16.017 and fell into the cold water with a splash.
• 17.042 Amazement and confusion fell upon them all.
• 17.044 This is how it fell out.
• 17.044 Ever since the fall of the Great Goblin
• 17.048 and many there fell before the rest drew back
• 17.053 heedless of those that fell screaming
• 17.055 fell outward with a crash into the pool.
• 17.056 leapt down to the falls’ foot,
• 17.056 and rider fell or fled before them.
• 17.066 and he fell with a crash
• 18.002 At any rate I am not yet one of the fallen heroes;
• 18.023 He fell upon their rear,
• 18.023 who had fallen pierced with spears,
• 18.024 Then dismay fell on the Goblins
• 18.025 before the fall of night;
• 18.031 There let it lie till the Mountain falls!’
• 18.032 Fili and Kili had fallen defending him
• 19.005 for Bilbo was fallen quiet
• 19.009 till Bilbo’s head fell forward on his chest,
• 19.014 Fall Moon! Dark be the land!
• 19.018 Weariness fell from him soon
• 19.023 as evening fell,
• 19.024 where the pony had fallen
• 19.043 They fell to talking of their times together,
• 19.044 he fell under the dragon-sickness,
