At the beginning of Chapter 1 Bilbo, the main character, has an internal conflict. The internal conflict Bilbo experiences is a clash of emotions on whether being polite to the dwarfs and the wizard (Gandalf) or expressing his true emotions. Usually hobbits are very polite creatures and are not the most talkative, they are very conservative in many ways. Bilbo feels very explosive inside especially when they sing the song about him. He is very confused and is in a very uncomfortable situation of internal conflict.
