Contends the events of The Lord of the Rings, culminating in the Scouring of the Shire, demonstrate a coming-of-age for the individual hobbits of the Fellowship, for some social and for others spiritual. The Shire’s response to Sharkey, especially after the Fellowship members return, is a coming-of-age for Hobbit society as a whole.
