How does the author portray the goblins to be different from the elves in The Hobbit?

When The Hobbit was written, I don't think that Tolkien had imagined that the Orcs/Goblins were derived from the Elves. In many ways the Goblins of the Misty Mountains were somewhat to the Silvan Elves of the Woodland Realm: - They both lived underground - They both were suspicious of outsiders (especially dwarves) How they differed: - Goblins preferred the dark places and shunned daylight, Elves lived underground to avoid detection - The Elves were beautiful, the goblins ugly - The Elves only greed was for wine and song, while the Goblins were just plain greedy This is just on the surface too. Later we are told that the Goblins/Orcs are actually Elves that were twisted and corrupted by Morgoth, Sauron's master.

What happens when Bilbo finally returns home from The Hobbit?

He goes back to living like all the other normal hobbits, in his little hobbit hole at Bag End, Hobbiton. Many of the Shire-folk considered him strange (a bit fanatical, maybe). Hardly any of them had been in his hobbit-hole, he had many odd guests come calling on him (dwarves, wizards and the like) and it was even said that the tunnels of his hole were filled with wild treasure (which is of course, untrue). Nevertheless, Bilbo was a perfectly happy, peaceful-living hobbit. NOTE: Bilbo has been presumed deceased, and his possessions are being auctioned off when he returns.

Was Bilbo Baggins accepted back into The Hobbit community at the end of The Hobbit?

Bilbo changes a lot after his adventure, and is also considerably more well off because of the two chests of silver and gold he brings back. At the beginning of The Fellowship of the Ring, it is mentioned that Bilbo is now seen as un-hobbit-like, and Frodo is also seen as odd. However, the hobbit community is not one that would particularly ostracise any of its members, and as Bilbo is still quite rich, it doesn't seem to be a problem for him. Many hobbits still choose to attend his birthday party, so perhaps he is just seen as the local eccentric. I can add. Bilbo was accepted back but after his adventure with Gandalf he was never the same. Neither were the people's attitudes towards him. They respected him but from that day on saw him as a strange fellow and I believe attanded his parties only because he was a well known Hobbit (and of course ALL hobbits like to eat)!
