For those of us working with the fascinating 1937 edition of The Hobbit, here’s your index to all the paragraphs of Chapter V. Â This chapter is the most changed between 1937 and 1951, with different plot elements and a very different Gollum. Â Each paragraph is identified by the prefix 1937.05. then the paragraph number within that chapter. Â Thank you to John Rateliff for his help with the text.Â Gratitude to my Data Mooshing Specialist, Daroc Alden.
