Historical Context:
"When I was younger, Bilbo Baggins was one of my best friends. I loved the idea of a comfortable little homebody setting out on a grand adventure and finding that he had the potential to make a great difference. Fantasy is powerful because it can apply to so many people. The element of metaphor that's woven in between the strands of realism makes it incredibly adaptable. To a child a dragon may simply be a ferocious beast that has to be defeated but as adults we defeat our own dragons all the time though it's often not perceived this way. These are my dragons. What dragons have you defeated?" - Olivia Nevius
